We are looking for all levels of wireless engineers to design and implement wireless receiver algorithms for drones and related technologies. If you love developing optimized receiver algorithms for a wide variety of wireless protocols, then SkySafe would like to hear from you! 

If you would like to learn new skills and poke around interesting systems while pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in an entirely new industry, then SkySafe might be right for you.

About SkySafe:

We’re continuing to grow the world’s leading team on drone security. Drone airspace management is a rapidly growing and vitally important industry and SkySafe is leading the way. Our commitment to protecting against threats while safely integrating commercial drones into the national airspace sets us apart. Having recently closed our Series B round of funding, we can’t wait to expand and continue development of our technology to assist governments, law enforcement, airports, corporations, cities, and more to manage their airspace with real-time drone data and analytics.

Come join our growing team in our San Diego office. Enjoy perks such as daily free lunch, full health and wellness benefits, unlimited PTO, gym membership reimbursement, and flexible work hours.
