Hello, we're Citizen

Citizen is a free app that keeps you and your loved ones safe. Using our unique technology, 911 alerts are made available to the public and accompanied by live stories, real-time updates, and user-generated content to provide you with the information you need to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Why Work with Us?

Finding a company with an exceptional mission is difficult. Finding a company with sophisticated and exciting technical problems is just as hard. Citizen is the rare place that can genuinely offer both. This fact, coupled with the excitement of what we are working on, makes Citizen a truly unique company.

An Insider's view of Citizen

What are some social events your company does?

In addition to free lunch, we host a dinner for our entire team each week. We play board games, play music, and have a relaxed good time each week.

How does the company support your career growth?

We are a young company growing rapidly. With new challenges to address daily, we all need to stretch in our roles to meet the growing needs of the business. We are not a place you will hear anyone say "that's not my job", but instead "how can I help"
