  Are you a Senior Software Developer excited about the possibility of working on a small team to build cutting edge technology?  At PrecisionHawk, we’re building technologies that change the way we view and interact with the world. Our Developers consistently push the boundaries of what’s possible with drone technology, and we pride ourselves on finding new ways to process data to solve real global problems. Our LATAS team builds and maintains the LATAS drone safety platform which uses real time air space and 3D ground data to provide enhanced safety to drone pilots, airline pilots, and airports. As a Senior Software Developer you will play a key role in the architecture and design of this cutting edge platform! 

How would you utilize your experience designing and developing software applications at PrecisionHawk? Here are a few examples of what you can expect to do and learn:

  • Build high-quality software components for PrecisionHawk’s platform
  • Collaborate directly with project management, product, design, and engineering teams on new product features
  • Help to build the technical processes, select the frameworks, and establish the design patterns that will drive our application's continued growth
  • Assist with code reviews and provide feedback on code quality
  • Develop documentation and design materials, as needed

You may expect to see a laundry list of requirements at this point. Instead, we thought we would tell you a little bit about our tech stack and if you'd like to learn more, let’s be in touch. 

The technology we use includes:

  • Java, Ruby on Rails, JavaScript (ES5 and ES6), and Python
  • Single-page application development with React and Redux
  • Amazon Web Services
  • GIS applications (e.g. ESRI, ArcGIS, Proj4j, PostGIS, Grass, QGIS)

If you have experience with some of the technologies we use, great! If not, that's okay, too. We’re looking for talented, intellectually curious Developers who can apply their skillset to any tech stack.  Together, we’ll do things that have never been done!
