Visual & Brand Designer at Elroy Air
San Francisco, CA, US

At Elroy Air, we are building autonomous cargo aircraft systems that will change the way the world moves goods. Transporting cargo by air can be much faster than by land or sea - but before recent developments in perception, autonomy, electric powertrain and aerospace materials, air transport has remained too expensive. We’re going to change that. And we’re solving a big problem - the express logistics industry worldwide spends $140B annually. 

 

The Elroy team has a proven track record in UAVs and drones, with veterans from 3D Robotics, Airware and Honeywell forming the founding and early team. We’ve started (and sold) hardware companies before. We are engineers, designers and product people who are obsessed with creating robust, easy-to-use technology that solves big real-world problems. This isn’t our first rodeo, but there’s a lot of exciting work ahead. You will play a critical part in developing & testing the Elroy Air system. 

 

Our future partners and customers are responding enthusiastically. As we prepare to pilot our vehicles with customers, we are looking for people like you: motivated teammates excited by this mission and by the rare opportunity to develop a world-class autonomous air transport system. There are a lot of jobs out there that you could easily get, we know that. But - speaking without humility for a second - few will be nearly as exciting as this. Come join us!

 

This is a full-time position at our headquarters in San Francisco, CA.
