CAREERS AT SILENCERCO

Who are we?

SilencerCo formed in 2008, when two men in a garage machined, welded and shaped their dreams into a reality.  Now, over 10 years later, SilenceCo is still designing and developing products through unconventional ways to create the best suppressors on the market.  The founders were determined to only introduce products to the market that were a significant improvement over existing product.  SilencerCo continues with dreams and determination while remaining focused on innovation, creativity, and problem solving.

SilencerCo is dedicated to creating products that will improve sound reduction levels, durability and longevity, form and function, ease of use and maintenance in ways never thought of or achieved.

SilencerCo staked its claim on a large share of the market and strives to increase market share with top level customer service, innovative products and the introduction of new products.  We aspire to be the benchmark for innovation, marketing, education, and manufacturing for all consumer product companies.

 

Culture

Though we come from all over, every member of the SilencerCo team shares a commitment to create the strongest brand in the firearms industry. We are passionate about our brand, our jobs, and our craft.  We are hunters, shooters, scientists, nomads, engineers and explorers that create what others can’t even dream of.

We lead the firearms suppressor industry, and work hard to find highly motivated, performance driven, innovative employees. We work hard to build an inclusive environment in which everyone, regardless of gender, race, religion, age or background, can perform at their best.

 

Why we do what we do

We love suppressors.  We believe in saving hearing, reducing recoil, and maintaining situational awareness while shooting and hunting to create a more enjoyable experience.  We ultimately question why shooting has to be loud. We never build a “me too” product. We never settle for “good enough,” we strive to disrupt. We do what we do because we want better products, because we believe in the 2nd Amendment, and because we are users — we shoot and hunt and want the best experience possible.  SilencerCo enjoys the challenge of bringing products to market in a meaningful way that captures immediate market share.

 

Perks

We have an on-site gym, monthly company BBQs, a dog friendly environment, concealed carry classes and that is just to name a few!
