Swiss based Dufour Aerospace is developing an eVTOL platform based on tilt-wing technology to make future manned and unmanned electric and hybrid electric aircraft a reality. Dufour’s prototypes have already flown many hundreds of flights – both manned and unmanned. The combination of VTOL operation, aircraft design and software development expertise puts Dufour Aerospace at the forefront of Advanced Air Mobility.
We are seeking apassionate individual to join our engineering team. This role allows for the engineer to interface with many disciplines within the company and invites creativity. Prototypes are designed quickly and efficiently, meaning attention to detail is critical. Applicant is expected to have expertise leading prototype and certification EWIS activities for both rotorcraft and fixed wing aircraft. Applicant is expected to have gained experience on Electrical Systems, Grounding and Bonding, or similar domain. Knowledge of DC power distribution with elevated voltages up to 900 V – 300A with the implication on wiring harnesses, connectors and safety is a must. Knowledge of HV-DC global challenges such as segregation requirements, partial discharge, corona effect, arc fault detection, and health monitoring. Supporting HV power, new componentsor electronics development, and state of the art battery systems to shape lightweight, high performance solutions meeting their specific requirements. Applicant is expected to have previously held DOA or equivalent signatory with experience of airworthiness requirements and regulatory authorities. Due to the efficient nature of a start-up, this position is rewarding, as the engineer will promptly see their ideas grow from concept to creation.
