Job Description

Stereo Vision and Mapping Engineer

Airspace Systems, Inc. uses artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced robotics to create fully automated, always-on solutions that deliver the three mandatory requirements of airspace security: long-range detection, instant identification, and safe capture and removal of unauthorized or malicious drones. Airspace solutions protect people, property, and IP for businesses, law enforcement, and the military. All Airspace solutions are mobile, modular, and simple to operate. Founded in San Francisco in 2015, Airspace is funded by early investors in Nest, Palantir, and Skype.

At Airspace, we’re creating cutting-edge tech so autonomous flying machines can live and work among us. We leverage AI, machine vision and deep learning to realize the full potential of drones by using neural networks to power autonomy. Our fusing of advanced radar, radio frequency detectors, cameras and airborne sensors into advanced flight systems enable our currently-deployed end-to-end drone security solutions.

Do you want to join a company that codes in the morning and flies in the afternoon? Come work alongside veterans from the tech titans, such as Google, Apple and Autodesk, in our turnkey facility that houses everything from coding to manufacturing and is minutes away from our large, outdoor drone flight testing facility. 

We hire seasoned and talented software developers that bring years of experience in software design and development. We maintain a fun, collaborative and flat work environment. If you are a highly motivated team-player that enjoys working with a top notch team of engineers, please APPLY!
