Joby Aviation is seeking a passionate individual to join our mechanical engineering team. This individual would be responsible for designing flight critical components and mechanisms. This role will often involve design work starting at the conceptual level, mature into full 3D modeling, check with FEA analysis and hand calculations, and continue into manufacturing. Hands-on experience and a “get it done" attitude are very important for this position. This position is rewarding, as the engineer will promptly see their ideas grow from concept to creation due to the fast pace of Joby Aviation.
This role will be centered around alternative design methods (Topology Optimization, Algorythmic Design, Lattice Design, etc) and additive manufacturing. Experience with additive and/or generative design is a must.
Design of complicated mechanisms, linkages, actuators, etc.
Detailed design and fabrication instruction writing
Direct communication with vendors and technicians in manufacturing
B.S. in mechanical engineering or another relevant discipline
Excellent problem solving and communication skills
Strong analytical background
Experience with hands-on design and testing
Proficiency in mechanical design, materials selection, kinematics, troubleshooting, and analysis
Strong volumetric awareness
Proficiency with CAD
M.S./Ph.D. in relevant discipline
2+ years of working experience in relevant industry
Experience with Dassault Systemes CAD, specifically using Generative Shape Design, Part Design, and Assembly Design
Experience with finite element tools (Abaqus)
Aircraft homebuilding is a plus
