Biofire Technologies is on a mission to give gun owners better tools for reducing preventable gun injuries and deaths, especially among children. We believe our technology, combined with a best-in-class customer experience, will define the future of firearms safety for the next generation. Our mission-driven approach has earned support from the firearm community, the tech world, and the media.

Biofire employees are world-class engineers who have designed and tested firearms, medical devices, robots, cars, satellites, rockets, and supersonic jets. What unites our team is our commitment to safety and reliability that we bring to our work every day.



Reducing accidental firearm injuries and deaths requires original thinking and authentic collaboration, so we’re deeply invested in building a team and culture that can achieve our mission together. Team members enjoy autonomy and flexibility from day one, so expect to be immediately tasked with solving challenging problems and building new systems that work. We’ll hold you accountable for executing on audacious goals, giving and receiving honest feedback, and helping your teammates succeed. You’ll receive respect, kindness, and support from every direction while you figure out how to get it all done.



As a Test Engineer at Biofire, you will be responsible for the development and execution of testing to ensure the quality and functionality of our product. You will bring your expertise in design of experiments techniques, deep knowledge of instrumentation and test equipment, and proficiency in evaluation methods to build an effective Test and Evaluation organization within the company and trust within the firearms community.

To succeed, you will need to be a creative problem solver, capable of understanding fully integrated, multi-disciplinary products and requirements, and developing test methods and strategies to effectively verify and validate our product. You will need to be quality-driven and able to execute to industry standards. You will need to have strong verbal and written communication skills to deliver clear and detailed test documentation that will serve as the foundation of our products' quality.



Day to day responsibilities of the role will include:

  • Partnering across all disciplines to identify appropriate test strategies through the products' development, test and evaluation phases;
  • Generating clear and detailed test documentation, including plans, procedures, test data delivery, and reports;
  • Ensuring safety by managing and maintaining Biofire’s test facility in accordance with Standard Operating Procedures, safety, quality and industry standards;
  • Executing and overseeing all Biofire testing;




If you think you will succeed in this role, and love the work you’ll do, we encourage you to apply regardless of your background. We evaluate candidates based on their unique talents and fit for our needs, not a rigid list of qualifications.



We’re bringing innovation to a technological problem that has persisted for decades, so we depend on diverse, inclusive, and collaborative teams to break new ground and do great work. We welcome people from all qualified backgrounds, and we don’t discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, political affiliation, national origin, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, status as a protected veteran, status as an individual with a disability, or other applicable legally protected characteristics.



Our dog-friendly, state-of-the-art headquarters is located in beautiful Broomfield, Colorado, between Boulder and Denver. Most roles require team members to frequently collaborate in person, but you will enjoy the flexibility to work from home when you need to. We trust you to communicate with your team to make things work.



We’ll need you to bring your very best, so we give you what you need to do a great job. You’ll enjoy flexible hours, teammates you will like, respect, and be inspired by, and all the technical resources you might need at our Broomfield office.

In addition to our competitive pay and stock options, Biofire offers fully covered medical, dental, and vision benefits, a funded Health Spending Account, unlimited PTO (that team members actually use - we promise), a 401(k) with employer matching, and a 14 week parental leave policy. We deliver perks including noise-canceling headphones, the premium music streaming service of your choice, and anything else you’d need to succeed in your role (within reason).

This is a full-time, salaried role with a flexible work-from-home policy. The compensation range for this role is $100,000 - $150,000.
