Who is Flock?

Flock Safety provides the first public safety operating system that empowers private communities and law enforcement to work together to eliminate crime. We are committed to protecting human privacy and mitigating bias in policing with the development of best-in-class technology rooted in ethical design, which unites civilians and public servants in pursuit of a safer, more equitable society.

Our Safety-as-a-Service approach includes affordable devices powered by LTE and solar that can be installed anywhere.  Our technology detects and captures objective details, decodes evidence in real-time, and delivers investigative leads into the hands of those who matter.

While safety is a serious business, we are a supportive team that is optimizing the remote experience to create strong and fun relationships even when we are physically apart. Our flock of hard-working employees thrive in a positive and inclusive environment, where a bias towards action is rewarded. Flock Safety is headquartered in Atlanta and operates nationwide. We have raised over $380M in venture capital including a recent Series E round led by Tiger Global.  Now surpassing a 3B valuation, Flock is scaling quickly 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 Role

The Flock Device team is looking to add a Technical Project Manager who is responsible for coordinating and leading multi-functional teams across numerous projects. Our Device team is made up of badass engineers who are responsible for all of the hardware and software on a variety of devices Flock deploys in the real world. The ideal candidate is someone who is passionate about taking new products and cutting edge research from concept to production. 

How you’ll make an impact:

  • Ensure Flock technology is developed and implemented on time, across project teams, and aligned with top level project goals
  • Own and coordinate team activities within the development lifecycle (phase gate planning, milestone reviews, sprint planning, stand-ups, etc.)
  • Develop and maintain all project schedules and project dependencies, ensuring schedule integration across functional teams based upon those dependencies
  • Work closely with Product and Engineering management to ensure that the team’s development efforts are aligned to company strategy
  • Evaluate, identify, and minimize risk: remove roadblocks and ensure proper timing of deliverables
  • Coordinate with stakeholders on status updates and support client meetings around program status
  • Improve and expand upon our project management process, tools, and methodologies
  • Firefighter mode! Help teams triage, investigate, and resolve issues

We’re looking for people who:

  • Have a minimum of 5 years bringing technology based products to market; you are very comfortable navigating integrated hardware & software projects
  • Possess a strong understanding of the product development lifecycle, with familiarity in electrical, mechanical, embedded systems, application software development, and manufacturing 
  • Have excellent organizational and time management skills, with the ability to leverage this in your work, while supporting a flexible, change oriented culture
  • Are comfortable holding others to target deliverables and escalating when needed 
  • Effectively communicate at the level of your audience, and seek to understand and be understood
  • Have experience with Jira or similar project management tools
  • Have a Project Management or Agile certification (not necessary but is a plus)
  • Enjoy working on a product you can touch, see, and experience
  • Are excited about working on a fast-paced, constantly evolving product that is making a significant impact in the world
  • Are able to crack a joke every now and then, even if you're the only one who laughs

 

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.
