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.

At Beta Technologies, we apply our intellectual curiosity, passion for aviation, and commitment to sustainability toward a shared mission of revolutionizing electric aviation. Regardless of the position one holds, each team member brings their talent and desire to positively impact the environment and lives of others in a refreshing, vibrant, and inclusive culture.

The Project Engineer for Airborne Software will apply their deep knowledge of RTCA DO-178C and supplements, best practices for real-time safety-critical embedded software development, and project engineering mastery to plan, organize, direct, forecast, and track the work of the Airborne Software team members to achieve best-in-class project execution. The ideal candidate will have extensive knowledge of organizing and tracking embedded software projects in the aerospace domain, understanding of the dependencies and sequencing of tasks to comply with objectives of RTCA DO-178C, RTCA DO-330, and RTCA DO-331, and recognition and awareness of the interactions and transitioning of work performed by adjacent engineering disciplines.
