More than a billion people spend over one hour a day in traffic. Transportation emissions are one of the largest sources of pollution, while streets, highways, bridges and tunnels are increasingly expensive to maintain and build. At Joby Aviation we aim to solve these problems by delivering safe and affordable air travel to everyone—while advancing the transition to sustainable transportation.
Joby Aviation’s Integration Team is seeking a Production Manager who is highly organized, passionate individual with excellent oral, written and interpersonal skills. This position will be initially based at our Santa Cruz, CA facility, and then will be shifting to working primarily out of our Marina, CA facility. This role will develop in a fast paced, demanding, and rewarding environment with very high expectations for individual contribution.
Your primary responsibilities will include building the production teams and setting up the facilities necessary to carry out manufacturing for actuators, mechanical systems, and aircraft final assembly, in concordance with FAA production certificate guidelines; then operate them to meet production needs. To accomplish this, you will be working with various engineering teams at Joby Aviation (including design, prototype manufacturing, quality, supply chain, certification, and more). The Production Manager will develop and execute appropriate strategies and tactics that will allow the company to achieve development and production milestones on schedule and meeting the associated quality requirements.
