Staff Software Engineer, Axon Records

    • Seattle, WA
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
We are building Axon Records, a brand new cloud-based web application that will eliminate tedious paperwork, save time, save lives, and make the job of a police officer more fulfilling. Over time, Axon Records will evolve into a family of law enforcement tools designed to make our communities safer.

Who we are looking for
Our team is growing and we are looking for an experienced software architect that will create a technical vision for our system, plan and coordinate its evolution over months and years, write great code, and guide multiple teams along the way.

Our ideal candidate has broad knowledge of public cloud infrastructure like Azure or AWS, service-oriented systems, data stores and databases, frontend technologies and API protocols, machine learning and AI, security and operations - but also has deep, hands-on experience with at least one of those areas.
