Senior Frontend Software Engineer

Axon

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
As a Senior software engineer on the Frontend Core team, you'll be responsible for building and maintaining the core frontend tools and framework used by every product team at Axon. Your day-to-day responsibilities will include defining reusable React components, defining our organization's standards and best practices, optimizing our build and test tools to maximize efficiency, and refactoring our products to improve overall quality and user experience. You will also have the opportunity to contribute to open source tools and libraries.

The ideal candidate for this role is someone who is good at executing on large projects, and isn't afraid to make big changes to fundamental aspects of our code. You should have a good sense of design and a strong drive to do right by our customers. As a senior engineer, you'll be expected to participate in design reviews and provide guidance for more junior team members in the form of PR reviews and general mentorship. You'll have the opportunity to make changes that benefit our customers and all other frontend engineers, so it's important to be able to explain what changes you're making and why, to make it easier for the other teams to understand.
