Rain – Mechatronics Engineer

Every wildfire starts small. Rain contains wildfires within 10 minutes of ignition using a network of autonomous drones permanently installed throughout high risk regions. We are fire sprinklers for the forest.

As an engineer at Rain, you will work with a small group of tactical, multidisciplinary engineers with experience in robotics, UAS, data science and safety critical systems towards a singular mission: eliminating undesired wildfires on an aggressive timeline.

As a Mechatronics Engineer, you will apply your background in mechanical and electrical engineering to develop systems supporting the autonomous operation of the Rain System. This position is located at our flight and test burn facility in Pendleton, Oregon with travel to customer sites as necessary. This position reports directly to the Chief Engineer of Autonomous Systems.
