Want to build drones? Little Smart Things is hiring

_88A1645_hiresThe last couple of months has been very busy here at Little Smart Things. The Cumulus One production is slowly ramping up, and we ship them just as fast. The Nimbo One is just getting ready for production, so we need help – maybe from you? We are hiring production personnel for our composites workshop.

It’s been an incredibly exiting, hard, frustrating, sleepless and fun journey. From idea til finished product in less than 18 months. The people at LIttle Smart Things has been hard at work, and the result makes me very proud. The Cumulus One does an autonomous vertical landing (that was a hard one), is hand launched and is to my knowledge the in the absolute top in terms of flight time. We are breaking the three hour barrier with this aircraft with a weight of just 1.4 – 2.0 kg.

This is possible be coUntitled-1urse of some very dedicated people, with a very healthy sense of creativity, tinkering and solid background knowledge.

And now we are in the fortunate situation that we need more good people to join us. Our aircraft is made from carbon fiber, kevlar and glass fiber. It’s amazing what you can do with these. So If you share my fascination then take a look at our jobs section! At Little Smart Things we take composites serious, and it’s not going to be boring. We promise!

Hope to hear from you!

    Want to make drones?

    Little Smart Things needs skilled persons to produce our drones and are looking for a production technician with experience in composites and epoxy.

    If you have worked with carbonfiber, aramid, glassfiber and/or epoxy, and you love working in an environment, where initiative and teamspirit is greatly valued, this could be the job for job.

    Little Smart Things is located on Bornholm – an island in the Baltic Sea. The company was started January 1. 2013 and now employ 13 dedicated people, and we expect to be more soon. Little Smart Things is a start-up with a relaxed tone and an enthusiastic atmosphere. We are ambitious with our work and we are constantly on the cutting edge of technology.

    Your primary work will be in production of wings and fuselages for our unmanned aircraft. Work will typically be manufacturing and preparation of composite structures and also mechanical assembly. We work with precision electro mechanics – often small scale – and the tolerances are small. We have a very skilled team of developers, whom you will be working closely with.

    Your skills must include experience with composites. Your background could be glass fiber on boats, models in carbon fiber – or something we haven’t thought of.

    Besides composites you could also have the following skills:

    • Experience with small scale mechanics
    • CNC manufacturing
    • CAD and CAM
    • Quality insurance

      What do clouds and drones from Little Smart Things have in common?

      Cumulus One in the air

      The answer is simple: They both look beautiful in the sky :)

      At Little Smart Things, we have been trying to find something original and good to name our drones. It had to be less technical than FW1 and MR1.

      It turned out, we only had to gaze at the sky to find what we were looking for.

      Our fixed wing drone formerly known as FW1 is now called Cumulus One. Our multi-roter MR1; Nimbo One.

      Hopefully you’ll like the names as much as we do.
