Matternet has developed best-in-class technology for on-demand, aerial delivery in urban environments. We provide our technology platform-as-a-service to healthcare and logistics organizations.

To date, Matternet technology has enabled 10,000+ commercial drone flights.

In March 2017, we became the first company in the world to be authorized for commercial beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations of drone logistics networks over cities in Switzerland. In March 2019, Matternet and UPS announced a partnership to provide drone delivery services to US healthcare systems, starting with WakeMed Health in NC and most recently at Wake Forest Baptist Health. In October 2019, Matternet's technology enabled the first (full Part 135 Standard certification) FAA-Approved Drone Airline, UPS Flight Forward (USPFF), providing fast expansion to healthcare facilities across the US. September of 2020 launched our first partnership on the Asian continent, with Japan Airlines. We rang in 2021 by expanding European operations with Labor Berlin, initiating the first ever urban BVLOS medical drone delivery network in the largest city of the EU.

Join us as we build the future today, creating the next paradigm of transportation!

Working at Matternet

We believe our Values speak for themself, and hope they align with yours!

We are safe above all else: Our technology can save or take a person’s life. We do not negotiate on the safety of the systems we design, build, and operate.

We deliver: We work smart, not just hard. If our efforts are not yielding results, we pause and regroup. We deliver our product so that our system can deliver its payload, safely and reliably.

We are a team: We win together and lose together. We are one another’s toughest critics, biggest challengers, and loudest supporters. We speak candidly and listen humbly. We are accountable to each other for our own contribution to the success of our mission.

We are creative: We are innovative and inventive. We have the courage and discipline to explore the non-obvious path and to create original thoughts and things. We search relentlessly for aesthetic, simple solutions.

We are deliberate: We are rigorous, intentional, and detail-oriented in our work. We plan upfront to grease the path to execution and prevent mistakes. We openly recognize and reflect on failure to improve our product and processes.

We make the world better: We design and build products to give everyone everywhere access to physical goods. With zero emissions aerial transport and ground infrastructure, we preserve our planet.

Diversity and Inclusion

Over the last year, Matternet has nearly doubled the number of womxn in Engineering roles specifically, as well as across and the entire company. We have also employed software tools such as SeekOut and Triplebyte to ensure bias (unconscious, or otherwise) is accounted for in our sourcing/hiring efforts. We understand that diversity comes in all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, and these varied perspectives are critical as we create a product to serve a global customer base.

In order to foster a welcoming, inclusive community we create opportunities for connection, eg. employing everyone's favorite Slack app: @donut, new hire introductions, regular 1:1s, team (virtual, and/or socially-distanced, COVID-safe) outings, softball, hobby-based Slack channels (#DiversityMatters #MatterChefs #Pets #Winning). Pre-COVID, we held team-wide quarterly celebrations.
