Engineering Development Program-EE (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.

Axon at its core is an engineering company that has a start-up feel to it. We're changing the way law enforcement uses technology today. Our success depends on continually developing and improving our technologies and products. You will build new and better products that will keep both our law enforcement officers and citizens safe! That's where you come in, the team is looking for top-notch engineers to design and implement new features. You will take on new challenges and be on the forefront of building amazing products.

The Program is designed to train and develop new engineers quickly so that engineers can do what they do best- build things! Whether you're a Mechanical Engineer, Electrical Engineer, Industrial Engineer, or Manufacturing Engineer you'll have the opportunity to cross-train in a variety of software tools and products. You'll aim a little higher and reach a little further. Your goals in life include more than just landing a great paying job. You do more because it matters. And when it comes to looking for that next opportunity, you want to do work that matters.

At Axon we believe it's critical that engineers have a breadth of understanding of the entire engineering process from initial conception to product launch. Our EDP's gain exposure in the following departments: R&D,Manufacturing/Operations, Quality Assurance, and related departments before settling into their final role. Each rotation is tailored to the engineer's area of engineering expertise to ensure optimal role to personnel fit.
