(UN)MANNED is a fast growing software startup with tremendous opportunities for inhouse career growth. We aim to redefine aerospace software, and to become an essential part of every new aircraft, or aircraft upgrade.

We are working on the onboard software and associated electronics for manned aircraft and spacecraft, as well as on both the ground stations and the onboard software for unmanned aircraft and spacecraft. We mostly work on large unmanned aircraft, which have the same safety needs as manned aircraft.

As a team, we strive for diversity and actively encourage diversity, and respect your life outside of the company.

We do insist on coming in to the office to have a good team spirit and fast interactions. You will be located in (UN)MANNED's offices in Bruges, Belgium. Our offices are within walking distance of the train station, with excellent connections to Ghent, Brussels, Antwerp and Leuven.

We have a hands-on approach, where managers are deeply involved in the execution. 

Contact us if any of the following profiles is you:


VHDL Developer

We are designing our own chips for massive parrallel processing. We use this for accelerating aircraft computing, creating graphics and interpreting incoming video. We also use it to implement new learning algorithms and artificial intelligence.

Your job is to bring algorithms that are prototypes on PC to VHDL, completely rewritting the logic to take full advantage of the inherent paralelism of the FPGA/ASIC. You will focus primarily on video processing, image feature extraction and also image generation.

Experts in Embedded Computer Vision

We are working on computer vision for Unmanned Aircraft, using C code (main processor) and VHDL (FPGA).

We expect you to have proven experience in the domain. Academic work is sufficient, if your work at the university is on topic and domain specific. Please provide with references to your work, and if available publications. If you come from industry, please provide us with non-confidential information about your past work. So if you have a deep background in computer vision and embedded software development,
contact us for this job.


Innovation Manager

(UN)MANNED does a lot of innovation projects with partners from the industry and academia. These projects are usually aimed at truly raising the state of the art, and being second to none. Our research aim is on the intersection between artificial intelligence and airworthiness certification. The concept of having a computer make decisions (AI) is the direct opposite of proving the correctness of the application (certification). That tension field is the focus of our business and research.

Your job is to manage the research, from the initial interacting with partners, to winning projects, to leading them, as well as publishing about the result. You will work closely with, and report directly to, the CEO. Your work touches on all parts of our technology and future products. You work with (y)our people, and help further strengthen the research team.

Beside research credentials on relevant topics, prior experience with EU collaboration projects is a big plus when applying for this job.
