Amazing R/C Job Opportunity

Guys I know this is off topic, but as a long time memeber here I know that many of you are the best of the best when it comes to building and flying. So I had to put this out to you guys as I feel very lucky to be doing what I do for a living.

My work asked me to send out an email to my local club where they found me.
Here that email:

Hello ---- ,
I was hoping you could pass this on to the club members as I feel itís once in a lifetime job opportunity.

As many of you know I have been extremely lucky to get a job building and flying small UAVís everyday as my job. Iíve been on the job 3 Ĺ months and really love it, every day is exciting and I work with an amazing team of talented friendly people.
I canít go into details but itís an amazing project that will change the world for the better and the right person may get to be a part of it.

I spend my days working on prototype planes, ordering parts and test flying. I have to pinch myself often as I feel truly blessed to be doing what I love for a job.

My work has asked me to check with my clubs to see if there is other interested r/c pilot- builders that they can hire. I have attached the job desciption but would like to add a few things here.

Donít be to scared by the description, what this person will be doing is much like building a composite ARF-Kit remote control electric plane.
Installing servos, electric motors, ESC, battlers, gluing in formers with aerospace epoxies, soldering
You will be taught how to lay up some composites, lots of dremel work, shop clean up
You will also get to learn about auto pilot systems, how to install them, and make up the wire harnesses for them

Then comes the real fun!
Helping as a safety pilot you will have to take control of the planes if needed, so being a good fixed wing pilot is a must
This position could lead to many flights per day

This is a confidential project so until a non-disclosure agreement is signed I canít go into details but trust me when I say itís an amazing place to work and with really great people.
We are a small start up with about 20 employees at this point, we are funded by some of the biggest names in silicon valley, the job site is undisclosed but near San Mateo

If you are interested you will need to send me a resume please include your r/c back ground along with work history you see fit for this job.
If you have pictures of planes you have built please include them.

I will pass them on to my boss, there will be a phone interview and then an interview on site.

Thank you
Ronnie Romiti


Hope you guys don't mind me posting this, maybe it's a long shot, some of you would have to relocate but I know many guys would to do a job they love everyday.

Send me a PM if you are interested and I will give you my email address, I have attached the job description

If you don't want this thread here I will have it removed and apologize in advanced but I think many of you would appreaciate that I was trying to help out old friends that I know love the hobby

Thanks guys
