BRINC – Senior/Principal Full-Stack Software Engineer – sUAS News – The Business of Drones

BRINC Drones helps first responders with products that quickly and effectively respond to emergencies. Our technology allows first responders to get eyes and ears on what’s happening in indoor structures when it’s too dangerous for people to enter – whether it be a fire, medical emergencies, violence, or search and rescue. In March 2023, we released the Lemur 2, our latest and most advanced drone, and we started shipping it to customers the same year.

In addition to launching more advanced drones, we’re also expanding our software ecosystem into realtime monitoring and fleet management, and we recently shipped the first version of our first web app: LiveOps. This app gives drone operators and first response teams access to real-time live-streaming drone data such as visual and thermal video feeds, 3D map data via point clouds, and a myriad of drone telemetry – it’s essentially a web-based drone fleet management software. But our vision isn’t just fleet management; LiveOps represents a critical part of BRINC’s transition from a company that just sells drones to a company that sells entire drone programs: we want to build out the entire drone ecosystem (both hardware and software) for our customers.

It’s an ambitious goal, but it’s one that we feel confident about – we’ve got a lot of interest from customers in what we’ve built so far, and we are seeking a full-stack engineer to join our engineering team and own the development of this web app.


  • Design and develop new APIs for robust in-app user data management, handling permissions, authentication, device management, and whatever else we need to build
  • Enhance our real-time capabilities by building on top of internal WebSocket APIs and WebRTC for an innovative drone fleet management experience
  • Integrate with third-party APIs, enriching our web application with external features and services
  • Collaborate with our UX design team to conceive and implement intuitive interfaces, both novel and extensions of the existing ones
  • Engage in a rapid and agile development cycle with product and design teams, along with field users, to define and refine product requirements, specifications, and objectives

Basic Requirements

  • A Bachelors, Masters, or PhD in computer science or a related field, 6+ years of full-stack industry experience, and deep proficiency across the web application software stack (from the DB to the JS/HTML/CSS and back)
  • Excellent attention to detail, especially around testing, software design patterns, and the tradeoffs associated with scalability, performance, and security
  • You take a creative approach to problem-solving and have exceptional analytical skills
  • You thrive in a dynamic environment with changing needs and requirements
  • You want to work independently and in a small team, take initiative, and communicate effectively across the organization

Bonus Points If You Have

  • Prior experience building real-time web applications on top of WebSocket APIs and WebRTC
  • Prior experience integrating with 3rd-party APIs and an understanding of the challenges that come with building these types of integrations.

Projects You May Work On

  • Adding new end-to-end features to the LiveOps web app
  • Improving the performance, stability, and existing functionality of the LiveOps
  • Building BRINC Pilot; a new web app experience to let users fly drones over the internet
  • Partnering with BRINC platform engineers to work on real-time data streaming, processing, and storage APIs
