Company Overview

Motorola Solutions is there for our customers when everything is on the line. In extreme moments — when a hurricane lands or when a fire breaks out. And in everyday moments — when a package arrives just in time for the holiday or when a child doesn’t miss the school bus home.

We unify voice, data, video and analytics in one integrated ecosystem to enable individuals, businesses and communities to work together in more powerful ways. To help people make better decisions, act confidently and be their best in the moments that matter. Bring your passion, potential and talents to Motorola Solutions and connect with a career that matters.

Department OverviewAt Motorola Solutions we are helping solve some of the biggest challenges facing public safety organizations today. The Data and Common Services team builds software solutions that enable other products in the Command Central suite to meet their customers needs. Our goals are to help public safety professionals easily store and retrieve all the information they need to be able to do their jobs safely and successfully. We work with cutting edge AI in video, audio and analytics combined with advanced modern search technologies to deliver on our mission.
Job Description

Common Query is a cloud-based microservice application, built to enable public safety & enterprise customers to search the critical data needed to save lives. We work alongside application teams to design and build application interfaces to search for the data they need and provide them with the most up to date information to allow our customers to make critical operational decisions. Our application must scale and provide low latency to our customers as seconds matter. At the same time, the product enables client applications to manage multiple, disparate query application interfaces with a unified application interface. The Common Query team works with the State Query application which enables customers to search for information stored in State Databases, like warrants and criminal justice information.

Our microservices are built on top of Kubernetes & Azure Cloud. Applications must scale horizontally as our customers' needs expand and our capabilities increase. Our Stack is mostly C# & Angular, with additional technologies such as: Azure Service Bus, Azure Cosmos Document Database.
