Skyryse wants to empower anyone, to fly anywhere, in any aircraft, safely and as a highly experienced pilot would. Powered by the Skyryse operating system, Flight OS, we automate flight controls and systems management to achieve unmatched safety and eliminate opportunities for human error. We want to make flying as ubiquitous as the road and as safe as the elevator.


As a Human-Machine Interface Software Developer, you will be part of a fast-paced interdisciplinary team that is responsible for prototyping the next generation of human machine interfaces that Skyryse will offer as part of its FlightOS system. You will work alongside a team of designers, engineers, and fabricators to create a complete HMI system that makes the task of piloting an aircraft infinitely simpler, and furthers Skyryse's goal of democratizing the skies. 

You are a Unity/C# developer who will initially concentrate on display software running in the cockpit of our aircraft. Your responsibilities will range from prototyping interaction designs leveraging Unity UI system, creating procedural terrain systems, visualizing sensor data and developing AR/VR simulations to test cockpit ergonomics. The code you help create will be tested in both simulation environments and in real flight tests via experimental aircraft. You will be at the forefront of the aviation industry’s effort to simplify vehicle operations and make the future of aviation safer and more accessible.
