Zipline is developing the most advanced fleet of autonomous vehicles in the world to serve its mission of providing life-saving medical products across the planet. To do this, we're building a small team of the best and brightest software engineers to come up with simple solutions to really hard problems.
We value diversity at Zipline and welcome applications from those who are traditionally underrepresented in tech. If you like the sound of this position, but are not sure if you are the perfect fit, please apply! If you're still early in your career and don't yet meet all these strengths but are a fast learner and excited by our mission, please apply!
In your first 6 months, you will:
Ship an optimizing route planner for routing vehicles to delivery sites
Design adaptive delivery algorithms to increase delivery accuracy in windy conditions
Create algorithms governing vehicle decisions and inter-vehicle coordination
Work on a sensor payload system used to create obstacle maps offline
You are right for this job if you are excited to:
Contribute across the robotics stack – from writing optimizing path planners to defining automated air traffic algorithms
Own projects from drafting requirements through test flights and releasing to production
Design safety-critical algorithms that control fleets of vehicles
Strong candidates will have many of these traits:
You are excited to understand any line of code that runs on the plane, and feel comfortable writing almost any of that code
Great at finding a clear path in a forest of uncertainty
An expert programmer
Self-directed and self-motivated, thriving on small, scrappy teams
Excited to work on safety-critical algorithms
You see around corners, always having a Plan B and C
More than two billion people lack adequate access to essential medical products, such as blood and vaccines, due to challenging terrain and gaps in infrastructure.
Zipline improves access to these supplies by flying over impassable mountains and washed-out roads, delivering directly to remote clinics. We centralize supply and provide on-demand deliveries, completely reducing waste and stock-outs.
Zipline provides a seamless delivery system at an affordable price, obsessing over every detail, so you can focus on patient health.
