SkyCircuits, and parent company Callen-Lenz, are always looking for flexible individuals. Our latest range of autopilots are currently being developed from the ground up and new functionality is constantly being added and tested in a demanding environment including simulation as well as real flying. We make full use of the RUST programming language in a real time safety critical environment and we are always interested in exceptional people who understand the concepts employed in bringing to market such critical software.

We test, we model, we document, we program, we simulate and we fly, not always in that order! We work to an Agile development methodology including hardware in the loop of the continuous integration lifecycle.

Whilst we may not always have specific roles to fill, at the moment we are expanding and perhaps you have the talent to become part of our team with an ability to work in the Salisbury area of the UK and with a willingness to get directly involved in UAS operations. Contact us for more information.
