Our mission is to provide every human on Earth with instant access to vital medical supplies. Join Zipline and help us make this a reality for billions of people.

About You and The Role

Does aggressively tackling ambitious 10x cross disciplinary projects from early conceptual stages through full field deployment sound like the way you want to spend your time?  Do you cut short circular discussions to run a test or demonstration instead of scheduling another meeting?  At Zipline, your work is intended for the field, customers are counting on it today,  so there is no time for ambiguous communication or aiming low. If you revel in generating user experience design recommendations with empirically-grounded insights, then read on.

Zipline believes access to medical care should not depend on your GPS coordinates. We are at the forefront of a logistics revolution, using autonomous aircraft to deliver just-in-time, lifesaving medical supplies on 3 continents around the world right now, 7 days a week.  Are you interested in building a system that 200 million people will depend on with their lives?
