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 design standard for the tools our first responders rely on.

You’ll be working not only with award-winning designers, but also directly with some of the industry’s best product managers and engineers. The intern projects at Mark43 are real problems we need solved and have in the past included: a real-time map for dispatchers to keep track of first responders on the street, a dark mode color theme, and a command line feature to control our dispatch software. Get ready to be intellectually challenged and have your design skills stretched!
