Backend Developer - Python

Skyqraft is on a mission to revolutionize the infrastructure inspection market by making it safer, more efficient and most importantly, sustainable. We are today a leader in defect detection of power lines through machine learning and computer vision.

We need your skills, dedication and individual drive to grow our multicultural and interdisciplinary team. You will push us forward as we reimagine a traditional industry ripe for disruption. 

Why inspect power lines? 

The uninterrupted electric power that we enjoy at our homes and work is a result of relentless inspections of power lines for any defects or hazards. These powerline inspections have previously been done manually in low-flying helicopters despite extreme risks, frequent accidents and harmful to the environment.

We are now reimagining and automating this space by analyzing aerial images captured by drones/UAVs, powered by the best defect detection system that computer vision can offer. This is not just safer but exponentially more sustainable and efficient.
