Job Description


SkySpecs entered the wind energy industry in 2014 as an automated drone inspection company. After quickly earning a leading position in the United States and European markets, conducting over 21,000 onshore and offshore inspections for the biggest wind energy owners in the space, we grew our services and capabilities to offer a full-wrap operations and maintenance suite of solutions. What this means to the industry, is that we can now present multi-layered solutions to our customers that include analytics, wind turbine blade expertise, collaborative software to manage and analyze massive amounts of data, spot trends, create plans for high-cost repair campaigns, collaborate on complex projects, and – ultimately – reduce the cost and risk within the industry, making wind energy more attainable for the world. In the last 18 months, SkySpecs has tripled its staff, opened a new office in Amsterdam, moved to a new space in Ann Arbor, and welcomed several key players in the industry to our team.
