Axon is Looking for a Quality Assurance Engineer

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.
Your Impact
Today, police agencies are purchasing drones to support with use cases like search and rescue, tactical operations, accident scene reconstruction and first responder capabilities, but they are doing so by cobbling together a set of tools that were built for other industries such as construction or agriculture. Axon Air looks to solve that by building a purpose built set of tools specifically for public safety, with a view towards minimizing the need for a specially trained pilot to operate a drone so it can be made available throughout an agency while letting officers focus on their job of protecting our communities.
As a Quality Assurance Engineer on the Axon Air team, it will be your job to ensure that the tools we build meet the high quality bar our customers expect and “just work.” Drone hardware is complex and each device has unique characteristics so our software must be robust and handle these differences without impact on the end user. Ultimately, you will own the testing practices and frameworks that get us there. This isn’t just a sit-at-your desk job, we expect you to take our product out into the real world and fly the drones using our software.
We’re a small team with a start-up mentality so we need someone who is flexible and willing to jump in where needed to help us make Axon Air a success.
