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 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 Senior Production Engineer will act as a project manager and will report to the Head of Manufacturing and support the Accountable Manager to get the Production Organisation Approval (POA) to our company. The continuous monitoring of the POA, identification of gaps and corrective actions, as well as the continuous improvement for the certification will also be among your main activities.
You will also have the responsibilities for keeping the Manufacturing Team aligned with the Design Organisation Team and the Independent System Monitoring (ISM), to certify that the POA and DOA are always linked during its whole process: implementation and maintenance.
In addition to the Production Organisation Exposition (POE), you will create and implement procedures to guide our company to be compliant with EASA and Transportstyrelsen regarding aerospace industry obligations.
Providing guidance through explanation of policies, authorities regulations and guidelines to ensure compliance to requirements is also an essential part for this role as well as to align relevant process issues and risks with Operations Managers.

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%.
