A Typical Day at Skylark Drones

There are very few startups out there that take technology from ideation through algorithms, proof of concepts and systemic reservations to create actual value. From flying drones, developing new age solutions to helping decision makers understand how drones are not just flying cameras, a typical day at Skylark isn’t your typical day at any other startup.

We do three simple things, we fly drones, we write code, we think common sense but most of all we do all of this together.

1You will Fly and Break new ground

Being a part of the team means being involved with developing tech that makes drones smarter and safer to fly and captaining drone fleets in locations that are almost as breathtaking as the people you will meet on their travels.

2You will Write and Create

What good is data without the necessary tools, algorithms and eye for detail to turn it into something meaningful? Working with the web solution and analysis team entails developing algorithms, designing intuitive and functional interfaces and turning mountains of data into insight gold mines.

3You will tell Stories that Connect

How do you find enterprises that need drone solutions the most? How do you help them realise the value of drone solutions after that? Finding these answers and turning them into stories, relationships by building trust is what the business development team here does.

Working at Skylark Drones

Startups innovate not only in what they set out to conquer but also in the ways they go about doing it. Want to change the conventional meeting place of the team? Why not meet at the roof top? Or Starbucks? At the end of the day what matters is whether you got the job done...

Computer Vision Engineer

As most drone data is in the form of images of some sort, majority of the insights that we can provide would benefit from the application of computer vision technology. From automatically identifying roads, buildings and trees, to detecting cracks in solar panels, and counting crops, computer vision is at the core of a large part of the value that we can provide as a drone solutions enterprise.

Front End Developer

As a frontend developer, there are a lot of exciting things that need to be done in this environment. As new use-cases are discovered, prototypes will need to be built, and as some of these use cases prove to be of real value to the customer, portals will have to be built to deliver large streams of data, insight and analysis. All this work will have to be modular, so that the same features can be incorporated into other industries if it is relevant.

GIS Application Engineer

As a GIS Engineer, this is a very exciting environment to work in. Working first hand with the data allows you to really see what can be derived out of it. You will have to analyse the data, and see what additional insight can be drawn out of it to increase value in our final deliverable. Tools will have to be developed, and workflows will have to be created so that the same operations can be conducted at scale.

iOS Developer

As an iOS developer, we provide a unique opportunity. Apps have to be designed and built for a variety of users and use-cases. Drone operators need apps to streamline their workflows, while customers need apps to view, analyse and collaborate on the data that we provide.
