Join Axon and be a Force for Good.

At Axon, we’re on a mission to Protect Life. We’re explorers, pursuing society’s most critical safety and justice issues with our ecosystem of devices and cloud software. Like our products, we work better together. We connect with candor and care, seeking out diverse perspectives from our customers, communities and each other.

Life at Axon is fast-paced, challenging and meaningful. Here, you’ll take ownership and drive real change. Constantly grow as you work hard for a mission that matters at a company where you matter.

Your Impact

Today, public safety officers spend up to 2/3 of their time on the job filling out paperwork. Not only is this tedious for officers, but the never-ending pile of paperwork reduces the amount of time they can spend out in the field, serving their communities. That’s why we’re focused on making Axon Records the easiest, most intuitive Records Management System on the market.

As a senior full-stack engineer on the team, you will be intimately involved in helping guide and grow the team as well as making decisions that will help shape the product. You love solving challenging problems in simple ways and understand how to take features from requirements and mocks to fully functioning systems. You love working with the latest open-source technologies and can leverage your design skills to make the right technical decisions on a system that needs to be bullet-proof.

You will be working closely with product managers, designers, and user researchers to ensure we are building the right solutions for our customers. You also enjoy mentoring other engineers and love to be a hands-on teacher helping to level up those around you.

Join us to work with a passionate, mission-driven group of folks whose purpose is to Protect Life.
