Full-timeC++ Software Engineer

Verity Studios AG – Posted by Thea Weidemann Anywhere

Job Description

Work location: Zurich

 

To complement its growing team, Verity Studios is looking for an experienced and versatile C++ Software Engineer capable of designing and developing high quality software for Verity's indoor drone systems. Designing software for drone systems requires addressing new and challenging problems such as defining robust and reliable communication protocols to interact with embedded devices (both on wired and wireless connections), defining smart interfaces to promptly interact with the drones and the other system components during a show, and building flexible systems that can adapt to the requirements of several kinds of scenarios (different type and or number of drones, different operating procedures, etc.).

Verity’s indoor drone shows have travelled the world. Our drones perform in high profile events and have flown in more than 20 countries. Having toured with Metallica and Drake, mastered the high seas in cruise ship theaters, run 400 shows on Broadway, and flown above audiences at corporate events, our technology has proven itself on the toughest testing grounds. Behind the scenes, the magic is fueled by cutting-edge robotics and AI technologies. Our indoor drone show system has been engineered from the ground up with safety and reliability in mind, enabling a single operator to safely manage and fly dozens – or even hundreds – of drones in a high-pressure stage environment.

Our software team works on a multitude of challenging and interesting tasks, such as implementing drivers for proprietary embedded platform, defining robust and efficient communication protocols, designing algorithms to retrieve, process, and analyze significant amount of data, and implementing graphical user interfaces for control stations.

Based in the center of Zurich Oerlikon, we are entrepreneurs, engineers, artists, live events professionals, mathematicians, and designers; all working as one. Our recent $18 million series A funding round has paved the way for our further expansion. Come join us!
