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.


Joby Aviation is seeking a courseware developer to join its Flight Standards and Training team to continue to generate training materials for pilots of our future fleet of Urban Air Mobility aircraft. The successful candidate will have prior experience developing courseware for aviation applications and will be very proficient with common courseware authoring tools. Your expertise in instructional design combined with your deep understanding of how pilots learn will be crucial in developing engaging and effective learning experiences for our trainees. The position is based in Marina, CA., but there may be the need to travel to attend conventions and represent Joby’s training solutions at other events. This role will operate in a fast-paced, demanding, and rewarding environment with very high expectations for individual contribution.

  • Bachelor’s degree in aviation, business, engineering or education-related field, or equivalent experience.
  • A minimum 4 years of experience as a courseware developer in the aviation or related industry.
