About Us: Saildrone designs and manufactures wind and solar powered autonomous surface vehicles called Saildrones, which make cost-effective ocean data collection possible at scale. We are working with governments, civic agencies, foundations, universities and private companies around the globe to drive better information about our oceans and seas - be it in mapping out the ocean floor, collecting new CO2 data in hard-to-reach areas, counting bio-mass to establish fishing quotas, or detecting and stopping illegal fishing and drug trafficking. We believe that better inputs in planetary models in turn yield better outputs and that the new insights gained in weather forecasting, carbon cycling, global fishing and climate change will have tremendous impact on humanity. We are based in Alameda, CA and are backed by Social Capital, The Capricorn Investment Group, Lux Capital, Horizons Venture and The Schmidt Family Foundation.
The Role: This position will work closely with a teams of engineers, product managers, and engineering leadership to plan and execute a software roadmap for vehicle code running on Saildrones. This will involve software that commands and navigates drones remotely in real time, sensors and scientific payloads that gather data for clients, and camera-driven ML systems which identify ships and obstacles on the horizon. You’ll work closely with all parties involved - managing engineers directly, conducting 1v1s and performance reviews, marshalling and tracking work for engineering teams through to completion each sprint. You’ll also be coordinating with other managers to lay a course for future work and resourcing on a quarterly basis.
This position is located in Alameda, CA. Only candidates with proper permits to work in the United States can be considered. Our waterfront office offers beautiful views of San Francisco Bay in always sunny Alameda. Even our walls have good karma, our offices mix software development with a hardware production line in the former airplane hangar used to film 'The Matrix'.
This is an exciting opportunity with a fast-growing post series-B startup at the cutting-edge intersection of big data services and autonomous hardware. You will be an integral part of a high-performing multi-disciplinary delivering high impact for humanity and future generations.
