Leadership Development Program - Business Associate (2020)

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 the 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 the police record 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. 


Axon at its core is not your traditional "corporation" but more of a start-up. We're changing the way law enforcement uses technology today. Our success depends on continually developing and improving our technologies and products. That's where you come in, the team is looking for top-notch leaders to drive projects and help us aim far into the future. You'll be given challenging opportunities to solve problems and be at the forefront of AXON's success and growth.

The Leadership Development Program (2-year rotational commitment) is designed to train and develop emerging leaders quickly so that leaders can do what they do best-drive innovation! We believe it is critical that leaders have a breadth of understanding of the entire business process. We want raw talent who will roll their sleeves up for the big challenges; who can influence others and collaborate to make our business stronger and support us in our mission to protect life. As a Business Associate, before settling into your full-time role, you will have the opportunity to gain exposure to departments across the organization, including Marketing, Sales, Operations, Product Management, Supply Chain, Recruiting, Consumer Products, and other related areas. Each rotation will be tailored to your skills and interest to ensure optimal role to personnel fit. 

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. The Program is a premier opportunity not only to prepare for a rewarding and challenging career, but also to make a significant contribution to the organization and to our customers worldwide.
