💡 About Us


At Hammer, our goal is to build the aerial tools of the future. As humans, what differentiates us is our ability to make useful tools that make our lives better - hammer stones were some of the earliest tools we built.

A drone is like a hammer stone but for the 21st century!

With that as our north star, our current software products Hammer App and Hammer Hub help drone professionals and Enterprise drone programmes collect quick and precise inspection data for a number of different infrastructure assets: roofs, facades, powerlines, towers, solar panels, wind turbines and more.


Having deployed our software globally, we're quickly moving into a number of different drone verticals. If you'd like to join a fast-growing team and shape the future of aerial data and mobile robotics, please get in touch with us below.


We look forward to hearing from you!



🚀⚙ Our Culture

  • We take care of our people above everything else.

  • We take extreme ownership of our work - celebrate successes & learn from failure.

  • We find the right balance between things (speed vs quality, personal goals vs company goals, building relationships vs disagreeing)

  • We prioritise consistency over extremes - 1 hour over 5 days vs 5 hours in 1 day.

  • We voice things when they go wrong or when they are about to go wrong.

  • We take our time on irreversible decisions, move fast on reversible decisions.

  • We realise when things are not our core competency and actively seek advice.

  • When things go wrong, we analyze the leading events, not the person behind it.

  • When things go right, we analyze leading events, and reward the people behind it.

  • We build empathy for other people’s roles and responsibilities.

  • We go above and beyond in making users & customers happy.

  • We find creative solutions in limited resources - time, capital and people.

  • We see Hammer as an opportunity to leave our mark on the drone industry.
