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.


This engineer will play a key role in a small, fast-moving team and participate in architecture design, requirements authoring, and implementation review for our electric-powered, fly-by-wire aircraft. This engineer will work closely with the hardware, mechanical, integration, and flight-testing teams to design, develop, test and improve system-level behaviors. An understanding of aviation and embedded robotics applications will be used to develop software systems appropriate to our fly-by-wire aircraft.


We are looking for a talented Integration Engineer with exceptional requirements-authoring and systems skills to work with our core flight framework that flies our aircraft! This is the framework that powers all the software systems on the aircraft. The successful candidate will act as one of the Subject Matter Experts (SME) and work with system engineers and software engineers to decompose equipment-level and system requirements into high-level and low-level software requirements in compliance with DO-178C. They will work with the testing teams to design ways to test requirements and assist in creating detailed design documentation.
