Axon Careers & Company Culture

What does a good day at work feel like to you? At Axon, we wake up every day with a sense of purpose, to use our tech skills to make the world a better place.

More than a company that manufactures code for the latest trend, we create technology that makes the world safer by empowering those who keep it safe. From cloud-based body cameras to real-time digital information via connected apps, AI, and IOT, our hands are deep in the architecture of everything we create. Some may call us tech nerds. We prefer innovation enthusiasts. Axon promotes individualism and an entrepreneurial spirit in approaching our work, knowing that sometimes we’re at our best when we’re given the ball to run with it. Yet, we all work together as one team by supporting each other and building incredible things when we collaborate. We also know that a good day at work is when your company cares about your personal life as they do your work life.

In a world of technological innovation, Axon promotes a culture of humanism. We understand that we are only part of what is important to you. As we strive for truth, honesty, and safety through technology, we believe that is only possible through transparency. At Axon, we value that a good day is coming home with a deep sense of accomplishment as we do our part to contribute to the greater good. Our workplace is one that embraces diversity, embraces innovation and promotes transparency throughout all levels in the organization. We conduct Axon Connect sessions, wherein senior leaders in the company answer anonymously submitted questions about the current and future state of Axon. We also have a Diversity & Inclusion Committee that works together to promote events and programs that encourage sensitivity, openness and safety among employees.
