We’re on a mission to protect life 🌎

Our mission to protect life began when our founder and CEO, Rick Smith, lost two friends to gun violence. This moment catapulted his vision of using technology to make the bullet obsolete. In the past 30 years, Axon has revolutionized public safety, and today we’re building technology to change the world, pursuing society’s most formidable safety and justice issues with our ecosystem of devices and cloud software.


This is our moonshot 🚀

Gun-related deaths between police and the public have risen steadily for at least the past six years. In 2021 in the U.S., 1,118 people — 1,054 civilians and 64 officers — lost their lives in gun-related incidents between police and the public, according to leading data sources. In response, Axon is rallying partners around a “moonshot” goal to cut gun-related deaths between police and the public by 50% in 10 years.


Our Values 🦾

Our vision is bigger than just cameras or weapons. Axon’s core culture is not one of your traditional “corporation” but more of a start-up. Our success depends on collaborating to develop and improve our technologies. Our team is inclusive, humble, and determined, no matter the project or activity. Whatever your goals are, you’ll have the freedom to work on projects you care about and the support of people who will challenge you in new ways.


Walk with the customer as you transform their world. We never want to develop or sell something that our customers don’t want or need. We’re obsessed with creating products that solve real problems and add value. If it doesn’t benefit our customers and our communities, then we rethink what we’re doing.


Think big with a long-term view. We want to reinvent the world to be a safer, better place. We’ve failed spectacularly a few times, but that’s what you get when you aim for the stars. That’s our final destination.


Win with integrity. We are fiercely competitive and have an unquenchable thirst to win, but we don’t think winning and doing the right thing are mutually exclusive. Our challenge is to make them synonymous — and never compromise our integrity.


Commit, take action, and deliver. We empower individuals to step up and take initiative. Be an owner and see things through to completion. That’s the only way we’ve been able to succeed as a company, and it’s the only way we will continue to grow.


Act as one global team. Creating the future is a team sport. When a company scales globally in 40 different markets with multiple technology stacks ranging from wearables and cloud to electronic weapons, you need teamwork. We’re one global team committed to an audacious vision.


Deliver with respect. Assume positive intent. Candor gets critical issues elevated and the truth on the table — it gets us to the right answer faster. How can we be the best version of ourselves and the best company we can be if we can’t offer and be given critical feedback?
