About Us

Moonware is a venture-backed startup enabling the next generation of aerial mobility with automated and sustainable airfields. We’re building an integrated ecosystem of AI software and smart vehicles that optimally connect ground crew, aircraft, and ground support equipment to efficiently service flights. 

Our long-term vision is to handle aircraft autonomously from touchdown to takeoff, providing seamless aircraft turnarounds for a streamlined airport experience.

Moonware was founded with the belief that multimodal air transportation will become the prime mover of people and goods during the 21st century. From eVTOLs that will ferry passengers between cities and suburban areas, to supersonic aircraft shaving travel time between continents, we are ushering in a new air and space age that will further globalize humanity.

Airports and the hubs uniting these modes of transport will need to evolve to meet this new modern demand for air travel. In spite of the current advancements in aircraft technology, the infrastructure and ground processes that will enable these new aerial ecosystems to happen are largely outdated.

We are builders hailing from Tesla, Waymo, NASA, Google, Uber and Corvette, leveraging years of product development experience in aerospace, automotive, and robotics to revolutionize the airfields of tomorrow.

Software Team

Moonware’s software team is building HALO, the OS for aviation ground handling operations.

HALO is an integrated software & IoT platform designed to streamline aircraft turnaround management, seamlessly coordinating ramp crew and ground support equipment (GSE) to service flights on time. HALO’s core optimizer fuses flight information, GSE locations and crew tasks to create optimal service missions. Position trackers, instrumented on GSE, provide vehicle location information that is used to define app-specific features. 

Crew & GSE are scheduled & dispatched through the mobile app to service aircraft according to real-time flight schedule changes, with a smart routing feature that navigates ground crew drivers to their destination on the airfield, saving time. 

Real-time task allocation and dynamic vehicle routing are examples of features that take place in the cloud, effectively replacing the current use of radio and paper. These time-sensitive operations are migrated over to digital infrastructures that can process the large datasets necessary for task & equipment allocation along with their inherent complexities.

This approach enables us to collect large amounts of data that is virtually absent on ground vehicle whereabouts and movements, interactions between ground handling agents, and service time punctuality. Furthermore, by collecting ground data from different airport hubs, we can build robust machine learning models that take into account airfield traffic patterns and airport-specific constraints. We can then use this data to inform where the greatest bottlenecks in ground operations are occurring and how these processes can be augmented by ‘last-mile’ ramp services with autonomous GSE. This is what we call laying the bridge to airfield autonomy.

About the Role

We are looking for a highly skilled and experienced Mobile Engineer (Cross-Platform) to join our team and help build the next generation of intelligent airport systems. As a Mobile Engineer you will be responsible for designing, developing and maintaining HALO, primarily in React Native,  and working closely with engineering & interfacing with clients to deliver a user-focused mobile experience. 

Your responsibilities include:

  • Design and develop features for HALO in iOS and Android platforms
  • Ship clean, efficient, and scalable code that can be used reliably by thousands of users across airfields globally
  • Analyze and break down complex data inputs and collaborate cross-functionally to influence design for ease-of-use, scalability, and testability
  • Collaborate with robotics engineers, designers, and clients to define, design, and ship new features
  • Contribute to ideating and deploying product features for the next generation of automated airsides

Requirements:

  • Strong experience in mobile app development on both iOS and Android platforms
  • Strong knowledge of Swift, Kotlin, Java, and/or C#
  • Experience with React Native or other cross-platform mobile development frameworks
  • Experience with RESTful APIs
  • Experience with Git, JIRA, and Agile development methodologies
  • Strong problem-solving and debugging skills
  • Experience with unit testing and continuous integration
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills
  • Strong UX intuition
  • Previous app development experience at startups 
  • 3-8 years of experience

This role might be for you if:

  • Aerospace, autonomy, and robotics excite you
  • You like to rapidly iterate, learn on the fly, and wear many “hats”
  • Are looking to have meaningful impact in an early-stage startup
  • Love leading technical teams in developing complex solutions for client

Nice to haves:

  • Aerospace experience (aircraft OEMs, airlines, or aviation ops in general)
  • Embedded software engineering or IoT experience
  • Data science or algorithms development background
  • Hardware integration or autonomy experience
  • B2B client interfacing and product development experience
