SoSafe: Career opportunities -

Security app development with a smart button at Apiko Software

Briefly about SoSafe

While millions of women share their stories of being insecure in the city under the hashtag #textmewhenyougethome, the founders of SoSafe, haven’t found anything helpful on the market, have undertaken their own unique project - security app development with a smart button Flic.

As the number of crimes only increases, the business owners from Sweden have decided to bring to life a new digital product that would be able to improve the situation with personal security in their country.

The solution they came up with is a portable emergency button that gets connected to the SoSafe security app via bluetooth. It greatly simplifies the process of calling the security services company by automatically transmitting the necessary information such as GPS coordinates and voice signal from the crime scene.

What Apiko employees say about working on SoSafe

The SoSafe project creates extensive opportunities for its team members to be a part of a productive environment that strives for innovation and growth.

Nataliia Kubai

QA engineer

It feels amazing to be a part of the SoSafe team. Every team member feels valued and you leave work every day feeling happy. Everyone is very helpful and the environment is fun and productive.

Max Romanyuk

Project manager

SoSafe is special because on this project you feel part of something big - your advice is listened to, your ideas are discussed on a par with others.
When motivation suddenly drops, I involuntarily remember the mission of the project, which is designed to save people's lives, the feedback of people who have already used the application and the button - motivation soars to the heavens.

SoSafe project story

The founders behind the SoSafe project also started a successful sales company. Part of the business before the Covid-19 pandemic was to go from door to door helping telecom companies find new customers. It was during one of such visits that a female seller was abused.

“That event made us start looking for solutions to create a safer work environment for our employees. When we did not find anything on the market that was good enough, we started working on our own product,” says Shivan Dana, a co-founder of SoSafe.

In 2020, the founders of SoSafe contacted Apiko with the goal of bringing their exceptional product idea to life. The security solution we have been working on since incorporates a Flic smart button, a native app for iOS and Android, and an admin web panel.

Though the founders of SoSafe understand that they can’t solve the whole societal problem of insecurity, they believe that this digital safety product can at least be a small part of a solution.

SoSafe: How does the security alarm button app work?

The security product Apiko team has been working on consists of such elements: an iOS and Android mobile app, a portable panic button from the Swedish startup company - Flic, and an admin web system.

Here is the functionality we have developed. The security alert app together with the Flic smart button works like this:

  • When a person feels threatened or gets attacked, he/she presses the button. We set up the Flic smart button to work with the app via Bluetooth and trigger the app’s functionality.
  • By integrating Twilio Conference Call API, our team enabled phone calls transmitting when the button gets pushed. The call goes directly to the alarm center as well as to the relatives, selected by the user, and GPS coordinates are sent out.
  • The phone’s microphone is switched on and it starts transmitting everything that’s going on at the scene. At the same time, a security car leaves to reach the location.
  • The alarm can’t be turned off by a perpetrator. To do so, you must enter a code.
  • Not only does the app help security to get to the scene as quickly as possible, it also records and saves in the cloud all the evidence of abuse or harassment. Later this data may be useful in court.
