Vayu, Inc has current openings

 

BUILD FLYING ROBOTS!
Vayu, Inc. is a startup located in Michigan that builds small fully autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) that can transport vital goods over difficult terrain and poor infrastructure in developing countries.

Why? There are over 1 billion people in the world that are disconnected from the closed loop of supply chains because of poor or nonexistent roads and railways. Transporting goods costs more, in time and money, in countries with limited or damaged infrastructure than in places like the United States, where robust and maintained roadways are commonplace. 

Our company’s product literally flies over poor infrastructure with a novel VTOL-capable, fixed wing UAV that can safely, reliably, affordably, and autonomously transport medicines, vaccines, and lab samples between villages, towns, and cities.

Who are we hiring?

•         Visionaries, geniuses, and compassionate innovators.
•         People who have unrelenting motivation and initiative.
•         The best and the brightest.
What jobs are available?

•         Aerospace Engineering
•         Guidance, Navigation, and Control
