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.

Overview

Joby is seeking a talented electrical engineer to join our team designing all-electric aircraft. This engineer will work closely with mechanical, software, and other cross-functional teams. You'll be taking ownership of key electrical subsystems and printed-circuit-boards from design through prototyping and to product. This is a hands-on position. Optimizing designs for reliability, weight, and efficiency will be essential. 

Responsibilities

  • Create clear and readable schematics for digital and mixed-signal printed-circuit-boards
  • Component selection for minimum mass and maximum reliability
  • Investigate modern technologies for power and data transmission/management 
  • Work with PCB designers to create reliable and low-weight layouts
  • Write requirements, participate in DFMEAs + create and carry out test and validation plans

Required

  • B.S. in Electrical Engineering or related discipline
  • Strong EE fundamentals, including familiarity with:
    • Power conversion (linear and switching regulators)
    • High-speed digital design and layout
    • Signal conditioning and conversion (ADCs, filters)
    • Discrete semiconductor design (FETs, BJTs, Diodes)
  • Schematic capture and PCB design
  • Experience with component selection
  • Hands-on experience with building and debugging hardware
  • Great communication skills

Pursuant to various local, state, and federal regulations, you must show proof of your full COVID-19 vaccination status prior to your start date.  Exemption requests are available for bona fide religious and medical circumstances.

Desired

  • Advanced degree in relevant discipline 
  • 2+ years of working experience in relevant industry 
  • Familiarity with Altium Designer
  • High voltage electrical design (400V+)
  • Exposure to regulatory certification
  • Design-for-reliability, including use of DFMEA and fault trees
  • Designing for high EMI environments
