Director of Technical Program Management - Vietnam

Our mission is to protect life.
We’re out to make the world a safer place by solving big problems and taking on the public safety challenges of our time. In the next 10 years, we’ll triple the amount of time officers can spend serving their communities. In the next 20, we’ll eliminate paperwork in policing so that officers can focus on what matters. And in the next 50 years, we’ll make the bullet obsolete.

It’s a big mission, but it’s one we’ll pursue relentlessly every single day. 

Our Axon Vietnam team in Ho Chi Minh City is growing at a rapid pace. Our research and engineering teams are building new capabilities that will reduce paperwork, increase transparency with the public, evaluate organizational performance, and give officers access to quick insights even before they leave their patrol car.
