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.

This is a rare opportunity to have your work make a huge impact on public safety and drive positive changes in society through technology. You will be part of a tight knit, interdisciplinary design team defining how we design products at Axon. You'll also be exposed to all aspects of the design process and the business; including product, marketing and branding. We want you to be curious, passionate, detailed, team oriented, and someone who welcomes critique. You want to have big impact on products and the people who use them.

Our Scottsdale-based Software team is made up of a plethora of talent. Whether you have experience in product or industrial design you'll have the opportunity to cross-train in a variety of design programs. Our team is versatile and determined, no matter the project or activity. 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. Where engineers focus on building products, architecture and performance, designers focus on the bigger picture of the types of problems we're trying to solve!

We cultivate an environment that favors agility, initiative, and creative thinking. We genuinely enjoy what we do and are looking for others who share this passion.

We recognize the hard work and responsibility of all Axon employees, and try to give back by focusing on employee happiness and generous benefits!
