Software Development Team Lead

Vilnius, Lithuania/Remote
Added: March 6, 2024

Let us introduce ourselves! We are a team of curious hackers & tinkerers who love to build random stuff just for the fun of doing it. We spend our time in a major hackerspace where we have access to lots of toys for the big boys: CNC mills, laser cutters, 3D printers, etc. We are considering building a remotely controlled cart, a pulse jet engine, or maybe a rail gun – still deciding. Because why not?

We are also a B2B engineering company that builds high-tech systems for helicopters, airplanes, and other vehicles. Think of flying precision laser scanners, high-res & thermal cameras, fiber-optic gyros, satellite communications, etc. Occasionally, we get on board an aircraft to fly around and test what we have built, sometimes just as an excuse to go up in the sky! We genuinely love what we do, and it just so happens that we have built the most awesome system in the market of this kind (for real). Now, we are selling it all around the world to geospatial companies, utilities, helicopter operators, and other businesses alike. They use it to detect defects and potential problems in critical infrastructure, such as power lines, railroads, and pipelines worldwide – from Europe and the Americas to Africa.
