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 place of work will be at our main office and hangar facility. This is located at Säve Airport in Gothenburg, Sweden. Relocation assistance can be provided. At Heart you’ll be working at the cutting edge of technology while contributing towards a sustainable future. We offer stock options to all our employees and a challenging and inspiring work environment.

We seek experienced and skilled professionals to join our small, fast-moving team who are 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.

Role Overview

We are seeking a Junior Engineer with interest in Flight Control Systems (FCS) to help in the design and develop a unique flight control system and primary control functions. The system will employ electrical signalling and actuation operating as a Fly-by-Wire system.

This is a broad developmental role covering design, analysis, and testing and therefore, we are looking for an engineer with the ability to develop professionally from their work experiences, and eventually assume technical ownership of functions or products within the Flight Controls team. Preferably you have 1-2 years of similar working experience.

About the company

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%.
