Communications Analyst, Crime Operations Center
New York City
Citizen is hiring. We invite you to apply for Citizen Bootcamp, an intensive training program for candidates who may be qualified to join our Crime Operations Center.
Our mission is to protect the world. We are building a global safety network of people protecting each other.
The Citizen movement is powered by technology that generates instant alerts about crime and other emergencies - as they occur. Each incident on the platform creates a temporary local network of people who use the Citizen product to protect each other, broadcasting live video and communicating with others nearby.
Our technology is operated by a team of talented analysts who collect, process, and translate crime and emergency signals for the Citizen platform. The Citizen Crime Operations Center protects New York, the SF Bay Area, and will soon launch in several other cities, providing real-time safety alerts to our users.
We're inviting qualified applicants to apply for Citizen Bootcamp, an intensive training program for our Crime Operations Center.
Those who successfully complete the program will join the team as analysts. Please note that we run a 24/7 operation and new team members must have schedule flexibility to take on overnight and weekend shifts.
We need people who are resilient, resourceful, and mission-driven. We're a startup; things move fast. We need you to be adaptable, to think on your feet, and to be focused on the team's success, while constantly striving to improve your own abilities.
