Delta Defense – Why Work With Us?


Professional Rendering of New USCCA Headquarters

Are you looking for an innovative, challenging and exciting place to call home during your work week? We understand how draining the typical, mundane nine-to-five can be...that's exactly why we strive to be anything but typical...  Delta Defense is the rapidly-growing, fast-paced company that provides marketing, operations and customer care for the USCCA. 

The USCCA provides self-defense education, training and legal protection to responsible gun owners.  

In 2003, Tonnie Schmidt and Tim Schmidt founded this organization in hopes to create and provide reliable resources to responsible citizens who take their safety into their own hands. The type of people who will do ANYTHING to protect those they love... and then Tonnie and Tim found a group of people who believe in that same mission. Collectively, we've built a fun, unstoppable, and intensly hard-working team. 

Does that sound like something you want to be a part of? (I mean, come on... who wouldn't?!) 

You should apply if: 

  • You want to be a part of something BIG...
  • You want to be excited to get out of bed and go to work every day...
  • You like to grow and be challenged to become a better person...
  • You're energized by always learning new things...
  • You're looking for a crazy-fun family of like-minded people to belong to...

Who is Delta Defense NOT for? People who just want to collect a paycheck. People who don't care about making a difference. People who just want to blend into the scenery.  People who don't like dogs--ok, just kidding (kinda.) 

So, are you up for it? Are you up for saving lives, working hard and having fun along the way? Then, come join our team! 

 

We’re on a mission to change the way society thinks about responsibly armed Americans.
  • Believe In Our Mission: Educate 10,000,000 Gun Owners. Protect 1,000,000 USCCA Members. Stop 20,000 Crimes. Save 1,000 Lives.
  • Live The 5 H's: We are Honest, Humble, Happy, Hungry and Healthy.
  • Roll Sh*t Uphill: If we have a problem, we MUST roll it uphill to a manager. No negative sideways or downstream talk.
  • Grow Or Die: We believe that people and businesses are either growing or regressing. Growth results from embracing change.
  • Get Sh*t Done, Because The Fast Eat The Slow: We execute rapidly, systematically, decisively and fearlessly. We hold each other responsible to achieve our goals
Tim's Story - Schmidt Family

The story of Delta Defense and the USCCA–is similar to the story of many Americans. In July 2003, I had become a father for the first time and the reality of being responsible for a tiny, fragile human being hit me like a ton of bricks. It was then I set out on my 'self-defense journey.'

As an engineer, I'm no stranger to research and diving into the details, so that's exactly where I started. The troubling thing was I could only find minimal resources on defending myself or my family. I trained in taekwondo, I bought a handgun (that's a whole story for another time...) but I felt like I lacked the knowledge and confidence to actually protect my wife and newborn son if, God-forbid, I ever had to. 

What struck me most is that in no way did I feel like I could be the only one who wanted–or needed–this important information, skill and know-how. With the driven, entrepreneurial spirit I inherited from my Dad, I sought out to create that resource myself. And that's when Concealed Carry Magazine was born at Tonnie's and my kitchen table... 

Though it took time, money and A LOT of energy (and some humbling failure in the beginning,) the magazine finally took off and is now read by over 300,000 Americans! 

After the inception of the magazine, the USCCA seemed like the next logical step! And soon enough, thousands of subscribers were active in our community through our weekly newsletter, online forum, and even the early days of social media. 

But 2011 is when things got really exciting...USCCA introduced a program for its members called Self-Defense SHIELD. It provides legal and financial protection to all members if they ever have to lawfully defend themselves or their families with a firearm. 

Today, hundreds of thousands of Americans trust their USCCA memberships, and it's most humbling to be able to say we have their backs. It's truly an honor to defend these hard-working, responsible patriots. 

Now, obviously, there's much more to the story (you can read it all in my book, Guns, Freedom And The American Dream.) Not all business models are flawless and none truly take off over night, but looking back, it almost feels that way. 

And I know Tonnie and I couldn't have done any of it without the help from our family and my parents (especially my Dad and his limitless wisdom which has always guided many of my decisions,) and the incredible community of West Bend (where my family and the USCCA call home.)

And of course, the one thing that inspires me most: the Delta Defense team. The way they believe in the same mission I do–a mission that seemed inconceivable all those years ago–it motivates me to be a better person and strive to be a stronger leader...a leader they all deserve. I truly love this team and I'm so honored to work beside them every day. 

I hope the story of the USCCA is inspiring to you, and that if you're interested in joining our team, you apply today. I promise, you won't be disappointed... ;-)

Take care and stay safe,

Tim Schmidt

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Delta Defense (Portsmouth, VA) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR, standard interviews questions. Gave a great overview of company Culture and Mission. Gave a positive impression of the type of people they want to hire. I am glad to see they are not just looking for a body to fill a role, they are looking for the right fit for the company and the position.
