Our mission is to protect life.

We’re out to make the world a safer place by solving big problems and taking on the public safety challenges of our time. From our company's inception building the TASER device to a full suite of hardware and software solutions, we are focused on providing police agencies with state-of-the-art devices and services they need to successfully serve and protect us. In the next few years, we're going to eliminate the burden of paperwork in policing, so officers can increase the time they spend building relationships and serving in their communities. We’ll put video at the heart of police records so our justice system can get to the truth faster. And we won't stop innovating until the bullet is rendered obsolete.

It’s a big mission, but it’s one we’ll pursue relentlessly every single day.

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.
