Flight Software Engineer

Remote Mountain View, CA
USD 95k - 153k
We believe aircraft should fly themselves. Automated aviation systems will enable a future where air transportation is safer, more convenient and fundamentally transformative to the way goods — and eventually people — move around the planet. We are a team of mission-driven engineers with experience across aerospace, robotics and self-driving cars working to make this future a reality.

As a Flight Software Engineer at Reliable Robotics, you will automate the operation of highly complex aircraft systems. Our Flight Software teams are deeply involved in all aspects of the development and certification of the Reliable Robotics autonomy stack, and play a central role in bringing our aircraft to life.


In your role as Flight Software Engineer, you will develop highly-deterministic C++ software in a bare metal environment that works with sensors & control systems, robustly handles system faults, and integrates with other vehicle subsystems. You'll drive requirements and implement excellent unit tests. You'll also have the opportunity to work directly with flight hardware in the lab and on the plane, plan flight testing, and watch your code fly an aircraft.

Basic Success Criteria

    • Programming ability in C, C++, or a relevant language
    • Professional or academic experience developing software for embedded or high performance applications

Preferred Criteria

    • Experience using advanced C++ language features in production code
    • Thorough understanding of computer architecture, operating systems and networking
    • Ability to work in a self-directed manner in a fast-paced environment
    • Experience developing software for safety critical applications
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
Flight Software links together the mechanical, avionics, algorithmic, and embedded worlds to actually make the airplane fly. The core nature of the role offers the opportunity to interact with teams and components across the entire automated aircraft and to specialize in the areas most exciting to you.

The estimated salary range for this position is $95,000 to $153,500.  At Reliable Robotics, we strive to provide competitive and rewarding compensation based on experience and expertise, as well as market conditions, location, and pay equity.  

In addition to base compensation, Reliable Robotics offers stock options, employee medical, 401k contribution, great co-workers and a casual work environment.
