Head of UAS Applications Software

Singapore

Role

You will be leading the development of a Ground Control Software (GCS) for the direct control and management of our fleet of drones. This is a multifaceted role and you are expected to build, manage and develop a team as we progress.

You will build and maintain features and software architectures that support a large native application with a mix of UI/UX. You will build the GCS on the QT stack using C++ and Javascript (QML), which also interacts with Java and other native platform build tools (gcc, gdb, llvm, lldb, make, cmake, etc). There shall also be interactions with on-board systems to control complex missions, different types of video feeds and real time radio systems.

With autonomous deliveries at the core of our focus, the software you’d build must facilitate an incredible user experience. The GCS is the actual product for the end users, more than the drone hardware itself! The complexity of the programme is high, with dependencies and integrations across internal aircraft engineering and production divisions, delivery operations and external operational and regulatory stakeholders.

Your profile

  • Bachelors or Masters in Computer Science/Electronics or similar discipline

  • Fundamental concepts and algorithms with 4+ years of professional working experience with any statically typed programming language (C, C++, C#, Java, or similar)

  • Experience in using C++, Javascript, QT and QML

  • Strong knowledge in multithreading & OOP concepts

  • Experience in implementing software code for GUIs, back end systems

  • Experience with architecture and developing complex, greenfield, mobile/native apps ideally in a lean environment

  • Experience in entire product development lifecycles

  • Ability to prioritise what matters and meet deadlines

  • You preach and put into practice the importance of maintainability, relentless testing and enjoy implementing best practices

 

What do you get

You will play an important role in a company that is creating many firsts in the world, and make an impact in the world of aerial drone deliveries.
