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 motivated Battery Management Hardware Developer to join our team. As a Battery Management Hardware Developer, you will play a vital role in the development of advanced battery management systems for cutting-edge aircraft, working closely with multidisciplinary teams to design and integrate hardware components for efficient and reliable battery management.

Your mission during this flight:

  • Collaborate with colleagues from various disciplines to evaluate requirements, design descriptions, functions, and more at both the system and component levels, ensuring they meet the specific needs of battery management systems.
  • Work closely with systems and aircraft level teams to ensure consistency and completeness in the development of battery management hardware across the entire project.
  • Manage the internal hardware development process, including requirements management, component design, and milestone deliverables.
  • Take ownership of component design description documents, interface control documents, and related hardware documentation.
  • Review supplier documents, such as requirement specifications and design description documents, ensuring compliance with battery management system requirements.
  • Specify and support the validation and verification activities of battery management hardware components according to industry standards and regulatory requirements.
  • Participate in system level and component level milestones, such as PDR, CDR, and TRR, providing expertise and support.
  • Collaborate with external regulatory bodies, such as EASA, during formal audits and exchanges related to battery management hardware development.
