About Heart Aerospace
Heart’s mission is to create the fastest, most affordable and sustainable mode of transport for regional travel. Our goal is to serve the market in every corner of the world.
Our first aircraft is the ES-19, a nineteen-passenger airliner with an operating range of 400 km. The ES-19 is a fully electric aircraft, and our goal is to have the aircraft certified for commercial operation by 2026.
Your full-time place of work will be at our main office and hangar facility. This is located at Säve Airport in Gothenburg, Sweden. At Heart you’ll be working at the cutting edge of technology while contributing towards a sustainable future.
We seek motivated and skilled professionals to join our small, fast moving team developing a new electric aircraft in Sweden. We’re in a very expansive phase and now is the time to join our team.
Come help us write a new chapter in the history of aviation together.
The Certification Engineers report to the Project Certification Manager and have broad responsibility for the management and execution of given technical subsets of the aircraft certification programme. The subject disciplines can include Flight Sciences, Structures/Airframe, Interiors & Cabin Safety, Propulsion and Mechanical Systems.
As a part of the certification team you will work towards discharging the responsibilities on behalf of the Head of Airworthiness in line with EASA Regulation IR 21.A.239(a). You will interface directly with engineering department certification specialists as well as other company functions such as Manufacturing, Operations, Flight Test and Supply Chain Management. Such responsibilities will not immediately be awarded, but will be part of a personal development plan you will help to co-define and implement.
You will develop to become an active part of the Airworthiness & Certification function to program/technical reviews as well as customer/supplier meetings and airworthiness/certification meetings with the authorities, ensuring the certification programme follows the regulatory requirements and our design organisation handbook. You will also ensure schedule adherence to the certification programme and play an active part in design reviews to meet certification, cost, and schedule goals.
Qualifications & Experience
Graduate degree in aerospace, aeronautical similar discipline, or equivalent experience via accredited post-graduate training/apprenticeship & on-the-job product design experience (i.e. 5 years total).
In addition to the above, minimum 2 year’s design engineering and/or product certification experience.
Technical experience within one of the disciplines listed above and/or sufficient transferable skills/experience to be able to develop to cover a given aerospace technical discipline.

Experience working in an aerospace start-up environment.
A strong compliance and integration mindset.
Be part of the electric aviation revolution!
Heart Aerospace is a Swedish startup making electric regional airplanes. Heart's mission is to create the fastest, most affordable and sustainable transportation for regional travel to every corner of the world. Our first aircraft is the ES-19, a nineteen-passenger airliner with an operating range of 400 km. Our goal is to have the aircraft certified for commercial operation by 2026.
GREENAir travel accounts for 2% of global CO2 emissions, and that share is expected to rise to 12-27% by 2050. 40% of worldwide emissions are from short-haul flights. Electric aircraft are the solution. These planes have zero operational emissions, and the lowest infrastructural footprint of all modes of regional transport.
ACCESSIBLEWe believe air travel should be integrated into–not seperated from–our towns and communities. Our zero-emissions, low-noise aircraft can operate on 750m runways, making new use of the vast network of small airports close to city centres.
COST-EFFICIENTElectrification changes the equation for regional air travel. Electric aircraft are affordable to buy, operate and maintain. Simple, reliable electric motors reduce maintenance costs by 90% compared to turboprops, and intelligent electronic monitoring reduces inspection needs. Most importantly, fuel costs go down by 50-75%.
