Your Impact
As the Senior Data Engineer in the Business Intelligence team, you will be considered a technical leader, playing an integral role in democratizing data and insights across Axon. You will be responsible for integrating, transforming, and consolidating data from various systems-of-record into foundational data structures that are optimized for reporting and analytics. You will take our team to a new level in how we store, manage, monitor, and secure data using the full stack of cloud-based data services.
You will think big and long-term, while remaining agile and flexible. Your high standards and industry experience will help our team continue to raise the bar for BI, and your helpful and "can do" attitude will make others want to partner closely with you.

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

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.
