WATCH OVER ME IS HIRING!
IF YOU'RE A MOBILE DEVELOPER WITH A LOVE FOR IMPACT, READ ON.
You will be working on a product that can help keep women safe.
If your wife, girlfriend, sister or mother were in danger - would you like to be notified? If you were in a new city, would you like to know which streets were dangerous so you could avoid them?
Watch Over Me is a personal safety app that allows users to be tracked via GPS and watched over when they need it the most. There are tons of personal safety apps and services in the App Store and out of it. But they always circle around the same concept:
- Be tracked all the time, or
- Hit a panic button to call for help
Watch Over Me believes that the modern woman does not want to be tracked all the time, and it is physically impossible to hit a panic button when you are trying to escape. Based on that philosophy, we have designed a product that:
- Tracks women only when they want to be tracked
- Lets women know when they need to turn the app on
- Notifies women when they have entered a high crime area
Work with people who are passionate and invested in helping women feel safer
