Joby Overview

Located in Northern California, the Joby Aviation team has been steadily working toward our goal of providing safe, affordable, fully electric air transportation that is accessible to everyone. Imagine an air taxi that takes off vertically, then quietly and quickly carries you over the congestion below, giving you back that time you’d otherwise spend sitting in traffic. Technology has advanced to the point where designing and operating an all-electric aircraft is completely viable. Our team has been discreetly designing and flight testing this vehicle and is looking for talented individuals to see it through certification and high rate production.


Joby is looking for a Facilities Supervisor with field leadership experience in the industrial, construction or manufacturing industry. You will be part of the Facilities team reporting to the Facilities Manager. This is a full-time salary position with on-call expectations, as needed. This person is expected to be a hands-on leader in the field.

You will be responsible for overseeing the repair and maintenance programs relating to the interior and exterior of our facilities, as well as all new and ongoing work that supports the continued expansion and refinement of our site-specific operations. You will play a key role in selecting contract services, negotiating service agreements with vendors, and monitoring vendor performance.
