    Zee.Aero is developing revolutionary aircraft concepts, working at the intersection of aerodynamics, autonomy, and electric propulsion. We are actively building a team of world-class engineers who have experience in fields ranging from power electronics to aerodynamics.

    This position is based in Mountain View, CA. Zee.Aero will provide a relocation allowance for successful candidates.

    Our Software and Automation group is seeking software engineers with experience in developing airborne vehicle simulations using C/C++. The testing infrastructure created in this role will be used to integrate and test flight software and avionics using software-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop methodologies. The successful candidate will be responsible for implementing the overall software infrastructure, and creating code to model sensors, communication paths between avionics modules, communications faults, and system failures. The Simulation Software Engineer will also be responsible for interfacing the simulation to physical pilot control hardware and visualization subsystems for pilot-in-the-loop testing. The emphasis on this position is primarily on software development skills, rather than aerodynamic modeling or controls theory, though those skills are also valuable in this position.

    Requirements

          • B.S. in Computer Science (or equivalent degree) with 3 or more years of applicable experience
          • Familiarity with C and C++ development tools
          • Significant experience with Unix/Linux environment
          • Significant experience with GNU toolchains, Make, and GIT version control system
