WHO WE ARE

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.

 

OUR CULTURE

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.

 

ABOUT THE ROLE

As Biofire’s Industrial Designer, you will be responsible for utilizing your unique skill set of innate creativity, problem solving skills, and artistic/engineering prowess to seek out new challenges and unmet needs, and design innovative, intuitive and beautiful solutions to them. You will work within Biofire’s in-house Industrial Design team, interfacing directly with the Engineering and Business teams on current projects as well as researching and developing concepts for future products. To succeed, you will need to possess creative vision and wield the practical skills (strong hard skills in sketching, model making, CAD modeling, and research) to bring that vision to life.

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

Day to day responsibilities of the role will include:

  • Participating in brainstorming sessions and Design Reviews;
  • Conducting User Research, analyzing user data, and researching design and market trends;
  • Concept Development in the form of Ideation Sketching, CAD, and physical model making;
  • Assisting with other business needs, including prototype testing, 3D print builds, and facilitating Marketing Communication.

 

COMPENSATION, BENEFITS & PERKS

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.

 

QUALIFICATIONS

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.

 

LOCATION AND HOURS

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’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.
