Located in Northern California, the team at Joby Aviation is driven by our goal of creating an affordable, all-electric air transportation system. Imagine a piloted air taxi that takes off vertically, then quietly carries you and your fellow passengers over the congested city streets below, enabling you to spend more time with the people and places that matter most. Since 2009, our team has worked steadily to make this dream a reality. We’ve designed and tested many generations of prototype aircraft capable of serving in a network of electric air taxis. We’re looking for talented, committed individuals to join our team as we push onwards toward certifying the Joby aircraft with the Federal Aviation Administration, scaling our manufacturing, and preparing to launch commercial service in 2025.


This role will require you to provide world class financial support as we develop partnerships and initiatives that will accelerate aircraft development and go-to-market efforts. You will work with internal company stakeholders to develop financial models and provide analysis and advice to optimally structure these initiatives. Strong communication skills, an entrepreneurial mindset and business/financial acumen are required for success, as this role works across all levels and functions of the Joby organization.  

You will report directly to Joby’s Head of Finance, will work closely with the CFO and support the wider Strategy, Policy, Operations, Legal, Finance and Product teams. You will help build and manage large scale partnerships from the ground up, and your contribution will be key to unlocking the delivery of this exciting new Urban Air Mobility service.

The ideal candidate will have high level financial modeling skills, a firm understanding of finance and accounting concepts, superb analytical abilities, excellent customer service skills and a voracious appetite for learning and improvement. The ideal candidate is an effective presenter and can balance getting the details right while moving quickly in a results-driven environment.
