Job Description:

Joby OverviewLocated in Northern California, the Joby Aviation team is steadily working toward our goal of creating an affordable, all-electric air transportation system. Imagine an air taxi that takes off vertically, then quietly and quickly carries you over the traffic congestion below, giving you back the time that otherwise would have spent sitting in traffic. Since 2009, our team has been making this dream a reality, designing and flight testing a prototype aircraft capable of serving in a network of electric air taxis. We're looking for talented individuals to join our team as we push onwards toward certifying the aircraft with the Federal Aviation Administration and preparing for commercialization with launch targeted in select markets for 2024. -
The primary focus of this role will be to build up and maintain our code generation framework as well as our massive YAML database which contains the input to our code generators. Joby relies heavily on code generation within our software department which works by parsing YAML and then running it though our code generation tool which consists of Python, Docker and CMake to generate C++, RST Documentation and other output.

  • Lead the development, implementation and maintenance of our code generation framework and aircraft database
  • Will work closely with all the software teams which rely on this tool to support their code generation requirements


    • University degree and 3+ years industry experience in a hands-on relevant software project
    • Expert in Python
    • Prior experience working with databases
    • Experience working with build systems such as CMake
    • 1+ year(s) experience of C++
    • Prior experience with Docker


      • Sphinx, Restructured Text and/or some other self-documenting code constructs
      • Python Poetry or other Python package managers is a plus
      • Familiarity with Linux OS and command line tools
      • Previous experience with code generation methods and techniques
      • Python Jinja2 templating engine

        Joby Aviation is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
