Axon Business Intelligence

The Axon BI team is on a mission to create and foster a company-wide data culture by consuming necessary data from various sources, structuring data in a way that just makes sense, equipping stakeholders of any technical depth with tools to access and understand the data, and delivering insights that further our mission to Protect Life. Axon BI’s Data Engineering squad is tasked with getting the right data into the BI environment in a secure, compliant, and reliable way. They own architecture, infrastructure, system-of-record data ingestion, CI/CD, security, and compliance.

You will take our team to a new level in how we store, manage, monitor, and secure data using the full stack of cloud-based data services.

You will think big and long-term, while remaining agile and flexible. Your high standards and industry experience will help our team continue to raise the bar for BI, and your helpful and “can do” attitude will make others want to partner closely with you.
