Manufacturing Team This role has no specific closing date Melbourne

About Swoop Aero

Swoop Aero was founded to transform how the world moves essential supplies. 

We were proudly the first commercial enterprise globally to deliver life-saving vaccines via drone. We focus and staff our operations locally to enable us to have sustainable global impact, and have expanded our impact across the world, having run medical drone logistics operations in four countries.

The important work we’re doing is shifting the future of transport and having an immediate impact on the lives of people who live in the remote communities where we operate. Many companies say they have an impact, but we really mean it. We’re based in Melbourne and continuing to open and operate in developing markets globally with our autonomous, electric, 3D printed aircraft underpinning transformational health outcomes.  We’ve got big plans and the necessary focus to shift the paradigm in both currently developing and developed markets. 

To do this, we’ve brought together a team of eternally optimistic and resourceful ‘doers’ to tackle these seemingly insurmountable problems and make all this become a reality.
