"Working on similar", Jobs in Airborne Wind Energy

I once went to a talk given by the  robotics/electronics wizard and legendary toy designer Tony Ellis. He recounted stories of going to toy manufacturers to pitch his ideas. Occasionally the prospective customer would declare on the NDA that they were "Working on similar" effectively getting out of non-disclosure constraints and letting them shamelessly pinch Tony's ideas.

Very tangentially this comes to the reason why I haven't posted for over two years! I've been 'working on similar' in a UK airborne wind energy startup. I basically didn't trust myself not to disclose proprietary information, as I can get over-enthusiastic on occasion! Things have moved on somewhat now so I figure it's worth posting again.

To start with, our team keeps growing so there are 2 full-time jobs going in Airborne Wind Energy in the Southeast UK. Must have fluent English and right to work in UK.Work with a great team on a ridiculously challenging test and development programme.

1 x Software Engineering role, (Location Flexible):
Masters/PhD level or equivalent industrial experience. Ideally experience in at least 2 of the following:  Matlab, C/C++, Java, Git (or similar), Scala, AKKA, Maven (or similar), Embedded Systems, Robotics/Automation.

1x Mechanical Engineering role
Masters level or equivalent industrial experience. Ideally experience in Solidworks and in Industral design/fabrication/prototyping. Hands on aswell as computer experience preferred. NOW FILLED

You could be flying here!

We also have internships available for CompSci/AI/AeroEng/MechEng students, and can offer industrial collaboration projects for Masters theses,   if you are interested please contact me through the blog.
