Ready to change the world? 

We are reinventing how products are delivered around the world by unlocking the path not yet traveled. Our company was founded in 2015 and is backed by Silicon Valley’s most prominent VCs, including LightSpeed Venture Partners and YCombinator. Volans-i provides fast on-demand aerial delivery service for time-critical shipments over long ranges. We build and operate long-range, high-payload drones for commercial, defense, and humanitarian applications. Leveraging drone technology as a transportation method, we help our customers gain control of their supply chain and save millions of dollars on downtime and inventory costs.

Our work came from the immediate need for critical delivery of parts to drastically reduce downtime for an automotive company. From this idea, our founders have scaled the company into a team of highly skilled and motivated individuals to serve critical delivery markets.


Volans-I is seeking 14 CFR Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate pilots with experience planning and conducting either manned or unmanned aircraft operations. A professional approach to flight discipline and sound judgement are a must.  Experience with training and overseas flight operations desired.

This position will be integral to developing Volans-i's drone solution services program for customers stateside and abroad.

+Plan and conduct either manned or unmanned aircraft operations.
