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.


We are a rapidly growing team building mission critical software products supporting Joby Aviation’s vision to save 1 billion people an hour every day through electric powered flight. The Air Taxi Product Team builds & maintains the software service required to operationalize the Joby aircraft in a variety of contexts from aerial ridesharing to DOD logistics use cases. This role's work spans multiple areas including architecture, cloud infrastructure, networking, online data processing, reliability and more. The Air Taxi Software Tech Lead will be instrumental in driving Joby’s Air Taxi Software Team to revolutionize the transportation industry.
