Skyryse is developing FlightOS, the world's first universal flight deck and operating system. FlightOS unlocks safer, more capable, and easier to fly aircraft (eVTOLs, helicopters, fixed-wings, etc.). Our mission at Skyryse is to make air transportation as safe as the elevator and as accessible as the car.


As a Mechanical Design Engineer, Integration you will design and produce hardware solutions for our rapidly expanding portfolio of fixed wing and rotorcraft platforms. This includes designing, prototyping, and testing manufacture ready instances of actuator brackets, electronics enclosures, sensor mounts, and more. The role involves collaboration with LRU engineers, aircraft mechanics, external partners and Designated Engineering Representatives to determine how best to integrate designs into OEM airframes. You will be hands-on with each fixed wing and/or rotorcraft model you design, working to bring our vision to life.


  • Design, prototype and test brackets, assemblies and mounting configurations for FlightOS hardware
  • Develop both prototype level and production level drawing packages for machining onsite or through partners
  • Perform tolerance stackups, hand stress and kinematic calculations, FEA, and CAD to ensure all hardware meets or exceeds product needs
  • Complete analysis on your designs and report results to engineering team for review
  • Prepare and present PDR and CDR to progress your designs quickly through the engineering design process
  • Proactively interface and engage with cross functional teams as required
  • Engineer structures and fixtures that comply with FAA certification standards
