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.

Role Overview

The Head of Airborne Equipment Development reports to the Head of Engineering (Chief Engineer) and has broad responsibility for the design, development & qualification of the aircraft systems & equipment which are developed in-house.

You will initially be responsible for establishing our in-house equipment development capabilities, including definition of processes, procedures and development tools. You will also assist with the hiring and training of the hardware & software development team to execute the projects.

You will eventually lead a multi-functional team, covering software development, hardware development, equipment integration, validation & verification, and qualification.

As the leader of the Airborne Equipment Development team, you will be an internal supplier of equipment and systems to the aircraft system integration groups. You will therefore represent the Airborne Equipment Development team at program/technical reviews as well as customer/supplier meetings, ensuring the engineering definition meets all stakeholder requirements.

As part of our approved Design Organization, you will also be responsible for ensuring adherence to all engineering processes/standards.

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%.
