GNC Engineer intern



Austin, TX, USA
Posted on Friday, July 28, 2023

At Skyways we are building a new form of air transportation. Some people call it the flying car. We believe fully autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles represent a unique opportunity to move things and ultimately people in new, more efficient ways. Our strategy to get there is completely different from the rest of the industry.

Skyways is a startup based in Austin, TX. We are backed by some of the most respected investors in Silicon Valley including YCombinator. Although we consider ourselves early-stage, we already have vehicles in production and in the hands of paying customers (see here and here). Come join us and work on a transportation revolution to advance our civilization!

Note: most of our jobs are located in Austin TX, with the notable exception of software related roles.

We are growing and looking for a controls intern to join our team.

You are excited about things that fly and new fundamental ways to go from A to B. You aren't afraid of tough engineering challenges, that's what gets you up in the morning.

You are willing to work directly on the aircraft and see your creation take flight (we really mean it!). You are excited about joining a startup, an extremely fast-paced environment where we get things done.


  • Take ownership of a (short-term) project and deliverable:
  • - Improve a module in our flight computer code (more efficient, improved optics for customers, better software performance)
  • - Plan and execute flight tests that determine vehicle performance parameters that can be used in analysis
  • - Integrate new hardware onto the vehicle to take inflight measurements to improve simulation capabilities


  • Pursuing Mechanical / Aero / Software Engineering
  • Must be an awesome and friendly individual
  • Bonus points for candidates with a pilot license
  • Extra bonus: Open a pull request for me with the Ardupilot “BIN” log and images from MAVExplorer attached showing a quadplane transition and back transition using Ardupilot where you changed QBACKTRANSMS from the default value.
