Remote-Job: AI/Machine learning developer for drone delivery startup

ONE SECOND DELIVERY·FRIDAY, 8 FEBRUARY 2019 

We are hiring a full time AI/Machine learning developer to work remotely. Read the company and job description below.

About the company

We are a startup that delivers food, snacks and other goods with autonomous drones. The company was founded in 2017 by a leading expert on drone legislation and a successful e-commerce entrepreneur. The vice presidency of Innovation of the swiss federal intitute of technology (epfl) also supported the company during this founding period.

We believe that autonomous delivery vehicles like sidewalk robots, self-driving cars and drones will have a huge impact on the way we buy things.

People love to buy things online already, but if the delivery were free, and 100 times faster, people would like it even more. That’s why we are developing our autonomous delivery drones.

We are based in Lausanne switzerland, with some employees working remotely from other countries. This is one of those jobs where we are hiring remotely.

About this remote-job

You will develop the Neural nets required for autonomous drone navigation to the customers. You will work on 3 different neural networks:

- One network that localizes the customer

-One network that controls the drone during the delivery process

-One network that detects and avoids obstacles in the path of the drone

For the first network there is a dataset available, it is a traditional classification problem. For the other two you will train the network in a simulator. You will work with our 3d game developer who is creating a simulated environment where your neural network can learn to navigate a drone. This learning process will be done using different training methods like behavioural coning, reinforcement learning and others.

As mentioned previously, this is a full time remote job. Potentially we might fly you to lausanne switzerland and host you here for the first 1-3 weeks to get to know the team and the job, but then you will work remotely. We encourage our remote employees to sign up at a coworking community, but that is up to you.
