Organization Overview:

We've already mapped 5 cities and are on pace to map 100 cities around the world in the next couple of years, in order to enable autonomous drones and flying cars (VTOLs) to be adopted at scale globally. We're well funded by Angels, VCs, and government. We have a kick ass product, team, and customers. This role has immense upside for anyone looking to take their professional journey to the next level as we head into scale mode. We've won plenty of awards and are becoming a staple of Canada's innovation economy, ranging from Sustainable Development Technology Canada, the DMZ, Communitech, ENCQOR 5G, MaRS, etc. We have research and associative partnerships with both the University of Waterloo and the University of Toronto. We are growing rapidly in Canada and internationally, this is your chance to join a unicorn before it gets there, before it's too late. 🦄🚀

We exist to empower cities to take control of their skies, and accelerate the adoption of urban aerial mobility around the world.

AirMatrix provides a software layer that is necessary to enable unmanned traffic management (UTM) and in conjunction, drone services, to truly scale in cities across the world. Our company allows municipalities and select enterprises to build aerial highways for multiple drones that travel autonomously and simultaneously within shared airspace. This enables precise command and control of heightened traffic to facilitate growth in new industry applications as well as brand new industry segments.

AirMatrix is a world leading deep tech Canadian UTM software company based in Toronto and Waterloo. The team is composed of award winning roboticists, designers, and global executive talent. We work with cities as well as regulators to unlock economic and environmental value in urban airspace. We have a list of 10 commandments, of which the first is ‘thou shalt operate from a place of love’. Our Advisory Board consists of some of the world's top researchers/scientists in robotics, and investors that are successful entrepreneurs in Space Tech, Machine Learning, Cyber Security, Blockchain, Robotics, AI, and more.
