Who we are: 

Archer is an aerospace company based in Palo Alto, California building an all-electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft with a mission to advance the benefits of sustainable air mobility. We are designing, manufacturing, and operating an all-electric aircraft that can carry four passengers for 60 miles at speeds of up to 150 mph while producing minimal noise. 

Our sights are set high and our problems are hard, and we believe that diversity in the workplace is what makes us smarter, drives better insights, and will ultimately lift us all to success. We are dedicated to cultivating an equitable and inclusive environment that embraces our differences, and supports and celebrates all of our team members.

What you’ll do:

  • Deploy large-scale closed-loop simulations to cloud computing resources
  • Develop tools to efficiently analyze and display results from large batch simulations
  • Build and manage the infrastructure that enables Model-Based Design for flight software and simulation models
  • Work closely with Avionics engineers to define generated code interfaces for GNC software
  • Manage and grow the Continuous Integration system including Model-In-Loop, Software-In-Loop, and Hardware-In-Loop testing
  • Develop tools to interface with data pipelines for processing simulation and flight test data
  • Develop internal capability to quickly and effectively analyze data from multiple flights
  • Develop the infrastructure to support certification activities (e.g., support traceability,   automating test activities for verifying requirements, and generating proper documentation)

What you need:

  • 3+ years of relevant experience
  • BS in Aerospace Engineering, Electrical/Computer Engineering, or a related field 
  • Demonstrated expertise in Model-Based Design workflows including code generation with Simulink
  • Familiarity with Continuous Integration tools (TeamCity, Jenkins, etc.)
  • Experience with Monte Carlo simulations

Bonus Qualifications: 

  • Proficiency in C++ or Python
  • Experience defining model standards 
  • Experience with databases and/or data pipelines
  • Experience modeling physical and digital systems in Simulink
  • Experience with High Performance Computing (HPC)
  • Experience with certified flight software (DO-178C / DO-331)
  • Familiarity with real-time pub/sub systems (DDS, ROS, etc.)
