-You should be excited about the project, and our company.
-You know how to develop Unity games, and you can show multiple projects you did in the past.
-You are proficient at C#
-You are good at software development in general. There will be some tasks that go beyond simple game development, like creating an efficient way for our autonomous flight software to fly around the game, and optimising the computational speed.
-Optional: It would be a plus if you also have some experience with android/ios apps. As you might be able to help with that part of our business in the future.
-Optional: if you know some basics about machine learning it would be a plus as well.
Promising drone-delivery startup is hiring a 3D game developer to work remotely. Develop the 3D simulator that will be used to train our drones to fly around and deliver small packages.
This is the first project of its kind. You can work remotely and and hopefully visit our office in Switzerland a few times a year. We will likely add stock options to your compensation after the first few months on the job.
Our delivery drone is very versatile and can fly autonomously through complex environments. We achieve this by training our autopilot in a simulator. Your job is to build that simulator.
The first part of your job will be to develop a city environment with realistic graphics. Then you will add a realistic model of our drone, with physical flight behaviour that is close to the real flight behaviour.
Because our machine learning algorithm needs a lot of variety, the simulator needs to be able to generate an infinity of different city environments. A lot of this is already done, we have a random terrain generator, a random building generator and many other features. The dynamics of the “gameplay” need to have a lot of variety as well. In each virtual delivery, the drone weight, the wind, the weight of the package etc. have to be a bit different.
You will spend a lot of time creating these algorithms that are able to generate a big variety of situations.
We are creating a food delivery app that uses autonomous drones to deliver the food. Our drone is 10 times more energy efficient, and 25 times more quiet than any other delivery drone. It is also very versatile and can fly autonomously through complex environments. We achieve this by training our autopilot in a simulator. Your job is to build that simulator.
