    About you and the Role  

    • Zipline is building a global network of Distribution Centers from which our battery-powered autonomous aircraft deliver lifesaving medical supplies to patients in some of the most difficult to reach places on Earth. 
    • As we build new Distribution Centers, we must also build strong teams of flight operators and arm them with the knowledge and skills to keep those high-tech systems operational in harsh, remote environments. 
    • As an Electrical Training Instructor (ETI), you will be responsible for conducting and updating our training program for all of the Nest Electrical Technicians. 
    • As an ETI you will deliver the training and ensure the transfer of skills needed to perform the installation and maintenance on our systems will be done safely and to our high Zipline standards.
    • Through this process you will work closely with engineers, manufacturing technicians, and flight operators to gain a deep technical understanding of Zipline’s technology, the current procedures, as well as the pain points and gaps. 
    • You’ll then need to draw on industry best practices and come up with creative new solutions that fit Zipline’s unique needs but allow our team to remain safe and operating at peak efficiency.  
    • You must be resourceful and scrappy when needed, but always maintain an exceptional standard of safety, care and professionalism in the training you deliver. 
    • At Zipline, we live our core values of transparency, servant leadership, and customer centricity. Our team’s collaborative nature combined with a mission-driven environment enables us to tackle seemingly impossible challenges together. 
    • In this role, you will be serving and supporting operators at our Distribution Centers to reach the ambitious but necessary goal of 100% operational uptime, because every person who relies on Zipline for access to life-saving medicines deserves nothing less. 

    N.B: Please note that we are open to this person being based in any country we have operations in Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Rwanda, Côte d'Ivoire).
