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 is searching for a metrology engineer with experience dimensionally inspecting parts, assemblies, and tools in a development and production setting. This person should be well versed in all aspects of the metrology process from creating inspection templates to generating inspection reports.


  • Dimensionally inspect components, equipment, tooling, and assemblies per engineering drawing. 
  • Build metrology documentations to accurately define the process for cross-functional teams (equipment & tooling, quality, production, etc.).
  • Be a subject matter expert in dimensional metrology tools such as CMM, GD&T, and inspection techniques.
  • Define metrology specifications required for inspection and gauge fixtures for use in metrology applications and a production setting. 
  • Develop, plan and execute engineering projects.
  • Solve complex problems, take a new perspective on existing solutions, and exercise judgment based on the analysis of multiple sources of information.
  • Review engineering drawings for inspectability.


  • B.S. in Engineering or 4+ years in a related field. 
  • 1 yr of related experience as a metrology engineer or dimensional inspector in automotive, aerospace, or similar manufacturing industries.
