Airware is redefining the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) industry (a.k.a.
the drone industry) by creating an operating system and development
platform for small commercial UAVs. Previous solutions have been closed
black boxes, while Airware’s enterprise solution combines autopilot
hardware, flexible software architectures, and an API for customization and
expansion. We are a rapidly growing startup, well-funded by two of the
world’s preeminent technology venture capital firms, Andreessen-Horowitz
and Google Ventures.

boards, custom power electronics, and supporting our UAV Systems
Engineering group in integrating our autopilot on customer aircraft. This

California or at our recently opened satellite office in San Francisco.
Following are some of the qualifications for the job:

- Expert at mixed-signal printed circuit board schematic capture and
layout, including all electrical design, component selection, placement and
- Robotics experience - designing robot controllers, sensor boards,
