Mechanical Engineer (h/f)

SKY-HERO is looking for a Mechanical Engineer, based in Brussels and starting as soon as possible.

SKY-HERO is a dynamic, flexible, fast-growing company specialised in drones. At SKY-HERO, we conceive, design, produce and commercialise drones and robots with a target market in civil security worldwide.
