Posted on: June 12, 2021

Job Description:

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.

Location: Seattle, WA

Our Team

In Digital Evidence Management System team (DEMS), we are solving some of the hardest cloud challenges today. We manage 100+ petabytes of video and other digital evidence from hundreds of thousands of officers around the world.

In today's world, few cloud based systems are truly isolated from interaction with other systems or services. Axon's advantage is the ease with which customers can deploy custom solutions and integrate Axon services with other systems they have in place to meet their core needs. Our goal is to expand Axon's existing platform APIs, enabling richer evidence storage, access and management capabilities for our customers through programmatic API access. We are reimagining what data partnerships and API access means for our customers, and how we can help them address their challenges more rapidly, more efficiently, and at a larger scale than ever before.

Your Impact

In this role, you will be building a new team within Axon's software engineering organization. Currently the team exists but is not fully staffed and has open headcount for you to fill out the team.

As an engineering leader, you will drive the technical vision for your team, guiding them on architectural decisions and setting a high bar for standards of excellence. You will be joining forces with product management and product design to understand the customer outcomes that need to be achieved. You will be empowered to build a high-performing engineering team that is customer-obsessed and encompasses a strong engineering culture. You will collaborate with the engineering director and other engineering managers on strategic and tactical planning. If you are successful, you will be on the path to building a differentiating product that will disrupt our industry.

Your Day-to-Day

  • Driving the execution of your team by leading planning, prioritization, stand-ups, and team retro meetings
  • Leading the technical direction of the team through architectural discussions and code reviews
  • Working with product managers and 3rd party partners to build a disruptive API layer for customer data access
  • Join forces with recruiting to hire a top-notch engineering team
  • Managing engineers and their careers with 1:1s and performance reviews

Basic Qualifications

We would love to talk to you if you have:

  • 6+ years professional software development experience
  • 2+ years of experience leading an engineering team, ideally one you have built yourself
  • Experience designing and delivering high-availability, scalable cloud-based systems
  • Deep experience in multiple, managed languages such as Java, Scala, Go, C#, or similar

Preferred Qualifications

  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or related field
  • Are well versed in API design, API gateways and developer programs
  • You follow the latest in software engineering and open source technologies, and can intuit the fine line between promising new practice and overhyped fad
  • Able to work side by side with product managers and other engineers to create a technical backlog to build product experiences that customers love

Compensation and Benefits:

  • Competitive salary and 401K with employer match
  • Discretionary paid time off
  • Robust parental leave policy
  • An award-winning office/working environment
