The ideal candidate is a passionate software engineer who is eager to deliver both functional and user-friendly applications.

You are eager to be "on the field" (literally, we operate drones!) with the team to understand the needs and gather requirements. Designing scalable, enterprise-grade software and leveraging modern cloud infrastructure with microservices should be second nature to you.
This position will allow you to grow with a fast-paced tech company as a team leader in developing core technologies for the drone delivery industry. You will be mentored by the CTO of the company, Andreas Antener, founder partner of UAVenture AG, an experienced software engineer in the implementation and integration of complex distributed systems and flight control algorithms.
The company's vision is to develop core technologies for operational excellence, mirroring the high standards and safety of the civilian airline industry to grow the world’s first drone delivery airline to have an impact at scale. Aerialoop offers aerial bridges between urban and residential areas where food delivery is unavailable or takes a larger amount of transportation time. With integrated safety systems, the main value that Aerialoop brings to its clients resides in operational excellence, safety procedures, and technology systems. The company has partnered with Rappi, the largest food delivery tech company in Latin America, to pilot deliveries in Quito, Ecuador. The Rappi-Aerialoop team aims to expand the offer of food, medicine, and other consumer goods to suburban areas in larger cities in Latin America. Aerialoop solves a logistics problem of the delivery in places where the lack of transportation infrastructure or chaotic traffic makes ground delivery slow and inefficient. The company also extends the offer of popular food businesses and retail stores in residential neighborhoods with aerial bridges between geographically disconnected areas. The company comes from a combined effort brought by The Ecuadorian drone manufacturer, Latitude Aerospace Solutions and the advanced flight control software Swiss company, UAVenture. In addition to the experience of their founding partners, a top-level technical team, and senior Executive Board of Directors, Aerialoop envisions to be the next unicorn of Latin America tech startups.
Aerialoop wants to reshape the future of mobility by opening new paths and encouraging smarter ways of living. All of that by making drone delivery ubiquitous. 1.
