Location: Long Beach – California – USA

Type: Full Time

Category: Engineering, Airport/Airline

Skip the airport and cut door to door travel times in half!We are Craft Aero, a sustainable aviation startup and team of expert engineers from deep tech and aerospace. We are building vertical take-off and landing aircraft for the worlds busiest routes. Weve built and flown custom drones. Weve brought multiple automotive platforms into production. Weve electrified transportation vehicles that magnetically levitate, that roll, that fly.

Together, weve been learning, developing, building, testing, and preparing for this challenge our entire lives. Our bar is very high but if you join our team, you will work side by side with the best of the best and be challenged more than you have ever been challenged. Check us out:

Craft Aerospace is all about making use of our existing infrastructure to make long distance travel faster, easier, and more accessible to our customers. By utilizing existing infrastructure and through the development and creation of the Craft designs, this future will become a reality.

The Craft aircraft is a novel design, featuring a blown lift configuration enabling hover and shorter takeoffs combined with traditional methods of landing. This will allow it to operate out of existing helipads and also shorter existing runways such as municipal and regional airports.

CRAFT Aerospace Technologies, Inc. (CRAFT) is developing Slipstream, a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft intended to offer scheduled or on demand service on a high number of regional routes creating a dense mesh travel network. The aircraft is targeted toward intra-megaregion and adjacent megaregion travel but is expected to have many uses typical of similarly sized fixed wing aircraft or helicopters.

The team at Craft Aerospace is looking to hire a test engineer to support rapid development of test rigs and test articles, data acquisition and test reports to aid with next prototype aircraft and future iterations.
