Who we are

Neros is transforming a defense industry mired in costly, behemoth machinery—to circumvent a looming vulnerability gap, to give dismounted soldiers a fighting chance against tanks, and ultimately, to get as many humans off the battlefield as possible.

While consumer technology is evolving by bounds on the smaller-cheaper-better path, U.S. defense technology wallows in the large, centralized, and wildly expensive paradigm. Our air, land, and sea machinery budget is staggering; yet these large assets can still be vulnerable to very small weapons. When swarm technology comes into its own, the asymmetry will escalate. Nowhere is the pattern more glaring than in small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS)—drones.

What you will be doing

As an early Neros employee, you will get to help decide the direction of our future. We are looking for someone who can drive the development, design, and manufacturing of our PCBs used for our drones. You will be working closely with the rest of the engineering team to understand engineering constraints, design & optimize for requirements, and perform component selection. New grads with internship/hobby/work experience in these areas are highly encouraged to apply!

You should have the following

  • 3+ years of industry experience in a fast paced startup or manufacturing environment
  • Experience with full stack electrical product development including: requirements definition, schematic design, PCB layout /manufacturing, debugging, and production testing
  • Strong knowledge of Altium Designer
  • Embedded programming skills, specifically on STM platforms
  • Strong lab skills (Oscilloscopes, VNAs, etc)
  • Automated testing experience
  • SMT soldering / PCB mods
  • Ability to obtain US top secret security clearance

Nice to haves

  • UAV electronics design experience (PX4 / Ardupilot flight controller design or similar)
  • Experience with analog video systems (CVBS / PAL / NTSC )
  • Experience with digital video systems (e.g. MIPI-CSI)
  • Experience with camera design
  • Experience with BLDC motor drivers Next>
  • Experience with RF communication, DSP, or FPGAs
  • Experience with LoRa
  • Controls experience (e.g. PID controllers)
  • Experience with Antennas and RF routing
