Vacancies

Verification Engineer (Electronics)
The Hague, The Netherlands

You will be joining our electronics team. From 2020, we will test our experimental aircraft (AP3) in Ireland. The aircraft is a state of the art UAV utilizing fast, reliable, efficient electronic parts. Integration of our aircraft will happen at our own workshop in the Netherlands this year in order for it to be ready for ‘roll out’ and testing early next year.

System / Network Administrator
The Hague, The Netherlands

This vacancy is within our Office Support team. We are looking for a curious problem-solver that ensures that the IT infrastructure is fully operational for our international team of 50. Y

Flight Control Engineer
Melbourne

As member of the Algorithms team you will gain good knowledge of both control systems and algorithms design, as well as basic software engineering principles. You’ll support ao. the development and verification of computational algorithms for our Airborne Wind Energy Systems. We’re looking for an Aerospace Engineering graduate with some industry experience.

External Pilot ( Remote Control Pilot) Fixed wing UAV
The Hague, Netherlands

As a member of the flight operations team, you will take an important role in flight operations of our AWE systems. As an External Pilot (Remote Control Pilot) you will serve as safety pilot during critical flight testing phase as well as take-off and landing operations if needed.

Internship: Aerodynamic modelling of rotors
The Hague, The Netherlands

Great opportunity to get involved in the conceptual design phase of our first commercial prototype!
You will be developing an aerodynamic model of the rotors of the aircraft in order to support the conceptual studies of AP-4. The model should be suited for both propellers and on-board generators, used respectively to generate thrust for climbing phases or to generate the power required for on-board avionics.
