Your impact

You are a Staff Software Software Engineer with experience building large-scale software applications. You will collaborate with other staff and senior engineers to shape and drive the technical direction for the organization and products. Your strong system design skills will aid you in taking a holistic approach to ensuring our products are bulletproof and fault-tolerant, while meeting demanding interactivity and responsiveness requirements. Your customer-obsession leads you to join forces with product and design to imagine and deliver innovative solutions to key customer problems.

Working closely with senior engineers across teams to review their designs and steer them toward more reliable and sustainable outcomes makes you a force multiplier for your team and the teams around you. You are a great collaborator and coach, and will mentor our next set of engineering leaders. You foster a friendly, open, inward-looking culture that encourages everyone to speak their mind and avoid red tape, unnecessary rituals, bureaucracy and politics. You embody our company value of Join Forces, and have zero tolerance for people not willing to work as a team.

As a senior technical contributor, you have a passion for technology, and keep abreast of the latest trends, frameworks, and tools. As a technical leader, you advise our director of engineering on technical strategy for the org, while balancing our business and engineering priorities to help determine the right long-term initiatives and investments.

Come work in an exciting environment where you use your passion, experience, and analytical skills to help bring new solutions to public safety, and leave a positive impact on the world!
