About Us

At Hammer, we're building the aerial tools and intelligence 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.
