Join the Ground Crew.
We started Orb Aerospace because we had a passion for flying. Eventually through democratizing aviation, our objective is to extend the freedom of flight to even the poorest among us. For now, we extend that opportunity to our community through supporting our employees pilots licenses.
"Your work product is your responsibility" Our hiring process focuses on talents, passion, and experience rather than degrees and certifications. We take peoples work products at face value, and hire predominantly based on project portfolios of all kinds, even personal.
Our team consists of people who, given the freedom, are capable of much more than we could ever ask. Our system is one of mutual accountability from the CEO to the Janitor (which happens to be the same person).
If you've been looking for to push the envelope and be surrounded by those with a common goal of developing aviation technology in creative and selfless ways, then you've come to the right place.
Working with the Senior EE to design and deploy High voltage power systems with an emphasis on building and demonstrating prototypes. You’ll design and test generator and power distribution prototype systems using primarily off the shelf components. Preferably lots of hands-on integration experience paired with the latest in design and simulation.
Aerospace engineer with hands-on experience seeing experimental aviation programs through to fruition, is dynamic, understands teams, and is abounding in creativity. Their primary responsibility will be to team with another aerospace engineer and a design team to execute on moving from concept to detailed design via simulation, through prototype and into flight test. Orb’s vision to be a “playground” for experimental aviation and engineers with a conviction to push new aerospace technologies to the brink of what is possible.
VR experience lead developing experiential and utilitarian tools for Orb Aerospace. Working with a team on a physical “Holodeck” helping bring Orb simulations to life as an experience for end users, an engineering tool for the company, and an interface to future flying assets.
Working with a team to design and deploy generators, fuel cells, power distribution and electric propulsion into an array of test aircraft. You’ll design and test generator and power distribution prototype systems using primarily off the shelf components. Preferably lots of hands-on integration experience paired with the latest in design and simulation.
Designing everything on the airplane the moves(but doesn’t spin). Leads the mechanical engineering effort for novel airframes. A multi-faceted position able to contribute across design, simulation, manufacturing, and testing. Works with aerospace engineers, composite engineers, aircraft design engineers, and electrical engineers. Their primary responsibility will be vehicle assembly design and simulation.
