Our strategy to get there is completely different from the rest of the industry.

Skyways is a startup based in Austin, TX. We are backed by some of the most respected investors in Silicon Valley including YCombinator. Although we consider ourselves early-stage, we already have vehicles in production and in the hands of paying customers (see here and here). Come join us and work on a transportation revolution to advance our civilization!

We are currently looking for a Front End maestro/maestra to join Skyways Software Engineering team. This critical role will build the front end applications that are used by Skyways and its customers. If you're excited about having a massive impact being the first Front End SWE at a growing tech startup and build novel user experiences, we encourage you to apply!

  • C++ or Python experience

This is an opportunity to architect the user interfaces for our amazing current and future aircraft (large drones). If you have experience building an end to end UI application and can picture yourself coding in aviation sunglasses 😎, we strongly encourage you to apply!
