At Animal Dynamics we make vehicles that combine high efficiency with full autonomy and are able to do more with less impact on nature than other vehicles that perform the same tasks. Taking our inspiration from animals and the natural world we can achieve significant improvements in the performance and efficiency of vehicles in water, air, and ground travel.
What motivates us is our desire to create original and worthwhile solutions to real problems. We are motivated to realise designs that will positively disrupt industries and technical approaches that have long been taken for granted.
Our current focus is on two vehicles: a small flying surveillance vehicle, called Skeeter, that is able to fly quietly in high winds; and Stork, a vehicle which has been designed as a highly energy and cost-efficient aerial system for carrying loads. These vehicles are full-stack autonomous vehicles, with complex mechanical, electronic and software features. There is a range of vehicles on our roadmap, and we have demand for these products in a variety of international markets.
Based near Oxford, we are a friendly Company which is growing rapidly. We recruit talented, committed people who want to work in a stimulating and supportive environment.
Overview of the role
We are looking for a front-end developer to deliver the visual component of our software that users see and interact with. You will be involved in the UI development of web and native (Android) apps used to control our unique UAS platforms. It is important that you have skills in web development and Android development as you will be developing both web and Android apps. The focus of the role will be to support the design and create a functioning website/app from it.
We’d like to hear from a strong generalist programmer, with interest in UI design/development, that can pick up new technologies easily. We are not just building run-of-the-mill web pages or apps and we have a strong need for efficiency and performance given that we deal with real time communications that are vital for the products.
You can be based in London or Oxford depending on your preference. Sometime in Oxford and travel between the two locations will be expected.
