RMS - Engineering Manager

Come Join Us
Come work in an exciting environment in which you’ll use your passion, experience, and strong analytical skills to help bring new technologies to public safety and leave a positive impact on the world. We cultivate an environment that favors agility, initiative, and creative thinking. Our mission is to protect life, making the world a safer place through smart devices and software services. We genuinely love what we do and are looking for others who share this passion.

Are you interested in leading a team of mission-driven engineers to solve a problem that actually makes the world better?

We're building a brand new product, from the ground up, that will give police officers the time, tools, and insights to make our communities safer. We're looking for a talented engineering manager to help us bring this vision to life. You will be invigorated by the opportunity to be an early member of the team, and enjoy building a solid foundation for a very visionary product. Should you join the team, you will be surrounded by like minded people who are passionate about our mission to protect life. We are allergic to red tape, meaningless process, crufty code, and jerks.

What else makes RMS unusual?
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 person on the team spends personal time with law enforcement officers and agencies. Your first police ride-along will be awesome!

As a technical leader on the team you will

  • Design, build, and operate a complex cloud-based system
  • Help the team develop minimum viable process to enable shipping and iterating quickly
  • Communicate effectively and partner with other teams
  • Be willing to get hands-on when necessary
  • Excel at making the people around you excel too

Our product is still super early, but here’s what we’re working with so far:

  • Backend – Golang. No previous experience needed, but we’re strongly biased towards easy to understand, clean code.
  • Frontend – React (and opportunity to do React Native, and Electron apps in the future)
  • Data – Several. Right now, we’re prototyping different ways to handle the intrinsically graph oriented nature of the relationships between entities (people, crimes, vehicles, property, locations, etc).
  • Orchestration, Deployments, Operations – TBD, but gravitating towards Kubernetes, Docker, Vitess.io


  • 7+ years professional software development experience
  • 3+ years as a people manager or technical lead.
  • Experience working on new products
  • Experience designing and delivering high-availability, scalable cloud software
  • Proven ability for coaching and mentoring
  • Demonstrated success in current career
  • Passionate about how technology helps people in their daily lives
