Hiring: UAV Engineer

Ascent AeroSystems is one of the most exciting new players in the UAS (drone) industry, and having just received additional funding to grow our business, we’re hiring!

Our unique designs provide the foundation for the most portable and durable vehicles available anywhere, and we’ve attracted tremendous interest from customers across the professional, commercial, industrial, public safety and military markets.  We're actively looking for someone to join our engineering team in Syracuse, New York as we transition from a successful crowdfunding project to a robust, sustainable business. Check us out here!

Working with the existing cofounders, our experienced team of advisers and world-class customers across industry, government and academia, you'll bring your expertise as a flexible, innovative engineer with a solid grasp of design and a knack for clean-sheet thinking.  Flexibility, curiosity and a burning desire to wear many hats are core to your being…you’ll need to be willing to take on any number of tasks that face a small, fast growing company.  One hour you’ll be working on a new CAD model, the next you’ll be rolling up your sleeves and helping to assemble vehicles while coordinating the efforts of part-time help you’ll help to hire and train.

If you’re someone who wants to work at the leading edge of aerospace technology where design cycles are short and decisions can be made quickly, this is your kind of environment.  A degree in mechanical, electrical or aerospace engineering is required, and experience with model aviation, basic electrical design, UAV technology (especially autopilot and flight control logic) would be ideal.  This position is based in Syracuse, NY and needs to be filled as soon as possible.  

For the right candidate we offer competitive compensation, a vesting equity stake, a terrific work environment, and the opportunity to be a part of one of the most exciting parts of the domestic aerospace industry.  If this sounds interesting, please contact us at careers@ascentaerosystems.com  We'd welcome the opportunity to get acquainted!
