Joby Overview

Located in Northern California, the Joby Aviation team has been steadily working toward our goal of providing safe, affordable, fully electric air transportation that is accessible to everyone. Imagine an air taxi that takes off vertically, then quietly and quickly carries you over the congestion below, giving you back that time you’d otherwise spend sitting in traffic. Technology has advanced to the point where designing and operating an all-electric aircraft is completely viable. Our team has been discreetly designing and flight testing this vehicle and is looking for talented individuals to see it through certification and high rate production.


As an operations intern you will join the Joby Air Operations team in support of our many departments including Commercial Air Operations, Government Operations, Flight Training and Standards, Maintenance Operations or Safety. Each of these teams are expanding rapidly as we develop programs for the launch of our air service. Do you have a passion for airlines, operations, flight training, flight simulation, safety, maintenance, technical writing, courseware development or instructional design? Are you interested in project management, business planning, financial modeling or flight administration? There are many opportunities available, and each will prepare you for a potential full-time position in Operations upon graduation. Internships are 3-9 months and are available year-round.

  • Job responsibilities commensurate to the role and to prepare current students or recent graduates for future operations positions at Joby
