Your Impact
Have you ever wondered if you can write code to save lives? At Axon our mission is to protect life. We are passionate about bringing state of the art technology to law enforcement so officers can focus on helping their communities instead of fighting with bad software.

As the Client Engineering Manager for Connected Devices you will help us build world-class mobile and client applications as well as world-class teams. We believe in hiring only the best and we need you to make that a reality. Hiring the best employees doesn't just mean hiring the most senior people, it also means hiring people with great potential. As the manager, you will take that potential and make it a reality.

You will oversee desktop and mobile application teams, managing full development lifecycle – analysis, design, development, testing and deployment. You will ensure quality, consistency, and reliability across multiple products and platforms that are used by law enforcement professionals across the world.

Mobile Applications - we have applications that communicate directly with our Body Cameras and other devices. These are focused on creating a simple workflow for officers to use throughout their shifts. We also have applications for creating new evidence - photos, videos, and witness statements, all of which require a focus on security and audit-ability while maintaining ease of use. All of our applications are built natively, per-platform.

Desktop Applications - From laptops in police cars to touch panels for interviews we build a variety of desktop applications that integrate with our hardware products - Axon Fleet in-car cameras, interview cameras, body cameras, electrical weapons and more.

Are you ready to help up make a difference?
We believe in pushing autonomy as deeply as possible into the team. A deep understanding of our customers is critical to achieve this autonomy and move quickly. As a result, every engineer on the team spends personal time with law enforcement officers and agencies. Your first police ride-along will be awesome!
