Our Team

In the Digital Evidence Management System team (DEMS), we are solving some of the hardest cloud challenges today. We manage multiple hundreds of petabytes of video and other digital evidence from hundreds of thousands of officers around the world.

As we bring our mission to the world, many customers need more than just a cloud solution. For multiple reasons they need Axon’s cloud capabilities running locally in their data centers. Axon Commander is a framework for running Axon DEMS in local or hybrid modes. This solution provides sovereign security while bringing the power of the Axon DEMS cloud. It hosts services that are specific to Commander and enables DEMS cloud services to be run locally. In essence, Commander provides both a local cloud of DEMS and local-specific services and integrations.

Your Impact

In this role, you architect and lead the design of the next generation of the Commander system. You work with the original Commander developers in extending the architecture to a pluggable, on-premise platform where more of the Axon DEMS cloud can be run locally. Leveraging container-native methodologies like Kubernetes, Istio, and more, you design and architect a solution that is both extensible and secure. This work will enable DEMS cloud to bring more of their solution to DEMS local and hybrid customers, giving them entire suites of features and products that they didn’t have access to before. This work will revolutionize digital evidence management for those customers, the public, and those that protect them.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
