Hylio designs, fabricates, and offers UAS (unmanned aerial systems i.e. “drones”) for the agricultural industry. Our mission is to make farming easier and more successful for our customers.
We are a fast growing technology startup in Richmond, TX focused on developing cutting edge precision agriculture solutions.
We’re seeking team members that are self-motivated, eager to grow with our company, and excited to service our customers.
As a UAS/Mechatronics engineer you will design, prototype, and finalize for production the electromechanical systems that Hylio offers to its customers. Not only does this include the UAS themselves, but auxiliary systems such as telemetry modules, obstacle detection and avoidance modules, ground station computing modules, handheld GIS devices, automatic liquid payload refilling devices, automatic UAS charging stations, sensor gimbal payloads, granular spreader devices, and more. You will work in a dynamic team setting where you will interact with technicians, computer scientists, and other mechanical engineers.
You will be expected to present designs and prototypes in professional review settings with supervising engineering staff. You will also be expected to test fly UAS to verify the validity and functionality of prototyped systems.
Utilize CAD and other engineering software applications to design electromechanical components/systems for Hylio’s product offering
You work can can involve, but is not limited to:
Sensor UAS (i.e. “scout” drones)
Terrestrial, “rover”-type drones
Obstacle detection and avoidance with radars, lidars, computer vision, etc.
Automated payload refilling systems
Automated charging and/or battery swapping systems
Sensor gimbal payloads
Granular spreader/hopper devices
Rapid prototyping of systems by leveraging 3D printing, manual machining, CNC machining, and other manufacturing methods
Designing and executing tests to determine electromechanical system functionality
Test flying UAS to verify designs and gather engineering data
Professional presentations of designs and prototypes to supervising engineering staff on a regular basis
Development of manufacturing plans for scaled production of electromechanical systems
Work in a team setting with other engineers, technicians, and scientists
BS/MS in mechanical, aerospace, and/or mechatronics engineering
Strong knowledge of mechanical design practices and procedures
Strong experience with CAD programs (Solidworks, Fusion360, and/or NX)
Strong computer literacy; Use of Microsoft Office Suite, Google Suite, and various office administrative software applications will be required
Preferred: 2-5 years relevant work experience
Preferred: direct experience working with UAS
Preferred: rapid prototyping and machining experienc
Job Type: Full-time; in-person attendance required
