Start Date: March 2017
We are looking for an enthusiastic and driven engineer to help us develop a leading edge drone for aerial inspections. This will involve integrating sensing, computing and flight hardware to carry out robust, reliable inspections. Experience with building and operating drones is highly desirable, but not essential. Great practical engineering skills combined with experience in software development are key to the position. The successful candidate will join a small, but highly capable team with great links into the industry and who are passionate about creating intelligent robotic solutions. Come and join the team and be part of our journey.
