Working at Microdrones
If you’re interested in a career at a premiere global aerial mapping technology company, first you’ll want to learn more about the company. Microdrones provides fully integrated, aerial, end-to-end drone surveying equipment and is part of mdGroup, a leading technology company in aerial data collection equipment and data processing software. Schubeler Technologies and mdInfinity are also both a part of mdGroup. Schübeler Technologies develops and manufactures EDF-Systems for high performance, efficiency and reliability and mdInfinity software transforms aerial raw data into valuable high-quality digital twins. Together, these companies are united cooperatively by a mission to be the world leader in geospatial data collection and processing technologies.
Currently, Microdrones employs more than 260 personnel, providing a sales, support and distribution network spanning six continents.
Eva Spexard, the Microdrones manager, HR EMEA & global recruiting is one of the main presenters in the recruitment webinar and offers her insight into working at Microdrones.
“We're much more than what many people know, like little drones for taking pictures or videos,” said Spexard. “That's not what we do. We really offer fully integrated solutions for geospatial professionals, and that brings our organization and development team to a completely different level than other solutions.”
Microdrones offices and representatives are located all over the world with our main locations being Vaudreuil-Dorion (Canada), Rome (US), Siegen and Paderborn (Germany), Toulouse (France), Dubai (UAE) and Foshan (China). But some of our positions (mainly Sales and Software Development) are very flexible in location and do not necessarily have to be performed out of one of our offices.
According to Spexard, there are many advantages to working for a global company. “We have a lot of different entities all over the world where people can work and we also have a lot of employees all over the world in countries where we don't have entities,” she explains. “That benefits many of our employees because you don't have to necessarily look for a specific location where you live. For example, in a software position or a sales position, we can discuss where you can be located to fulfill your role and responsibilities.
WHEN TO APPLY
So, are you in the market for a new career right now or looking to expand your professional options? Even though our job adverts are very specific and give you a clear idea of what the “ideal” candidate looks like, we are ALWAYS looking for the right people out there to join our journey! Therefore, the best time to apply is NOW! We might not have an open position for your profile right now but maybe in a month or two that will change.
“We are really always looking for great people,” said Spexard. We have a lot of openings, but we are also looking for the right profile and people with the right motivation because we really believe in giving our employees the opportunity to grow and be a part of the Microdrones family.”
