Job Description

Zipline is looking for a software engineer without many years of experience. You should apply if you are motivated to learn fast, work on lifesaving projects, and solve really hard problems. No professional experience required, just a love for building things!

At Zipline, we don't mess around with unimportant projects! As a junior engineer, you'd still be given very real projects that will be released to the live system every week or two while working closely with the tight-knit team to be supported and grow as an engineer.

Projects include:

* Implementing portions of our automated air traffic control system
* Advancing our Hardware-in-the-Loop simulation setup
* Designing and implementing automated preflight checks
* Building fake sensors for bench-top testing
* Investigating bugs and issues discovered in the field
* Building a full-stack web application for operators to track aircraft maintenance

Strong applicants will have many of the following qualities:

* At least 1 year of professional experience as a software engineer
* Experience working on projects outside of required work
* Eagerness to work directly with hardware and prototype creative solutions
* Passion for understanding the user experience and building robust, easy-to-use systems
* An engineering or math degree with focuses in areas like computer science, robotics, or other engineering disciplines
