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
