Engineering | Zurich, Switzerland | Full-time / contracting

What you tell your family you do:

“I’m building the world’s largest drone ecosystem by designing web tools to help other software developers build better drones. Our software runs on all kinds of drones used for inspection, search and rescue, safety, delivery and more. No, I will not deliver you a pizza with a drone (yet)!“

What you really do:

As a Full-Stack Software Engineer, you are responsible for building developer-facing web tools for the autonomous robot software development cycle. You will build responsive web tools for data visualization which help developers in the ecosystem build better drones.

In detail you will:


  • Build and maintain a software architecture that interacts with large amounts of data on the client-side in a highly responsive UI

  • Work with a dockerized service-oriented application consisting of a Single Page App (Vue.js/TypeScript), a frontend server (Node.js/TypeScript), backend services (Rust/GRPC), and PostgreSQL hosted in AWS

  • Work with data scientists who are building machine learning flight performance analytics in the app (Python/TensorFlow/Kubernetes)

  • Be responsible for holding the highest bar for the entire software life cycle, from strategic planning to tactical activities, to execution and implementing solutions for customers

  • Follow the principles of Test Driven Development and always have cybersecurity as first priority

  • Write clear, well documented and easy to maintain code

  • Knowledge of state-of-the-art toolkits and libraries to build responsive web UIs such as - Angular, React, or Vue

  • Willingness to learn Rust

  • Familiarity with cybersecurity requirements for client-side execution and data sharing
