For many developing nations, the vast majority of the population is served by community-level healthcare centres. These centers are oftentimes highly disconnected from larger healthcare hubs and efficient transportation infrastructure.
The Aerlift Team balances a wide variety of backgrounds and skill sets – combining technical engineering expertise with experience in public healthcare intervention. Our technical team stems from the aerospace sector with multiple pending patents. Our implementation team has spent years working alongside international governments developing digital health platforms.
Together with our humanitarian, corporate, and government partners, Aerlift is extending the reach of healthcare through technical and social innovation.

Drone Robotics and Automation
The intern will work on digitizing our drone platform. Aerlift is developing custom delivery drones and we are flight testing early prototypes. The drones must acquire and deliver payloads with a high degree of automation. As such a large part of the drone design is the payload delivery system involving mechanical actuation and embedded system software development. The intern will help develop these robotic functions to automate the process of loading and unloading the drone. The job will require skills in coding for embedded systems as well as familiarity with digital design software such as CAD and FEA packages. At the same time it is also a flexible and open-ended project in many ways with lots of room for creative freedom and exploration of new ideas that may be initiated by the intern. Applications should have some background in automation and robotics. Additionally, interest in drones is a plus.
