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 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 police records 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

As a Software Engineer on the Axon Air team, you’ll be working on core platform features that will power Axon Air. Your day-to-day responsibilities will include building core backend services, delivering new features to support integration with our drone partners, and collaborating with the platform team to deliver new authentication capabilities to support our growing ecosystem of users and hardware devices.

The ideal candidate for this role is someone who is good at executing on large projects, and isn't afraid to make big changes to fundamental aspects of our code. You should have basic knowledge of software design and micro-service architecture. As you will be collaborating with the platform team to deliver new capabilities that support not just Axon Air, but also other systems, strong communication and documentation skills are a must to be able to explain what changes you're making and why and help other teams to adopt your systems.

The Axon Air team is bringing together the right hardware, software, training, and ethical guidelines to accelerate the adoption of unmanned aerial systems and autonomous devices across law enforcement and public safety. These systems will enable search and rescue missions, tactical operations, accident scene reconstruction, and first response, all of which have the real ability to save lives.
