Modern aircraft development requires demonstrated compliance to a variety of FAA rules, guidance documents, and industry standards. The Development Assurance Group is critical to ensuring Joby’s compliance to ARP4754A for systems development, DO-178C for software development, and DO-254 for electronics development now and in the future. The skilled engineers within this team have established plans, standards, policies, and procedures for meeting the various development assurance guidelines and serve in both a mentoring and oversight capacity as Joby executes to those plans. The Developmental Quality Assurance (DQA) engineering staff work side by side with the company’s certification staff to ensure adherence to these critical processes through a combination of data review, process auditing, and test witnessing. They are deeply engaged in development activities so that if issues arise, they are identified and resolved to ensure a compliant development process. DQA provides supplier oversight for producing software and airborne electronic hardware for Joby’s initial type certification vehicle. DQA also works closely with Joby’s configuration management team including participating in Change Review Boards to ensure configuration control and product conformity are achieved. DQA at Joby is a hands-on, active participant in the development process.
Our goal is to find individuals who are open to new challenges and are willing to roll up their sleeves and do what is necessary to help the team succeed. We would like to ultimately build a development assurance team where individuals have both breadth across many aspects of development assurance and depth in one or two areas. The goal is to certify our aircraft with a constant attention to safety and airworthiness compliance.
