Job Description

At Elroy Air, we build autonomous vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) cargo aircraft systems to change the way the world moves goods. Transporting cargo by air is faster and more efficient than by land or sea, but before recent technological and regulatory developments, it was prohibitively expensive. Today, we’re able to expand middle-mile logistics possibilities across multiple sectors. The commercial express shipping industry spends $140B annually on the middle-mile and needs faster, better solutions - while the armed forces are increasingly prioritizing unmanned aerial cargo delivery systems.


These partners and customers are already responding enthusiastically to the technologies we are pioneering. As we develop and deploy these systems, we are looking for people like you: motivated collaborators, excited by our mission and by the rare opportunity to improve how logistics works around the world. You will play an important role in establishing Elroy Air as the industry standard in this massive market.


Diverse perspectives at all levels are critical to innovation and employee development. We encourage our team to bring their whole selves to Elroy. This includes but is not limited to gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender expression, religion, age, ability, parenthood status, veteran status, educational background, citizenship status, or any combination of these characteristics.


We are looking for an experienced Embedded Software Engineer to join our Software engineering organization. You will work across a broad swath of the software stack, including emulation of sensors and electromechanical actuation systems, ensuring reliable performance of low-level peripheral drivers, and timely execution of high-level vehicle control loops. This role is highly cross-disciplinary, requiring a keen understanding of our Flight Software & Avionics architecture to effectively contribute to the stack, as well as to create emulators that can be used to ensure the safety & functionality of our aircraft. Your code will be deployed on our flight computers, as well as on Elroy Air’s Software-in-the-loop and Hardware-in-the-loop simulation platforms.


This is a remote, full-time, exempt role. Some travel will be required (~1 week/quarter) including, but not limited to, visits to flight test locations and critical vendor visits to assure we hit key milestones.
