Looking for work? DroneBase is hiring.

DroneBase recently started working with one of the largest insurance providers in the U.S. to perform rooftop inspections. But they have a problem: they have too much work.

That’s right—DroneBase is being flooded with requests for aerial inspections, and they have a huge need for certified drone pilots right now.

Are you a certified drone pilot available to work in one of the areas listed below? 

Sign up now and get immediately to work, or read on to learn more.

Can You Help?

This is where you come in. If you’re a certified drone pilot who has passed the Part 107 exam, DroneBase needs your help.

DroneBase’s primary need is currently in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but they’re also looking for certified pilots in:

  • Austin, TX
  • San Antonio, TX
  • Houston, TX
  • El Paso, TX
  • Denver, CO
  • Fort Collins, CO
  • Colorado Springs, CO
  • Albuquerque, NM
  • Oklahoma City,OK
  • Tulsa, OK
  • Wichita, KS

Even if you don’t live in one of these cities, the good news is that DroneBase’s need is growing rapidly, and it looks like they’ll be looking for pilots in other cities soon.

The Details

These rooftop inspection jobs will:

  • Take an average of 20-30 minutes on-site
  • Have a guaranteed payout of $70 per home (no travel or other reimbursements included)

The upside here is that the volume of work is high, and the work is quick and repeatable. No editing or post-production work is required, and those pilots already doing this work are getting as many inspections a day as they can handle, based entirely on their availability. The work is there for the taking.

Go to DroneBase now if you’d like to sign up.

Requirements

The requirements are pretty simple. You must be a certified Part 107 pilot (and be able to prove it). Make sure you fill out the Pilot profile, including your license number and drone system when signing up. Ideal candidates will have some experience doing aerial inspections, but as long as you are licensed, DroneBase will almost certainly be interested in taking you on for this work.

About DroneBase

Back in December DroneBase announced a revenue projection of 700% for this year. That is in-frickin-credible, and a testament both to the booming nature of the drone industry, and also to all the hard work DroneBase has done to find jobs for drone pilots.

In general, DroneBase has two different ways pilots can earn money (the rooftop inspection work discussed above would be included under #2):

1) Pano Missions

This is kind of like a stock footage model. DroneBase is amassing a library of panoramic shots they can offer to their thousands of clients. You fly Pano Missions, and if clients purchase the footage, you ultimately get paid a percentage of what your footage is sold for.

2) Client Missions

Client Missions 

Depending on your location and skill level, DroneBase will send you client-specific missions. Not only will you get support from DroneBase during the course of your mission, but they handle all the post-processing. Simply upload your raw pictures and videos into their platform, and get paid with 1-2 days.
