Software Engineering – Axon Air /
Full Time
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 believe that drone technology has the potential to revolutionize public safety and create better outcomes for communities and agencies alike. At Axon Air, we are bringing together the right hardware, software, training, and ethical guidelines to accelerate the adoption and effectiveness of this technology across law enforcement and public safety.

Today, a small but rapidly growing number of agencies are using drones to support search and rescue missions, tactical operations, accident scene reconstruction, and first response. These agencies are cobbling together tools that were built for other industries such as construction or agriculture that don’t meet the needs of a public safety agency. We’re solving that problem with purpose built solutions for law enforcement today with an eye on shaping the use of drone technology in the future.

We’re a small team with a start-up mentality so we need someone who is flexible and willing to jump in where needed to help us make Axon Air a success. As a Software Engineer on a small team, you will have the ability to work across multiple technology stacks to bring end to end features to our customers. And you get to play with some cool, cutting edge toys while you do it.
