About Citizen


Citizens mission is to protect the world. We began by opening the NYC and San Francisco 911 system to local Citizen app users, creating access to real-time crime and safety information. By growing situational awareness and visibility, we are making communities safer than ever before.


Since our launch in New York, over 10% of New Yorkers have now used Citizen, and that growth is accelerating. We're now live in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, with many more cities on the way. Citizen notifications have urged people to evacuate burning buildings, deterred school buses from nearby terrorist attacks and have even led to a rescue of a 1-year-old from a stolen car.


Were looking for hardworking, mission-driven individuals to help take the Citizen app to the next level as we scale up new cities and expand globally.


Citizen is backed by Sequoia Capital, 8VC, and Founders Fund.


Role Description

  • Work as an architect and developer, designing and building our systems for scale, modularity, and flexibility without compromising on reliability.
  • Deliver backend systems with attention to high availability, low latency, and scalability.
  • Build and operate infrastructure, toolset, and deployment pipelines.
  • Take operational responsibility for the services we build.
  • Work with proven open-source tools, rather than bespoke custom implementations.


Requirements

  • Bachelors Degree in Computer Science or related field.
  • 5 -10 years engineering experience, focusing primarily on backend development.
  • Hands-on experience with some of the following: video streaming; scalable SQL; tuning distributed systems; DevOps at scale; software defined radios; digital signal processing.
  • Experience with large codebases in systems languages like Go, Python, C, Java, etc.
  • Enjoys teaching and collaborating with others.


Citizen offers a competitive benefits package including medical, dental, vision, flexible spending accounts, paid time off, company holidays, stock option plan, commuter benefits, and various wellness perks.


Citizen is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all.
