It’s Not Work if it’s Your Passion

Do you have a passion for robotics and flight? Are you the go-to person for solving the most complex problems in your department or company? Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit and a drive for excellence? We want to hear from you.

Who we are

Airware is redefining the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) industry, aka drone industry, by creating an operating system and development platform for small commercial UAVs. Previous solutions have been closed black boxes, while Airware’s enterprise solution combines autopilot hardware, flexible software architectures, and an API for customization and expansion. We are a rapidly growing startup, well-funded by two of the world’s pre-eminent technology venture capital firms, Andreessen Horowitz and Google Ventures. Airware’s platform is currently enabling customers to tailor UAVs towards any commercial or civil application. These applications are almost unlimited: imagine building a system that helps protect endangered species in Africa from the threat of poachers, or one that allows first responders to get a nearly instant live bird’s-eye view of a disaster zone. At Airware, our engineers work every day with our customers and partners to make such visions a reality.

Why the best come to work at Airware

We are building exciting new technology which will power a global industry. We have a highly-dedicated multidisciplinary team of engineers, developers, and professionals combining experience from top research institutions with decades of collective experience in the UAV and aerospace industries. If you’re at Airware, you’re an expert in your field, a problem-solver and a go-getter.

What it’s like to work here

Airware is unique and characterized by a diversity of individuals who develop, test and iterate on ideas in days and weeks rather than months and years. Here you will find the computer hacker, private pilot, laid-back surfer, RC hobbyist, and video game designer. We work hard–really hard–but we always have a lot of fun. We take company trips, get together for happy hours and enjoy catered lunches at the office. We are a small and growing company, and we spurn the bureaucracy that can stifle innovation and creativity. The organizational structure is very flat, and you will have the opportunity to be involved in multiple aspects of the business.

Join our team

We’re looking for the best of the best to join our team. Ready to roll up your sleeves, work hard and be part of a winning team? We want to hear from you.
