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.

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.

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.
