About Propeller Aero

Propeller is a global leader in 3D mapping and data analytics solutions that give worksites the power to measure and manage themselves, with visual tools that everyone can use from any device, anywhere, anytime.

Job Description

Propeller provides hardware and software solutions that make life easier for the people doing the dirty, dangerous, invaluable work that drives our society—construction, mining, aggregates, and waste management.

Like us, the people that make up the industries we serve are passionate about getting the job done right. That’s why every product and service we offer is designed to empower them to do their best.

Propeller is a well-established force in the drone mapping and worksite management space, but we’ve maintained that young, scrappy start-up energy that helped us establish that presence in the first place.

We’re certainly not a suit-and-tie environment, but we’ve got no slouches in our ranks, either. We’re fascinated with solving hard problems in uncharted territories. Each team member is empowered to approach, own, and solve problems creatively. We listen to each other, never stop learning, own our mistakes, and collaborate effortlessly.
