Senior Software Engineer, Axon Records

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

Imagine year 2030. Advanced technology has transformed law enforcement, dramatically improving the quality and safety of our lives. Men and women in uniform rely on smart tools that collect and process information in real time. AI lets detectives investigate and prevent crimes by finding patterns in the cloud of interconnected data. Accurate and detailed reporting maintains transparency and trust between communities and the police.

Would you love to shape this future and join a team that is building it right now?

Our Team
We believe that only happy teams take good care of their customers, so we foster a friendly, open, introspective team culture that encourages everyone to speak their mind and deliberately avoids red tape, unnecessary rituals, politics, and jerks.
We self-organize into small crews, each working on a short project and following its own development process. We reserve 2 days per week for focused work without meetings, and emphasize planning to keep our work-life balance healthy and sustainable.

We believe we can only succeed if we deeply understand our customers and get to know them personally. We spend time with law enforcement officers to learn about their needs, watch their experience and see the real impact of our work.
