Hyundai Motor Group is at the forefront of creating emerging mobility solutions that will foster the development of human-centered cities. The Group’s Urban Air Mobility Division is designing a completely new electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft tailored to the mobility needs of future cities, allowing passengers a seamless intermodal journey that safely transports them to their final destination. We fuse research in autonomy, robotics, aviation and services to define a new category of mobility for the world’s communities. We believe in creative thinking and collaboration to help build a better mobility experience for everyone, improving people’s ability to move – whether for work or play.

What we do:

The Hyundai Urban Air Mobility Division is looking for a Senior Control Law (CLAW) engineer to join the Flight Controls team. This person will be a crucial contributor to the development and implementation of the Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC) of our aircraft.

What you can do: 

  • Design and implement flight control algorithms for a VTOL aircraft with a novel configuration
  • Proficiency in implementing classical and modern control law
  • Conduct trade studies between different design considerations and control schemes.
  • Define control system architecture, response types, etc. for an aircraft that might change configuration between flight regimes.
  • Conduct stability and control related analyses in time and frequency domain.
  • Collaborate with the Systems engineering team to define requirements related to the flight control system and system safety.

What you can contribute: 

  • Proven experience in flight control algorithm design for rotary-wing and/or fixed-wing Fly-By-Wire aircraft systems
  • Proven experienced in analyzing flight dynamic modes for stability and control
  • Experience with actuator and motor control loops
  • Experience with mixing and blending of control surface commands
  • Experience with flight testing
  • Experience with sensor processing and Kalman filter design
  • Experience with requirement definition
  • Familiarity with DO-178B/C, DO-160, DO-254, ARP 4754A, ARP 4761
  • Expertise in MathWorks® tools for control algorithm development

You may also be able to contribute: 

  • Leverage additional knowledge and capability gained from earning an M.S. or a Ph.D. degree in a relevant engineering field
  • Familiarity with aircraft handling quality requirements
  • Familiarity with DO-331
  • Experience on aircraft with multiple different modes of flight, including vertical lift
  • Experience building control laws for unmanned aircraft
  • Experience with system identification and optimization tools (CIFER, CONDUIT)
  • Experience in math model development of a physical system
  • Experience with Agile process
  • Some experience in C++ is beneficial
