Rain acknowledges the essential role of wildfire in healthy ecosystems. However: our ecosystem is not presently healthy. The obvious, necessary solution to climate change is reducing human carbon emissions. Until that happens, wildfire is both a symptom and a cause of climate change: every year, wildfires release 8 billion tons of carbon globally. We need tools to adapt to a changing climate, and the Rain System is one in a suite of tools that includes controlled burns, innovative policies, and ongoing forest management. We believe uncontrolled wildfires destroying communities, livelihoods and lives are unnecessary to meet our climate objectives.
Are you an experienced "swiss army knife" experimental aircraft builder 🛩️🚁🛠️ looking for a unique opportunity? Are you comfortable fabricating custom aircraft modifications, installing harnesses, and upfitting/upgrading components? Do you enjoy solving challenging problems, spending time in the hangar, and thrive under pressure? This might be the opportunity for you!
Every wildfire starts small.🔥Rain contains wildfires within 10 minutes of ignition using a network of autonomous aircraft permanently installed throughout high risk regions. We are fire sprinklers for the forest. 🌧️
We are looking for a skilled mechanic to improve, modify, maintain, and repair our prototype autonomous firefighting aircraft. You will be responsible for troubleshooting issues and fixing them while aiming for maximum reliability and functionality.
Must be willing to travel up to 25% of the time.
