Joby Overview

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.


This role sits on the team responsible for the mechanical design of system electronics, which includes onboard computers, flight console, and aircraft controls. The team has one of the most complex mechanical assemblies in the entire aircraft. Specifically, a person in this role will design mechanical parts and assemblies for the systems described above. This individual will also work with adjacent departments such as modeling, testing, electrical engineering, and manufacturing to produce a design that can be manufactured and certified.

Compensation at Joby is a combination of base pay and Restricted Stock Units (RSUs). The target base pay for this position is $79,900 - $130,900/year. The compensation package will be determined by job-related knowledge, skills, and experience.
