We at Volocopter are pioneers in the development of electrical air taxis that take off and land vertically (eVTOLs). We are bringing urban air mobility to life by introducing our air taxis and drones as an electric addition to current transportation options in megacities worldwide. Our aim is to offer affordable on-demand air taxi services and save people time by flying them safely to their destination. In 2011, we performed the first-ever crewed flight of a purely electrical multicopter and have since showcased numerous public flights with our full-scale Volocopters (www. volocopter.com).

We are seeking a highly skilled and innovative Electrical Architect to join our team. As the Electrical Architect, you will be responsible for ensuring that the aircraft's electrical design meets certification and redundancy requirements. You will play a critical role in defining the technology roadmap and selecting the best design options through trade studies, simulations, and evaluation of multiple technical solutions. Your strong communication skills and technical expertise will be essential in driving the electrical design towards optimal performance and compliance.

Your mission during this flight:

  • Define and drive the electrical architecture for aircraft systems, considering certification and redundancy requirements.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including system engineers, electrical engineers, and avionics specialists, to develop electrical design solutions that meet program objectives.
  • Lead trade studies, simulations, and evaluations of various technical solutions to identify the most effective design options.
  • Ensure compliance with relevant aerospace standards and regulations, such as DO-254, DO-178 and DO-160.
  • Collaborate closely with the certification team to ensure that the electrical design meets all necessary certification requirements.
  • Drive the technology roadmap for electrical systems, keeping abreast of emerging technologies and advancements in the field.
  • Collaborate with suppliers and partners to evaluate new components, subsystems, and technologies for integration into the electrical design.
  • Work closely with system architects and project stakeholders to ensure alignment with overall system architecture and program goals.
  • Conduct system-level analyses, including fault tolerance and redundancy assessments, to ensure system safety and reliability.
  • Participate in design reviews and provide technical guidance to the engineering team, ensuring the selection of optimal design solutions.
  • Develop and maintain documentation, including architectural specifications, design guidelines, and technical reports.
  • Communicate effectively with internal and external stakeholders to present design options, solicit feedback, and address technical inquiries.
  • Collaborate with the test and verification team to define test plans and ensure successful verification of the electrical design.
  • Check in your professional skills:

  • Master's degree in Electrical Engineering or a related field.
  • Extensive experience in electrical system design, architecture, and integration within the aerospace industry.
  • In-depth knowledge of aerospace standards and regulations, such as DO-254 and DO-160, and their implications on electrical design.
  • Proven experience in performing trade studies, simulations, and evaluations to select optimal design solutions.
  • Familiarity with certification processes and requirements for aerospace systems.
  • Strong understanding of fault tolerance and redundancy concepts in electrical systems.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills, with the ability to effectively convey complex technical information to diverse audiences.
  • Strong problem-solving and analytical skills, with the ability to evaluate and assess multiple technical options.
  • Proficiency in using engineering tools and software for simulation, analysis, and design.
  • Strong organizational skills, with the ability to manage multiple tasks and prioritize effectively.
  • Ability to work collaboratively in a cross-functional team environment and influence stakeholders to drive decision-making.
  • Fluent in English.
  • Preferred Skills:

  • Experience with advanced electrical technologies and emerging trends in the aerospace industry.
  • Knowledge of avionics systems and their integration with electrical systems.
  • Familiarity with aircraft electrical power distribution systems.
  • Understanding of system safety and reliability engineering principles.
  • Experience with model-based systems engineering and architectural modeling tools.
  • Knowledge of system-level testing and verification methodologies.
  • Our Volocopter flight includes:

  • Fast-growing high-tech company with a supreme network of investors and partners
  • Ability to contribute directly to the future of aviation
  • The chance to build up new things/projects from scratch
  • Personal accountability, growth and learning opportunities, based on your personal strengths
  • An inspiring working environment with modern workspaces, flexible work time, short lines of communication, flat structures, positive leadership, great team spirit
  • Attractive salary package
  • Our differences make us stronger. At Volocopter, we value equal opportunity, trust, and the voice of each of our employees. As change-makers in air mobility, we believe that changing the world starts within each of our teams. We are committed to driving innovation by celebrating diversity and fostering an inclusive culture where everyone is treated equally and respectfully, regardless of our different backgrounds and roles in the company.
