Learn more about our hiring process.

Ready to join our team?

We’re building the coolest tech on the planet. To do it at the level and pace our mission demands takes a world-class team. And so, our hiring process reflects this reality.

We’ve provided some info below to give you a feel for what it’s like to interview with Skydio. We’ve also included some general questions that you may want to have answered. Our recruiting team is here to help answer any additional questions you may have.

FAQs

We believe in the significance of informed choices, both for our candidates and for Skydio. Recognizing that deciding where to work and who to work with are pivotal decisions, our interview process is thoughtfully comprehensive. We're committed to investing the time to genuinely understand who you are, while equally providing you with ample opportunity to deeply acquaint yourself with how we operate as a team.

  1. Introductory Call: Your journey starts with a conversation with our recruiter. This initial interaction sets the stage for a mutual exploration of possibilities and alignment.

  2. Phone or Video Screen(s): Progress to in-depth discussions with the hiring manager and key team members. Here, we delve into your skills and aspirations, and you gain a clearer view of the role and what it entails.

  3. In-Person Interview Day: A detailed and immersive experience.

    1. Candidate Introduction (30 mins): A platform for you to share your story and key projects/experiences with the team. This is an opportunity for you to highlight the aspects of your background and experience in a way that captures your story and sets the stage for deeper, more productive 1:1 conversations.

    2. 1:1 Conversations (30-45 mins each): At this point, you’ll get a chance to talk with three to five Skydians. These sessions are designed to help you learn about the nuances of our work and team ethos.

    3. Lunch and Interactive Sessions: Bond over a meal with team members, take a tour of our engineering facilities, and experience our latest technology through hands-on demos.

We strive for meaningful conversations that help us understand how your unique skills and perspectives align with our mission. Our interview approach mirrors our collaborative work ethos. We engage candidates with scenario-based questions that reflect the real-world challenges of the role, and facilitate open-ended, collaborative discussions. This method isn't about looking for specific answers, but more about understanding your thought process and your ability to navigate complex problems within a team.

At Skydio, we prioritize in-person interviews for the face-to-face stage, as it's the best way for you to experience our office environment, have meaningful interactions with potential team members, and give you hands-on experience with our products. However, we understand that circumstances can vary. For certain roles or individual situations, we're flexible in accommodating virtual interviews. Whether in-person or online, our goal is the same: to ensure a meaningful and insightful experience that highlights the collaborative spirit of Skydio.

We know that waiting for a response can be an anxious time, so we strive for timeliness in reviewing applications. While we can't promise an exact time frame due to the thoroughness of our selection process, rest assured that we will get back to you, regardless of the outcome. Our commitment is to keep you informed throughout your candidate experience with Skydio.

We believe when our teams have the opportunity to work side by side, amazing things happen. Especially in the moments “in-between” — whether it’s a hallway conversation, an impromptu whiteboard session or a coffee chat in the kitchen — these are the moments when real magic happens, when ideas are born, problems are solved and our teams and technology become stronger. We build physical things that operate in the physical world — making it all the more important for our team to be together. While expectations are slightly different across teams and roles, we are first and foremost, an office-centric company.

Over the last few years we have become more distributed than ever with Skydians spread across the globe. Our office and operating protocols are designed to support a global team while prioritizing being together in the office. Remote Skydians join us in the office on a regular basis throughout the quarter to ensure they’re building connections with team members. Meanwhile, our conference rooms are outfitted to enable remote employees to feel like they are in the room, regardless of where in the world they may be.

Skydio is headquartered in San Mateo, California, with a manufacturing hub close by in Hayward. Satellite offices in Boston, Japan, and India extend our global reach.

"Skydio drones are being used to save lives and aid in the maintenance of critical infrastructure in ways that sounded like science fiction just a few years ago. We couldn't be more excited to continue our partnership with Skydio as they solidify their position as the world's most innovative drone technology company.”

Bastiaan Janmaat, Managing Director, Linse Capital



Skydio raised $230 million in a Series E round, led by Linse Capital, with Andreessen Horowitz, Next47, IVP, DoCoMo, Nvidia, and UP.Partners participating. Angel investors include Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe, AngelList founder Naval Ravikant, former Motorola and Cisco CTO Padma Warrior, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy, Magic Johnson, Justin Timberlake, and Kevin Durant.

Our resource center and blog are great places to start: everything from latest product updates to datasheets and whitepapers of our products.
