Business Development Internship (2018)

Come Join Us
Come work in an exciting environment in which you’ll use your passion, experience, and strong analytical skills to help bring new technologies to public safety and leave a positive impact on the world. We cultivate an environment that favors agility, initiative, and creative thinking. Our mission is to protect life, making the world a safer place through smart devices and software services. We genuinely love what we do and are looking for others who share this passion.

We're an internal startup taking on a major challenge in law enforcement technology. We need sharp minds who bring a combination of the best of ground breaking university knowledge and a real passion for technology that impacts society. We're working on a truly rare problem- how to bring the best in technology to officers. We want them to get from behind their computers and onto the streets doing what they do best, protecting the innocent and prosecuting the guilty!

You'll learn how to lead acquisitions of other companies, engage in strategic alliances and partnerships that bring significant additional value to our customers. You'll tap into how the company supports the scaling of the business into international markets. You'll work with the product team on roadmap development, portfolio optimization, product strategy support, product pricing, and leading the development the Company's long-term corporate strategy. Whatever your goals are, you'll have the freedom to work on projects you're passionate about, and the support of people who will challenge you in new ways.

We love having fun, like trawling the local Google and Tableau offices, and building exciting things, but we're serious about the impact we have. We recognize the hard work and responsibility of all Axon employees, and try to give back by focusing on employee happiness and generous benefits!
