  • Understanding of the various assembly requirements.
  • Must be able to turn an idea into reality.
  • Must be able to meet deadlines in a fast-paced quickly changing environment.

What you can expect from us:

  • Constant collaboration with numerous Apex Officer teams, including Customer Support, Implementation, Product, and Engineering.
  • A team that respects and embraces your ideas and expertise.
  • Coworkers that are motivated by pursuing excellence, rather than the prospect of personal gain.
  • A workplace dedicated to supporting and bettering public safety and government agencies.
  • Related job training, professional mentorship, and regular feedback with company leadership.
  • Opportunity to grow in this role and take on more responsibility.
  • Competitive salary, goal and milestone bonuses, and incredible benefits.

Apply to this job if you have:

  • Possession of at least a high school diploma is required and a post-secondary degree is preferred (but not a deal breaker).
  • A desire to work with law enforcement and first responders. We help the people who protect and serve, and that’s near to our hearts.
  • A passion for firearms and technology.

We’re changing how law enforcement interacts with their customers, and we need your help to do that! We can’t wait to hear from you.
