Job Description:

Were 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. Well 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.

Its a big mission, but its one well pursue relentlessly every single day. Location Seattle, WA Our Product Officers can spend up to a third of their shift staring at a computer screen, populating boxes and filling out forms. While essential, there is a direct trade-off when an officer is tied up on a computer, they aren't actively patrolling or engaging with their communities.

Axon Records is our state-of-the-art records management system. Axon Records re-imagines the way officers write reports in the field to how detectives help prosecute crime. Police reports come to life with video at the heart of the record to tell the full story, and applying AI to data can support new strategies for crime solving and prevention.
