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.

In this role, you will be responsible for trimming and finishing composite parts to meet specified requirements and quality standards. Your expertise in composite materials and precision trimming techniques will play a crucial role in ensuring the final quality sign off and fit of the composite components.

  • Conduct quality inspections to identify any defects, imperfections, or irregularities in the trimmed parts. 
  • Collaborate with the production team to meet production schedules and maintain workflow efficiency. 


  • High School Diploma or GED equivalent. 
  • Able to lift assemblies weighing up to 50 lbs. 
  • Able to become certified to wear a respirator. 
  • Perform all tasks in a safe and responsible manner.
