About Wing: 

Wing is reshaping the future of delivery. We are an on-demand drone delivery service that can deliver food, medicine or other items within minutes. We’ve also developed an uncrewed traffic management platform to safely route drones through the sky. Our service is faster, safer and produces far less pollution than traditional delivery.

    • Directly perform initial and ongoing quality assurance and control tasks of geospatial data
    • Input collected geospatial data into Wing’s geospatial data management system 
  • Provide input to Wing’s geospatial data processes and specifications
  • Collaborate with engineering teams to ensure accuracy of Wing’s world model

What You’ll Need: 

  • BA/BS degree in Geographical Information Science or Systems, Remote Sensing, other relevant discipline, or equivalent professional experience
  • 3+ years of experience working directly with geospatial data
  • Strong working knowledge of geospatial data collection methods and their related benefits and limitations
