An Insider's view of Shield AI

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is collaborative and lively, but there's also plenty of space for independent deep work.


Engineering Manager - State Estimation

What does your typical day look like?

I get to do hands-on work every day -- touching the aircraft, learning how it's put together and how it operates, diagnosing issues and troubleshooting, and more. That's really what drew me to this job because I want to do more than sit behind a desk.


Mechanical Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

The most successful people on my team have a "no job is too small" and team-first mentality. They understand & appreciate the value of building fast -- with rigor and long-term sustainability in mind. They are also intellectually curious and frequently read papers, books, etc., and are retrospective of our performance so we can constantly improve.


Senior Staff Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is to protect service members and civilians at scale by building a defining technology company of this generation. We will achieve this by being mission driven; living our values of honor, service, and excellence; and building the world's best AI pilot.



How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Shield AI has given me a lot of flexibility to determine my own schedule and develop work habits that work well for me. I also have been consistently supported when I express that I'm feeling overburdened and have been encouraged to rest and recuperate.
