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 towards certifying the aircraft with the Federal Aviation Administration, high-rate production, and preparing for commercialization with launch targeted in select markets for 2024.

You will broaden your exposure to the company by supporting many of our Air Operations 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?
