Virtual Reality & Tech Contract Recruiter (Virtual)

  • United States

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 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 police records 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.

Location: Remote U.S.

If you are unfamiliar with Axon, we are a company focused on designing public safety software. Public safety agencies are at the advent of a data revolution, similar to what healthcare organizations went through over the past two decades—and the stakes couldn’t be higher, especially given the social unrest within the US. Helping any form of emergency personnel better understand data, interpret the impact of their work, and understand and action their data in un-biased ways is critical to our society.

Our mission is to help create transparency in our community, and the impact and relevancy of that work is rooted in all that we do here at Axon.
