We are FLOX and we are developing robotics & AI solutions for autonomous drones to coexist with wildlife. We are looking for an experienced hardware engineer with experience in embedded systems, software-hardware integration and drone technology. Are you interested?

Who are we?

The world is changing. Today, we live in a highly transformed landscape on a planet with a biodiversity crisis. Around the world, as the human population continues to expand, and natural wild places are reduced, people and wildlife are increasingly coming into conflict over living space and food. It might be wild boars destroying crops in Sweden, elephants in India eating pineapples, European bears and wolves killing livestock, or elk collisions with trains in Norway. The problem is universal and is bad news for all concerned.

At FLOX, we turn what was previously a human-wildlife conflict into a new way of managing and protecting natural resources in shared landscapes.


How do we work?

We are developing robotics and artificial intelligence applied on autonomous drones to reduce damages caused by wild animals to cultivated fields, young forest areas, and other areas where coexistence is needed, such as avoiding wildlife strikes at airports or preventing wildlife-vehicle collisions.

Through our solutions, we are able to effectively categorize different wildlife species, map their mobility and even trigger safe deterrents to repel or re-route the wildlife from certain zones.

Who we are looking for?

We are looking for an experienced hardware engineer with experience in embedded systems, software-hardware integration, and drone technology.

Your key responsibilities will include

  • Understand the entire system and help in the design, development and assembly of the hardware parts used in our product, from a mechanical and electronic perspective.
  • You will be in charge of all the hardware parts used in Flox, from the drone platform that we use to guide wild animals from the fields in autonomy to the devices we develop and attach on the front of trains to avoid collisions with wild animals.

We are not a drone manufacturer, which means you will be using a drone platform and be responsible for the assembly and integrations of the boxed Flox system including various sensors and cameras, both on a drone, and on other moving vehicles.

Your ability to be hands-on in product development, lead and inspire teams, communicate and negotiate with stakeholders and thrive in the resource-constrained environment of a scaling startup, will be critical to succeed in this role.

Skills & Requirements

Requirements:

  • Deep knowledge in hardware design, development and maintenance, both from mechanical and electronic perspective.
  • Experience in directing system testing and validation procedures.
  • Previous experience in deployment and hardware/software integration.
  • Knowledge in electronic design and development.
  • Experience in 3d modeling and 3d printing.
  • Willing to work in a dynamic environment.
  • Good command in both written and spoken English.

What do we offer?

  • Steady runway of 2 years
  • Offices in central Stockholm as a part of STING
  • Animal-friendly team
  • You will be part of an award-winning and impact-oriented company with global ambitions
  • Strong mission: we are on a mission to restore the balance and provide mutually-beneficial solutions that benefit both wildlife and local human communities in a variety of sectors.
  • We work towards:
  • Feeding a growing population by maximizing production
  • Preventing further human expansion to wildlands
  • Coexisting with wildlife in animal-friendly way

We would love to have the chance to connect with you and discuss more. So if you’re interested, please apply here and we will get back to you right away.
