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.

  • Expand in-house testing and analysis capabilities, researching, proposing, and bringing up new equipment
  • Write and run scripts to analyze test data and flight logs
  • Document test and analysis results and present finding to stakeholders
  • Work cross-functionally with a diverse team of electrical, mechanical, and software engineers to investigate and resolve hardware issues

What You’ll Need: 

  • 1+ years of experience building test hardware and analyzing vibrations in small unmanned aerial vehicles
  • B.S. in Mechanical Engineering or related discipline
  • Knowledge of vibration analysis
  • Knowledge of finite element methods and other computational analysis techniques
  • Experience with SolidWorks designing test fixtures and assemblies

  • Hands-on experience using vibration test and measurement equipment like electrodynamic shakers and piezoelectric accelerometers
  • Familiarity with common hardware reliability test methods (shock, drop, etc.)
  • Ability to write and run scripts using MATLAB or Python

Bonus: 

  • M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering or related discipline
  • Knowledge of common parts and vibration sources in small UAVs
