About Zipline 

Do you want to change the world? Zipline uses drones to deliver critical and lifesaving medicine to thousands of hospitals serving millions of people in multiple countries. Our mission is to provide every human on Earth with instant access to vital medical supplies. Join Zipline and help us make this a reality for billions of people.

About You and The Role  

The Zipline Software Team enables the world’s largest autonomous delivery system: fleets of hundreds of drones flying to thousands of hospitals, day in and day out. We’re a team of passionate software engineers who solve real-world problems with simple solutions. We are customer obsessed, we value safety and reliability, and we value ownership.

What You’ll Do

As a Software Engineer at Zipline, you’ll be given broad responsibilities over an important product objective, working in some of these domains:

  • Flight Software - autonomous decision making, path planning
  • Embedded Systems - radios, sensors, motors, and real-time operating systems
  • Simulation - we’ve flown 2 billion miles in sim to develop and test our drones
  • Geospatial systems - flight routes, maps, weather, and air traffic control 
  • Data backbones - a web of data that connects the most remote corners of the planet
  • User interfaces - apps for our doctors and patients, operations dashboards

You’ll work with a team of mission-driven engineers, our operators around the globe, and sometimes even directly with the doctors and nurses we serve. You’ll run test flights (in cooperation with our flight testing team), review data from the field, and regularly ship new capabilities each month.

What You’ll Bring
  • Strength in software engineering: you make the codebase better with each push
  • Solid fundamentals: you can figure out the math, physics, and geometry for software that runs in the real world
  • Customer obsession: you love crafting solutions that work in the real world
  • Emphasis on quality: you know how to move fast without breaking things
  • System-level thinking: you see the big picture and push for great architecture
  • Collaborative mindset: you thrive on small teams working toward a common mission
