Mechanical Engineer - Additive

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.
