Engineering Development Program (Electrical Engineer)

Axon at its core is not a traditional engineering company but more of a start-up. We’re changing the way law enforcement uses technology today and our success depends on the top-notch engineers continually developing and improving our technologies and products. That’s where you come in. At Axon, you will take design and implement new features at the forefront of the company’s success and growth.

The Engineering Development Program is designed to train and develop new engineers so that they can do what they do best - build things. We believe it is critical that engineers have a breadth of understanding of the entire engineering process, from initial conception to product launch. As a Electrical Engineer, you’ll have the opportunity to cross-train in a variety of software tools and products. You will gain exposure in the following departments: R&D, Manufacturing/Operations, Quality Assurance, and related departments before settling into your final role. Each rotation will be tailored to your area of expertise to ensure optimal role to personnel fit.

Your goals in life include more than just landing a high-paying job. You do more because it matters. You’ll aim a little higher and reach a little further. And when it comes to looking for that next opportunity, you want to do work that matters.
