Aeronautical & Mechanical Engineers – Turbine VTOL


Here at JetPack Aviation we are redefining the future of personal flight. We are the inventors and currently only company that creates a turbine powered VTOL Jetpack. Now we are also working on some exciting new concepts that will enable fully stabilized and autonomous operations. We are a small company that is expanding every day as the world starts to hear more and more about the reality that Jetpacks are technology that is here and now.

We are looking for Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineers to help the engineering teams efforts in creating new and exciting aircraft. These positions will be working directly with the management/engineering team and pilots to design, build, and maintain the current Jetpack models and the new aircraft we are developing – the “Speeder”. We are looking for someone who wants to jump right into a new and exciting field in the aerospace/technology/extreme sports sectors. The ideal candidates will be very creative, hands on, super excited about the project, and have a solid engineering background to build off of.
