Required Qualifications and Skills
At Near Earth Autonomy, we are building the future of flight by creating autonomy systems that enable aerial vehicles to fly themselves safely and efficiently. When you join our company, you will get a spot on a team with the best minds in robotics and aerospace working to solve some of the hardest problems in the industry. You will write algorithms to keep aircraft safe by detecting wires hundreds of feet away, implement programs that map the world by processing hundreds of thousands of lidar data points per second, design sensor enclosures that can withstand the vibrations of helicopter blades spinning at 400 rpm, and participate in-flight tests to watch your technology in action. You will collaborate with mentors and teammates who are happy to share their expertise and help you grow professionally.
While this role is based in our Seattle location, you will be part of the larger team that is headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA. You will find the reputation of a well-established company combined with the meritocratic structure, dynamic culture, and personal ownership of a start-up. You will travel to Pittsburgh at least once a year to attend an annual meeting and on an as-needed basis.
We are a community of valued individuals who understand that life happens outside of the office. We are flexible and accommodating to our staff’s needs, particularly when unexpected situations arise such as needing to take care of home life and family. Our compensation package includes a salary that enables a comfortable life, stock options that reward employees for long-term loyalty, a 401k retirement plan, and medical, dental, and vision benefits.
We are looking for women and men who want to revolutionize aerial delivery, transport, and inspection. If you are up for the challenge, please submit your application, come on board, and let your passion take flight.
