After completing his master's degree at Stanford, Jon decided to forge a career in embedded systems that would wed his dual expertise in software and hardware. Since then, he has helped advance the state of the art in industries ranging from musical instruments to unmanned aerial systems. Outside of work at SkyRyse, he hones his skills at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and rock climbing, a passion he shares with his wife.
After a 6:30 AM workout, Jon heads to the office by 9:30, in time for the team’s meeting. Then, he works on writing software for embedded systems, taking on anything that actually flies in terms of software or hardware. This combination of aviation and electronics means Jon also sorts out guidance and sensor fusion—but flight tests are his favorite.
