We do what we say we will do.
Integrity matters. Be a person of your word.
We are professionals.
All of us have something that we are good at. Respect others and be courteous and kind in your interactions.
We value diversity, of all kinds.
Diversity is a strength, not a liability. It helps open our minds to new ways of thinking and points of view that we might not otherwise of considered. This is a place where everyone should feel welcome, regardless of race, gender, background, education, or upbringing.
We do not steal.
Do not take what is not yours, including both personal property and intellectual property. Axon has spent a great deal of time and effort designing ways to protect everyone’s IP, but at the end of the day it is up to us as individuals to respect the rights of each other.
We don’t assume.
When in doubt, ask. We all know what happens when you assume.
We ask questions.
Curiosity fuels innovation. Never be afraid to ask “why?” – many of the greatest discoveries in history started that way.
We can always learn.
In the same vein, we never assume we know it all. Even domain experts are always learning new things. Education only stops when we let it stop, and we pay the price for doing so.
We embrace forgiveness.
Mistakes happen. Feelings get hurt. We recognize our errors, correct them, make things right, and move on. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
We help each other.
Wealth is not a fixed quantity – it can be created. There is enough business for everyone, and we can succeed without putting others down. We strive to foster an environment where we can rely on each other rather than compete with each other. People are more important than profit.
We update this Code of Conduct.
This is a living document that we are always looking to improve. Please feel free to make suggestions and point out areas we can improve.
