Job Description

You will develop the most advanced fleet of autonomous vehicles in the world to serve its mission of providing life-saving medical products across the planet.


You will own high-fidelity and easy-to-use simulations that are central to developing future generations of lifesaving airplanes.

You will tear down an existing simulation, write in new functionality, and wrap it up in a package that others on the team can incorporate into their workflow without fuss.

You are comfortable setting up an adaptive solver for stiff systems, multidisciplinary first-principles modeling, creating variations on models to target different simulation bandwidths, and saving the sim from bloat by finding elegant mathematical/mechanical solutions.

You will be working very closely with others on the team, including flight controls engineers, systems engineers, and data scientists.

Projects you will work on:

  • Building a ground-up 6DOF simulation environment for an aerospace vehicle
  • Building a lightweight simulation to exercise mission management software
  • Building a high-fidelity simulation of our next-gen recovery system, which includes an actuated, elastic tether catching a tailhook on an aircraft, with the ensuing aircraft-line dynamics

Must have Skillsets:

  • Creating simulations from first-principles
  • Wrapping simulation systems for reliable regression tests
  • Developing in C/C++ and associated build tools
  • Coding in Python, Julia, or a similar high-level language

Desired Skillsets:

  • Control design
  • A breadth of simulation tools
  • Aircraft mechanic

Location: South San Francisco, CA

Type: Fulltime
