Amazon Drone Jobs Require Extraordinary Skills

It looks like Amazon’s founder, Jeff Bezos is indeed hell-bent on pushing with his revolutionary package delivery project using drones, come what may. The company is said to be looking for candidates for its drone jobs requiring extraordinary skills.

This should be the case, according to George Anders of Forbes, judging from some fascinating clues emerge from a peek at Amazon’s latest job listings, he wrote.
Now those clues are found in the job descriptions of the listed job openings, and according to Anders, the jaunty tone of those listings –  for  full-time communications manager and a full-time patent lawyer  underscore Bezos’s willingness to charge ahead, no matter what everyone else is saying.

Of the three listings, the communications manager one is perhaps most telling—they’re looking for someone who can “drive massive awareness for Amazon Prime Air. The listing also says that the ideal candidate will “successfully manage complex, fast-moving, and unexpected communications challenges,” which, as Anders points out, sounds like code for “will have to explain what the heck we should do if one of these crashes.” Read more here

Amazon is also said to looking for software engineers who can combine “superb technical, research, and analytical capabilities with a demonstrated ability to get complex hardware, soft are, embedded, mobile, and mission-critical systems up and running quickly and effectively.” (Motherboard)

Around the country, drone meetup groups have sprung up such as the New York City Drone User Group (NYCDUG),  DC Area Drone User Group (DC DUG), North Texas Drone User Group, SF Drones Startup Meetup. These are organizations for amateur and professional drone users that seeks to promote the responsible use of flying robots for community service, artistic, entrepreneurial, and recreational purposes. They are members of the Drone User Group Network, an association of community organizations that promote the use of civilian drone technology for the benefit of humanity.

Speculations are also rife among members of these meetup groups as to what those drone jobs needed by Amazon truly entail. To wit, “Drones right now are like early automobiles before roads and traffic laws. Yes, they are potentially dangerous to the operator and everyone else who happens to be the wrong place at the wrong time. But they are not exactly the end of life as we know it.” (Bingxie Zhang)

Perhaps, what can be said about Jeff Bezos is he is a fearless visionary, daring in the face of uncertainty, a pragmatic businessman. It is hoped that all goes well with his revolutionary drones for package delivery so as to prove skeptics wrong.
