About Wing:

Wing is reshaping the future of delivery. We are an on-demand drone delivery service that can deliver food, medicine or other items within minutes. We’ve also developed an unmanned traffic management platform to safely route drones through the sky. Our service is faster, safer and produces far less pollution than traditional delivery. Originally created in 2012 within X, the Moonshot Factory, Wing is now an Alphabet company.

  • Understand project requirements and translate them into technical requirements to help build system architecture definitions and technology roadmaps that deliver new leading edge aviation technologies that adhere to best in class design, verification, troubleshooting and failure analysis standards
  • Perform data analysis and generate engineering documentation (design drawing, documents, test plans, procedures and reports)

What you'll need:

  • BS degree in Electrical Engineering/Embedded/Computer Hardware Engineering or equivalent practical experience
