Located in Northern California, the team at Joby Aviation is driven by our goal of creating an affordable, all-electric air transportation system. Imagine a piloted air taxi that takes off vertically, then quietly carries you and your fellow passengers over the congested city streets below, enabling you to spend more time with the people and places that matter most. Since 2009, our team has worked steadily to make this dream a reality. We’ve designed and tested many generations of prototype aircraft capable of serving in a network of electric air taxis. We’re looking for talented, committed individuals to join our team as we push onwards toward certifying the Joby aircraft with the Federal Aviation Administration, scaling our manufacturing, and preparing to launch commercial service in 2025.


Joby Aviation is looking for talented mechanics, technicians, and fabricators to join our Final Integration and Assembly team. In this role, you will be trained to assemble all the parts, components, harnesses, avionics, interiors, landing gear and systems into the final aircraft as needed to prepare it for flight. If you are hardworking and excited about participating in the development of next –generation, cutting-edge aircraft, and if you take pride in doing high-quality work, then we want to talk to you. On our team, you will contribute to the manufacture and assembly of an innovative aircraft that will change the future of flying. At Joby we have been hard at work creating groundbreaking developments towards our goal of providing safe, affordable, fully electric air transportation that is accessible to everyone. We are not shy about our goal to change the world. Our battery-powered aircraft takes off vertically like a helicopter then transitions to the efficient configuration of wing-borne flight as an airplane and it operates significantly quieter than any aircraft before it. It will transport passengers quickly and efficiently over the congestion below, landing on a vertiport close to your destination while giving you back the time you’d otherwise have wasted in traffic. We are a tight-knit team that likes to work hard, and we enjoy what we do. We have multiple openings for several roles at different experience levels. Let us know how your passion and experience can help us build the future of air transportation!
