Flight Software Engineer

Zipline is developing the most advanced fleet of autonomous vehicles in the world to serve its mission of providing life-saving medical products across the planet. To do this, we're building a small team of the best and brightest software engineers to come up with simple solutions to really hard problems.
In your first 6 months, you will:
Ship an optimizing route planner for routing vehicles to delivery sites
Design adaptive delivery algorithms to increase delivery accuracy in windy conditions
Create algorithms governing vehicle decisions and inter-vehicle coordination
Work on a sensor payload system used to create obstacle maps offline
You are right for this job if you are excited to:
Contribute across the robotics stack ? from writing optimizing path planners to defining automated air traffic algorithms
Own projects from drafting requirements through test flights and releasing to production
Design safety-critical algorithms that control fleets of vehicles
You should be an A-Team software engineer:
You will be able to understand any line of code that runs on the plane, and write any of that code (except for device drivers and control loops)
Great at finding a clear path in a forest of uncertainty
An expert programmer
Self-directed and self-motivated, thriving on small, scrappy teams
Excited to work on safety-critical algorithms
You see around corners, always having a Plan B and C

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
