About the role

Paladin deploys autonomous drones to 911 calls. Our first drone, Knighthawk, arrives on the scene of an emergency in under 90 seconds and gives first responders a live overhead view of the scene before they arrive, helping reduce response times and increase situational awareness. Knighthawk is a fully autonomous LTE drone with unlimited range, a 55 minute battery life, and is responding to over 130 calls each week across several cities. Over the next decade, our tech will be in every city across the world helping first responders save lives.

We’re hiring embedded engineers who want to build products that save lives. Experience with Linux and RTOS is great, and a background with C/C++. Super plus if you’ve worked with IoT, cellular-connected devices before. Knighthawk can be controlled with the touch of one button from anywhere in the world, and this role would focus on adding more autonous features to the drone and shipping new features every week based off requests from our first responder customers. Experience with drone frameworks such as MAVSDK, PX4, MavLink are great but not required.
