We at Volocopter are the pioneers of electric air taxis, i.e. aircraft that take off and land vertically (eVTOLs). We bring urban air mobility to life, by getting air taxis and drones off the gorund in a way that complements current transportation options in megacities across the globe. Our aim is to offer affordable on-demand air taxi services that fly people to their destination quickly and safely. In 2011 we performed the first-ever piloted flight of a purely electric multicopter and have since showcased numerous public flights with our full-scale VoloCity aircrafts (www. volocopter.com).

Your mission during this flight:

You are a Senior System engineer experienced in the development of complex systems and you are passionate about making a difference in eVTOL aviation. You have substantial experience in system architecture and requirements engineering and a profound knowledge of the verification and validation aspects in aviation, and in particular flight control system and pilot controls. Within a multi-disciplinary team, you will coordinate between the various teams and systems to ensure a successful certification of the pilot control input concept of the Volocopter aircraft. You will shape the future of how pilots control an eVTOL aircraft.

  • You will support with requirements management at flight control level with a focus on pilot controls (including e.g. functional-, safety-, regulatory-, environmental-, human factors, and performance requirements)
  • You will provide system-level expert for coordination and alignment with various internal departments, flight testing but also certification authorities
  • You will support with the generation of tests (including safety), drawings, and design specifications
  • You will coordinate and manage an external supplier
  • Check in your professional skills:

  • Engineering degree (MSc or higher), preferably in aerospace engineering.
  • At least 6 years of professional experience in systems engineering for complex systems (ideally aviation-related and in flight control system and pilot controls)
  • Knowledge of aviation standards and guidelines (DO-160, DO-178, and DO-254 in line with the ARP4754A, ARP4761)
  • Knowledge of certification processes (Part 21) and requirements under EASA (CS-23, CS-25, CS-27, CS-29, ideally SC-VTOL)
  • Highly skilled and effective in technical writing and communicating with others
  • You have worked in V-Cycle and agile/scrum environments and have an awareness of the methodologies and used tools (e.g. Jira, SAFe)
  • Experience with systems engineering tools (e.g. DOORS, SysML, etc.)
  • Ideally theoretical knowledge about flight testing, flight physics or electrical systems
  • A structured way of working and a high sense of reliability and accountability
  • Work mode: Ground (On-Site)

    Some of our Volocopter flight perks:

  • A fast-growing high-tech company with a broad network of top investors and partners
