About the company:

BETA Technologies is creating an electric transportation ecosystem that’s safe, reliable and sustainable. A relentlessly focused team is building an extensive charging infrastructure and ALIA, the world’s most technologically advanced electric vertical aircraft (EVA).

BETA’s platform and products are strikingly simple. Prioritization of safety and a pragmatic approach to certification drive elegant redundancy, appropriate diversity of implementation and simplicity of control. ALIA’s fixed-pitch propellers and centrally located batteries make it an inherently stable aircraft that is safe to fly and easy to maneuver.

The Cabin Systems/Interior Design Engineer is responsible for supporting the development and integration of the aircraft subsystems including cargo restraints, seats, panels, monuments and environmental control system. As a Design Engineer at Beta Technologies you will work in a small team environment to rapidly develop new technologies in the evolving world of eVTOL aircraft design. As an open minded and outside-the-box thinker you will perpetually strive to supplement your past industry experience with new knowledge gained every day through research and experimentation as you design next generation battery modules. You will utilize any necessary CAD modeling and analysis tools to ensure your designs are meeting the highest safety standards and exceeding all relevant regulatory requirements. You will be challenged every day and probably have a lot of fun.
