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.


In May of 2022, Joby acquired Avionyx, a provider of engineering services focused on safety and mission-critical software for the aerospace industry. Avionyx has a long history of supporting DO-178B/C projects and is growing their support for DO-254, cybersecurity, and related areas. Joby is seeking a focused business development professional with experience in the engineering services domain, ideally involving offshore provision of those services.
