Senior Software Developer - Mobile Technical Lead, Connected Devices

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. From our company's inception building the TASER device to a full suite of hardware and software solutions, we are focused on providing police agencies with the state-of-the-art devices and services they need to successfully serve and protect us. In the next few years, we're going to eliminate the burden of paperwork in policing, so officers can increase the time they spend building relationships and serving in their communities. We’ll put video at the heart of the police record so our justice system can get to the truth faster. And we won't stop innovating until the bullet is rendered obsolete.

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

Your Impact
Our existing mobile applications are an essential part of fulfilling our mission. Axon Capture acquires digital evidence (photos, videos, audio) and uploads to evidence.com for later processing. It's a big time saver. Axon View configures body-worn cameras, displays live streams, and lets officers review and tag collected videos. Axon Device Manager scans and identifies Axon equipment to allow for quick management and assignment. These applications continue to evolve and there is abundant opportunity for future apps.
