Everyone is screaming for more content, and you're the one they're screaming for. You have this natural ability to take big thoughts and distill them down to digestible social video content that is both wholly human and entirely strategic. You're able to switch tones of the content you create to evoke the response needed, from comedy, to action, to drama. Heck, you could even go spaghetti western if the situation arose. You ingest great content daily and you're always looking to explore new ways to redefine the social media space and how it approaches content creation. Simply put, you were born to make this stuff. If you just screamed, "Action!" after reading this paragraph, then we should talk.
Axon is looking for its next great storyteller for social media. We are ramping up our social media team in big ways and need someone to help lead a small team to create amazing video content for all of its social platforms. In this role, you will collaborate with senior leadership and a team of co-creators to develop content at the brand and product level that reinforces Axon's mission to protect life. We need someone who can speak the modern brand voice that coincides with our core audience as well as the general public. You must be obsessed with the ever evolving social media landscape, focusing on content trends and channel specifics all while making sure it aligns with our overall social strategy. We are looking for someone who lives and breathes the culture of cool, video games, trends, movies, advertising and understands how all of this can help us tell a better story that saves lives and, ultimately, will one day make the bullet obsolete.
WHO ARE WE?
Axon is the global leader in modernizing public safety, creating next generation de-escalation weapons, body cameras and records management software. We are committed to protecting the lives of officers on the field and making our communities safer through non-lethal weapon development. Our future is focused on breaking new ground in new categories including corrections, federal, fire, etc. Our mission is to Protect Life and we are constantly exploring ideas that bring this mission to light in the coolest ways possible.

An Insider's view of Axon

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Healthy work environment, tons of snacks and drinks, laid back attitudes with performance aspirations. I am astounded at the culture that has been grown here.

Beth

Sales

What does your typical day look like?

There isn't one person who isn't passionate about the work the company is doing. Whenever there might be a slow or grueling day/project, you quickly become reminded of the importance of your work. Leadership cares about the employees, and ensures a healthy/fun environment. Values are well defined and drive the culture.

Suraya

Program Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Co-workers care about your well being, and want to win together. Very strong company mission that makes it easy to buy into. Long established company that is entering a massive growth spurt. With massive change comes some uncertainty. But Axon has shown more proactive coaching and training than any company I've seen in my short tenure.

Cliff

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is bigger than just cameras or weapons. We're working every day to make the bullet obsolete. To make this a reality, we live and breathe six core values that serve as guiding principles: BE OBSESSED. AIM FAR. WIN RIGHT. OWN IT. JOIN FORCES. EXPECT CANDOR.

Rick Smith

CEO

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Fast-paced. Large company with a small company feel.
High decision velocities. Empowered, small, high-performance teams doing intellectually stimulating work with a purpose. It’s a great combination of doing good and doing well.
