Skydio is the world leader in autonomous flight, the key technology for the future of drones and aerial transportation. The Skydio team combines deep expertise in artificial intelligence, best-in-class hardware and software product development, and operational excellence to empower a broader, more diverse audience of drone users - from action sports enthusiasts to first responders to insurance claims adjusters.
About the role:
Reliable embedded firmware acts as the brain stem of the autonomous drone -- bridging the gap between the algorithms and the sensors/mechanical hardware. You will contribute to the development and implementation of the core software that makes the vehicle fly.
How you'll make an impact:
Develop and implement the embedded software that runs on the vehicle
Characterize, integrate, and validate key subsystems (e.g. next-gen camera, radio)
Bring up and debug new hardware
Write interfaces and drivers for sensors and other devices
What makes you a strong fit:
Modern C++ in an embedded context
Ability to write clean code with appropriate abstraction boundaries
Embedded microcontrollers, camera drivers
Practical experience writing firmware/embedded code for a physical device
Embedded security and cryptographic firmware development
Embedded linux userspace and kernel development
