Seeking UAV Embedded Systems Developer

SkyX is looking for a UAV generalist, autopilot specialist who spends their weekends building, crashing and rebuilding drones, automating their pet feeder and making spreadsheets to track the soil moisture of their herb garden. Nobody who works at SkyX has the luxury of sticking to their job description, our ideal candidate has a broad knowledge of all aspects of autonomous vehicles, and could help with any stage of development. That said, this position is focused on the brains of our UAVs – the Pixhawk family of flight controllers.

SkyX is a unique cutting edge company building the world’s most advanced aerial and ground autonomous systems. You will be working with a global team on exciting projects.  We work hard and we play hard.

You will:
– Work with every aspect of Pixhawk flight controllers; the hardware, the firmware, the software, the peripherals and sensors
– Write your own code and modify the existing Ardupilot and PX4 firmware bases
– Analyse flight logs to characterise controller performance or identify software bugs
– Tune PID controllers
– Troubleshoot hardware issues and software bugs
– Breadboard concepts with Arduino
– Plan and conduct bench tests and flight tests, analyse data and write reports
– Talk in your sleep about Git merging

– Bachelor’s degree in mechanical, electrical, aerospace, software engineering or similar
– Proficiency in C++ and C. Python is an asset – Linux proficiency
– Extensive experience with Pixhawk on Ardupilot or PX4. Both is an asset
– Experience with GitHub or bitbucket
– Working knowledge of electronics
– Solid understanding of flight dynamics and controls
– Good UAV piloting skills is an asset
