Want to work for 3D Robotics? We're hiring a Director of Software Engineering

We're looking to hire a full-time Director of Software Engineering at 3D Robotics (the company that makes APM and the other products in the DIY Drones store) in San Diego. They should have the following skills:

  • Experience with embedded programming, and ideally familiarity with the ArduPilot codebases
  • Deep interest in UAV/Robotics
  • Some Web programming experience
  • Project management skills, including ability to manage open source teams.
About half of the job is working with the five-person hardware engineering team that's already in place at the 3D Robotics factory in San Diego (factory floor shown above). The other half is project-managing the 50+ volunteers in the software Dev Team who are distributed around the world and bringing new members into that team in a way that helps them contribute effectively from the start. 

The package would offer a competitive salary, stock options and standard health care. It's probably a better role for someone with at least a few years of work experience, rather than a new graduate, but if someone has run large robotics teams in university, we'd consider them. 
If you're interested, please email your resume and a few lines about why you'd be perfect for this job to jordi@3drobotics.com, cc'd to chris@wired.com

You need more like an engineer who sometimes manages.  Wasn't this Pat's racket?

Of course this comes along right after I accept an international assignment.  Good luck to all!

Many thank's Chris! Did you use some special coating, because the surface looks very smooth.
