The drone industry is thriving, and there has never been a better time to find work in this market. As more companies start using drone technologies for everything from drone deliveries, monitoring crops to inspecting buildings and infrastructure, the demand for talented people is increasing exponentially. Many skills are needed, from hardware and software engineering to business development, operations, marketing and HR.

In 2022, hardware companies represented almost half of the drone job openings, while drone service companies accounted for 37%, and the remaining 17% were software companies (source: Drone Industry Insights). Drone services had twice as many job openings as they did four years ago. The industry is maturing, resulting in many new use case applications, and to be successful, they need to hire the right talent.

The industry is continuing its rapid growth with countries like the USA leading open positions. Germany ranks second for new hiring in drone-related sectors at 15%, followed by India and Australia. In the last few years, countries like Germany and India have been on a hiring spree for drone-related jobs. This year was no different as these two, along with Australia, started recruiting more people.


In recent years, drone companies have grown thanks to improved regulations, technological advances, and increasing demand from businesses and consumers. This growth has led to a corresponding increase in the number of drone jobs available, making it a more attractive career option for those with the right skills and experience.
