About us:
Daedalean is a Zürich-based startup founded by experienced engineers who want to completely revolutionize air travel within the next decade. We combine computer vision, deep learning, and robotics to develop full “level-5” autonomy for flying vehicles, both existing aircraft and the electric VTOLs that you may have seen in the media.

Your role:
In collaboration with our team of engineers, machine learning researchers and certification experts, prove performance guarantees of safety-critical aviation systems based on machine learning.

Areas of the work include:

    • Generalization bounds for deep neural networks.
    • Data completeness and correctness (high-dimensional data), impact analysis of distributions shift.
    • Robustness in development and operations (input and data robustness).
    • Analysis of dynamical systems and their filtering.
    • Monte-Carlo analyses based on complex statistical models (e.g. Bayesian networks).
    • Statistical hypothesis testing.

Preferred Qualifications:

    • PhD degree in theoretical Machine Learning.
    • Proven experience in the domain of probability, statistics.
    • Hands-on experience with Machine Learning in the industry setting.
    • Creativity as we work on problems that no one has solved before.


    • A team of experienced engineers and researchers, who joined us from most recognized companies and institutions.
    • Difficult and interesting problems to solve. 
    • Test flights in the Swiss Alps for you to join.
    • Stock options.
    • Pilot license subsidy.
    • Hybrid work setting.
    • Learning & Development budget: visit conferences of your choice.
    • Gym membership.
