At TASER we make communities safer with innovative public safety technologies that protect life and truth. Founded in 1993, TASER first transformed law enforcement with our electrical weapons. Today, we continue to define smarter policing with our growing suite of technology solutions.
Conducted Electrical Weapons: Our electrical weapons have become one of law enforcement's most trusted tools. That's because they're developed with abundant customer input, so we build features and functions that will help people stay safe. Our Smart Weapons are the most-researched devices we've ever produced, with features like charge metering and warning arcs (X2 only) that came straight from the costumers.
Body Worn Cameras: Los Angeles. Cleveland. Charlotte-Mecklenburg. Fort Worth. 95% of major agencies deploying body-worn cameras have chosen Axon to help them address some of the country's most pressing problems. Several thousand small and mid-size agencies have embraced our platform as well. These are critical times in law enforcement, and there is no one who takes that more seriously than us. We've learned the lessons from having deployed over 110,000 body-worn cameras and TASER CAMs, and will continue to tackle the toughest technology challenges.
Data Evidence Management: Whether collecting, transferring, managing, retrieving or sharing evidence, Evidence.com improves the process and reduces the day-to-day burden on officers. Manually ingesting digital evidence is a thing of the past. With the Axon Dock, videos from Axon cameras are automatically and securely transferred to the cloud during routine charging. For sharing, say goodbye to driving discs over to the DA. With Evidence.com, sharing entire cases is as simple as a click of a button.
Working at TASER means you wake up every morning knowing that you're about to help make the world a better place. Whether it is protecting truth one line of code a time or protecting lives through the devices you've led to launch, you'll be making a difference. It's a lot of responsibility, so we try to reward hard work with a focus on employee happiness and unique perks.
We like to move fast and mix things up. We think the work is better together than alone. 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.
Our mission to protect life and protect truth is what drives us. It's why we work hard, and it's what differentiates us. When you come in for an interview, you can expect to talk to a diverse group of people who all share a passion for and understanding of our products. The perfect candidate isn't just the one who can write the best code or make the best sales pitch. It's the one who is just as excited about our mission as we are, and has the raw talent to help us pursue it.
Remember, interviewing is a two-way street. This is your chance to see if TASER is the type of company you can get behind, and in order to help you make that decision we want you to be ready to ask us questions as well. We're always happy to share our experiences.
Our executive team is made up of leaders with broad business and technology experience. You will find them sitting in the same open work spaces as everyone else, always ready for new ideas.

I worked at TASER (More than 3 years)
Great products and name recognition.
Highly political environment focused at Harvard grads in the LDP program
Advice to Management
There are many people who did not attend Harvard who have good ideas too.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TASER (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2016.
Applied online - process took about two weeks. Received an email from another Engineer that would pass my application down to HR if I passed (I guess I didn't)- Everything was over the phone. Really nice and polite. In between answering my education and experience, but he would bring up a technical question. It was a lot of infrastructure questions. I'm more of a software developer.
