Supplier Quality Engineer @ 3D Robotics

About 3D Robotics:
We're North America's largest personal drone company, known for pioneering advanced and easy-to-use consumer drone technology, and for the Pixhawk, the world's most popular autopilot platform. We're also an all-around awesome, super exciting place to work. Help us define the next wave of flying machines! These products are totally changing the way we see our world, understand our environment, and get things done. THIS IS ONE OF THE COOLEST THINGS HAPPENING ON THE PLANET RIGHT NOW - JOIN US! ALL CAPS!

Yes, this is a position in a startup!
We're well funded, and we can pay you. But if the two main priorities in your life are inherent security and the ability to rely on things planned months ahead, please stop reading this now and do something else. If curiosity, resilience and clear sense of individual responsibility get you going, please continue reading. You'll find and we expect a sense of truthfulness (towards oneself, each other and reality, learned the hard way), being demanding (is this the best you can do?) as well as extensiveness (have fun really grasping things in their entirety).

The Role:
In this role you'll have a lot of autonomy and control over how you execute on this project. You will own supply quality engineering from the time products are in development through final production. Also, you get to work on flying robots! What's not to love about that?
