Who is Flock?

Flock Safety is an all-in-one technology solution to eliminate crime and keep communities safe. Our intelligent platform combines the power of communities at scale – including cities, businesses, schools, and law enforcement agencies – to shape a safer future together. Our full-service, maintenance-free technology solution is trusted by communities across the country to help solve and deter crime in the pursuit of safer communities for everyone.

Our holistic public safety platform is comprehensive and intelligent, providing the actionable evidence needed to solve, deter and reduce crime across neighborhoods, schools, businesses and entire cities. Without compromising transparency or privacy, we are turning unbiased data into objective answers.

Flock strives to offer a career-defining experience where you can also make an impact on your community. While safety is a serious business, we are a supportive team that is optimizing the remote experience to create strong and fulfilling relationships even when we are physically apart. Our group of hard-working employees thrive in a positive and inclusive environment, where a bias towards action is rewarded.

We have raised over $380M in venture capital from investors including Tiger Global, Andreessen Horowitz, Matrix Partners, Meritech Capital Partners, and Initialized Capital. Now surpassing a $3B valuation, Flock is scaling intentionally and seeking the best and brightest to help us meet our goal of reducing crime in the United States by 25% in the next three years.

The Opportunity

Our Device Engineering org requires technical project management to ensure our embedded software, hardware, and quality teams successfully deliver on business goals. This portfolio of initiatives includes power products to enable infrastructure-free deployments, accessories for current and emerging products, projects to enable special operations and manufacturing initiatives, and general process improvement efforts (primarily including the Jira system and related project management).

The Skillset

Experience partnering with hardware engineers and embedded software developers to ensure the various functional teams have a detailed plan for the timely delivery of device deliverables
Ability to develop plans that are properly aligned with key stakeholders, including product management, operations, and leadership to ensure dependencies are fleshed out and project goals are clear
Capable of identifying gaps or risks and moving quickly to mitigate those issues. At Flock we take ownership and resolve problems, never assuming ‘someone else is going to take care of it’
Ability to foster a great project environment with communication at its core – you will facilitate team meetings, keep the team on priority tasks, document assumptions and decisions, wrangle slack conversations, and anything else it takes to ensure consistent alignment and forward progress
Have a technical background that provides the foundation for navigating our engineering environment with ease
Have experience with project management software. Specific administrative experience with the Atlassian (Jira) portfolio is preferred
Have proven experience as a member of a development team that has shipped consumer or IOT electronic devices
Be familiar with embedded software solutions, especially Android!

Feeling uneasy that you haven’t ticked every box? That’s okay, we’ve felt that way too. Studies have shown women and minorities are less likely to apply unless they meet all qualifications. We encourage you to break the status quo and apply to roles that would make you excited to come to work every day.
