Job Description

To complement its growing team, Verity Studios is looking for an experienced Qt/C++ front end software engineer to design and develop user friendly and responsive user interfaces for Verity's indoor drone systems. Designing user interfaces for drone systems requires addressing new and challenging problems such as visualizing and manipulating complex 3D data for system calibration and choreography design, providing usable and actionable feedback about the status of hundreds of drones, and defining smart interfaces to promptly interact with the drones and the other system components during a show.

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. Will you join us?
