We were able to ask them some questions about their company. Let’s find out more…
What’s the story behind the creation of your company?
Wingtra was founded in 2016 as a spin-off of Prof. Dr. Roland Siegwart’s Autonomous Systems Lab, at ETH Zurich in Switzerland. The project is rooted in years of ambitious robotic research in vertical take-off & landing technology of tail-sitting UAVs where its control algorithms enable autonomous transition from hovering to plane-like flying.
At Wingtra, we develop, produce and commercialize drones that combine the ease of use of agile multicopters with the long range of high endurance fixed-wing aircrafts. Since our market entry in early 2017, we have grown to become an international company with distribution partners in 6 continents, more than 100 customer flights every week, and a very first vertical take-off and landing drone with professional aerial photography sensors which we are selling to a lot of happy customers in different industries.
What’s your company culture like?
A very unique and special culture which you will probably not find that easy anywhere else. We start our week all together with the so-called “Monday Meeting” were every team highlights the most important events of the week before and we end our week all together with our weekly Friday Beers in our cozy office which is located in the heart of Zurich. In between, we have lots of team activities like running group, yoga classes, tech talks, ping-pong games or get to know the team on 1on1 lunches.
