Qualification: Degree or MCA in Computer Science or Computer Engineering or Degree in Electrical / Electronics & Communication / or equivalent

Job Location:  Navi Mumbai


In 2008 when the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai was under attack from terrorists the team at ideaForge (iF) decided to build its drones for security & surveillance, 4 years after their first attempt, in IIT Bombay, at building a quad-copter. In 2009, ideaForge launched India’s first autonomous UnCrewed Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and created the world’s smallest and lightest autopilot at that time.

ideaForge has pioneered the drones space in India. It unlocked the collective imagination of the nation with its early prototype, in the movie “3 idiots”. iF leads the Indian market as the largest player in the domain with focus on Security & Surveillance and Mapping & Surveying. Its drones have completed over 200,000 missions by its customers and are utilized today at the rate of an iF drone taking off every 6 mins or less. All the Indian Defence, Central & State Police forces, several Govt. Departments, PSUs and Industries use iF drones on a daily basis to either help secure our nation or boost productivity.

Having built the entire tech stack by itself, iF is known for delivering autonomous drones that promise best-in-class performance and reliability. iF’s drones are ‘Built like a Bird, Tested like a Tank’, to ensure that its systems can survive almost any terrain, altitude and weather conditions in the Indian subcontinent. It is common to hear from operators of its drones that it’s drones allow the user to focus on the mission rather than the flying part. The National IP Award, 2020 is a good testament to the innovative and first principles work being done at ideaForge.

As iF pursues its vision to drive the adoption of drones in our daily lives, it intends to create deeply integrated solutions and new business models for aerial intelligence (surveillance, mapping and inspections) and is also toying with the idea of aerial mobility (human and material).

If you are someone who often gets complimented for being wise beyond years, if you are someone who can put any amount of effort to get the work done and if you are someone who does not give up, then we look forward to meeting you.
