Wing -- Alphabet’s (Google’s) drone program. We do design, manufacturing, operational service, and also flight-management software for ourselves and 3rd parties.
Location -- mostly Mountain View, CA, but also a few roles in Virginia, Australia, and Finland.
Who -- candidates who LOVE aviation, and also scaled cloud/internet technology, automation, and are excited to use UAS as a means to create a fantastic service that people love (even non pilots!).
We’re looking for several roles, but one in particular is a Chief UAS Pilot
). We’re looking for a very unique blend of skills -- someone with a few years of both manned and unmanned experience; someone who knows how to follow the rules, respect safety culture, while also being visionary about how the future of aviation could look totally different -- someone who’s equally at home with paper preflight checklists as they are opening up a command window on a linux laptop to configure a software package. If this sounds like you, we really want to hear from you!
(Or if you know someone who fits this description, give them that link please!
There are many other open roles
as well. See this link

Thanks for looking!
More About Wing:
Wing is Alphabet’s (i.e., Google’s) drone program. We’re building an aerial delivery system to carry urgently needed items across our cities in just a few minutes, while improving the safety and carbon footprint of our transportation networks.
A few videos/articles that have more details:
* Our drone delivery system provides radically fast (and cheap!) service to customers
, as well as helping grow local businesses
* We’re creating a “UTM
(Unmanned Traffic Management) Platform” -- basically “Google maps for the skies” software to help drones fly safer
* Helping develop and demonstrate open-source RemoteID tools
that help the FAA meet their security needs while also maintaining user privacy
* Deploying our system to Europe
(that's a presentation that tells more about us)
Many on our team come from manned piloting backgrounds as well as the RC hobby community, and we’re committed to building these new drone systems in ways that support the entire aviation community (that’s why we plan to make UTM software available for free to hobbyists, for example, as well as put ADS-B receivers on our drones so they always yield to manned airplanes), as well as keeping the future of aviation open and innovative (which is why we’re pushing open-source
solutions that let many companies both play well together and compete with each other)
