Joby Overview

Located in Northern California, the Joby Aviation team is steadily working toward our goal of creating an affordable, all-electric air transportation system. Imagine an air taxi that takes off vertically, then quietly and quickly carries you over the traffic congestion below, giving you back the time that otherwise would have spent sitting in traffic. Since 2009, our team has been making this dream a reality, designing and flight testing a prototype aircraft capable of serving in a network of electric air taxis. We’re looking for talented individuals to join our team as we push onwards toward certifying the aircraft with the Federal Aviation Administration and preparing for commercialization with launch targeted in select markets for 2024.


Joby Aviation’s vision is to save 1 billion people an hour every day through electric powered flight. To that end, the Product Intelligence team is developing tools to model what this transportation system should be in order to provide a real-world solution that is accessible and sustainable and provides a clear value proposition for users and communities. Inventing new ways to move around. It is a formidable challenge when you consider the complex, interacting factors that need to be simultaneously optimized: flight performance, noise, airspace integration, weather, economics, fleet optimization, contingency management … all presenting their own set of constraints. We are looking for an Aviation Cost Engineer to build models and optimize operating cost for this unique new vehicle and business model.
