The sky is open for business.

As of last week, the number of registered drone pilots has eclipsed the number of traditional pilots in the U.S.

At Skyward, we’re helping them fly safely.

Our best-in-class commercial drone software empowers all those pilots to safely share the airspace. Pros and hobbyists alike rely on Skyward’s drone airspace map because it’s easy to use and validated by aviation experts.

But we’re also much more than an airspace map: The Skyward platform allows businesses and corporations to efficiently manage commercial drone operations, including pilots, aircraft, and batteries.

By giving businesses the tools to manage and scale compliant, insurable drone operations, Skyward is helping to keep the skies safe and building an entire industry.

Sound interesting?

“Skyward is an exciting place to be an engineer because we engage legitimately hard problems that span from computational geometry algorithms, to in-house development of offline GIS caching systems, to micro-services architectures tying everything together,” said Dana Maher, who leads our team of geospatial experts. “We find ourselves working with some of the most interesting technology out there and also building new tools to provide GIS for Internet of Things.”

“The thing I like most about what we do is the level of thought that goes into the products we put out,” said Jake Nylund, computer engineer. “From in-depth data sourcing by subject matter experts to the UI/UX design to make a very complex system accessible to the user.”

Skyward is a member of Portland, Oregon’s vibrant technology community. We offer a generous benefits package that includes a bonus to purchase your very own drone.
