At Flux Aviation we believe that the future of flight is electric. A future where flying is clean, quiet and affordable. We are making this vision possible by developing some of the highest-performance electric motors and batteries that will power next generation electric aircraft. But to reinvent an industry, you have to build the best team.

Flux Aviation was founded by a team of senior engineers with experience across aerospace, robotics and Formula 1. But we are bound by a common passion for flying and a vision of electric flight for all.

You will be architecting, prototyping, building, and designing the hardware for our next-generation electric propulsion systems. You will be responsible for key system decisions that affect the final performance and reliability of our products.

If you want to lead the design and create products that will change the way we fly, we want you as a Graduate Mechanical Engineer.
