About Mark43

Mark43 is a company developing public safety software. It offers a cloud platform that comprises computer-aided and records management systems as well as data analytics and intelligence tools. The platform enables users to collect, manage, analyze, and share information.

Job Description

Mark43’s mission is to empower communities and their governments with new technologies that improve the safety and quality of life for all. We build powerful, scalable, and elegant software that sets a new standard for law enforcement tools and technology. Our users are diverse, and we are therefore committed to embracing diversity of thought and experience within our team.

We're seeking an experienced and dependable front end web engineer who will be responsible for guiding development of the next generation of law enforcement software. Our applications face unique challenges of scale and dynamic complexity. We are leveraging technologies like React and Redux to tackle these enterprise challenges not found in the consumer web world as we build our products. Although we enjoy exploring new technologies, we are committed to maintaining a beautiful, sustainable javascript code base, which we actually can refactor. At Mark43 you'll take a leadership role on our front end team; you'll be trusted with making architectural decisions and manage project life cycles while simultaneously contributing praiseworthy code. You will also be expected to take part in our interview process and help mentor junior engineers.


What you can expect to work on:

  • Using popular technologies including but not limited to: Electron, TypeScript, RxJS, React, Redux
  • Continuously improving your leadership and coding skills while working alongside a talented and high performing engineering team
  • Collaborating with design and product teams to understand and document feature requirements
  • Writing clear, concise technical documentation that your teammates will trust
  • Being responsible for leading discussions on use cases for new technologies and contributing to a constant dialogue on ways to improve our codebase and engineering practices
  • Nurturing an engineering culture that cares deeply about the quality of the code we write, while still working quickly to bring our technology to as many departments as possible


What we expect from you:

  • 5+ years of industry experience, preferably building rich web applications using high performance javascript
  • Extensive knowledge of javascript and its many frameworks, React, HTML, CSS, and an interest in testing out new FE technologies
  • Extensive knowledge of web architecture concepts including HTTP and REST
  • Experience supporting continuous integration and automated testing
  • Familiarity with cross browser compatibility
  • Experience leading technical discussions and providing rationale for your decisions
  • Commitment to developing cooperative and collaborative working relationships with your teammates
  • Leaning in to contribute to the company outside your role - our engineers have written blog posts, attended events, and helped grow our team
  • A positive attitude and generous spirit towards mentoring younger engineers and answering technical questions


What you can expect from us:

  • Constant collaboration with numerous Mark43 teams, including Engineering, Technical Services, and Product
  • Building mission critical and socially responsible software to enable first responders to better serve their communities
  • A team that respects and embraces your ideas and expertise
  • Coworkers that are motivated by pursuing excellence, rather than the prospect of personal gain
  • A workplace dedicated to supporting and bettering public safety and government agencies
