Founding Engineer at Arrow
At Arrow, we are building vertical-takeoff aircraft that are affordable and accessible to anyone. We believe that we can make faster, more effective progress towards this ambitious dream if we embrace collaboration over competition and build entirely in public so that anyone in the world can easily contribute their ideas. Our mission is to create a scaled air-taxi network that will dramatically increase human freedom and connectedness by allowing anyone to travel wherever they want, whenever they want.
As software technology advances, more and more of the hardware engineering process can be completed digitally. Aerospace companies of the past necessitated a local team to iterate in the physical realm. Going forward, work can be completed remotely. Instead of machined prototypes and wind tunnels, we use CAD models and CFD testing. Critically, we believe that focusing on remote first will allow us to grow a larger global team, and move much faster than teams limited to physical proximity.
At Arrow, we have a culture of idea meritocracy. All of our engineering work is open-source, so anybody is free to contribute valuable ideas and get rewarded with our Arrow token. Instead of a traditional legal structure, Arrow has all of its business logic on the Ethereum blockchain. This way, we can easily reward any contributor with our token, which will grow in value along with Arrow’s success. We recognize the extraordinary difficulty of our mission, and we don’t exclude anyone with work or ideas to contribute.
