Here at Kitty Hawk in Palo Alto, we are developing ground breaking all-electric Vertical Take off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft. Project Heaviside is Kitty Hawks latest high-performance electric VTOL vehicle. It is designed to be fast, small, and exceedingly quiet, taking advantage of new possibilities to free people from traffic.

We are looking for someone to help drive regulatory progress between Heaviside and our regulatory authorities, including the FAA and EASA, forward. You will have the opportunity to craft our approach to working on finding safe and efficient ways to do things that have never been done before. You will own the major policy hurdles facing us and ensure we are making progress on them. You are pragmatic, promoting simple paths, even in a novel environment.

Within 1 months you will:

  • Take responsibility for membership and participation in a range of industry consensus standards
  • Understand Heavisides internal teams and stakeholders in order to effectively propel our certification efforts forward

Within 3 months you will:

  • Support our regulatory efforts by coordinating with both internal and external stakeholders
  • Develop strategies around the approval of new and novel technologies and operations

Within 6 months you will:

  • Have made significant headway with the FAA and other stakeholders along the course you help define


  • 8+ years experience working w/aerospace related certification efforts
  • Direct interaction with the FAA or relevant regulatory body pursuing type and/or production certificates
  • Demonstrated success pursuing changes to aerospace type certification
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Experience with uncrewed aviation programs
We welcome you to apply even if you dont match every requirement posted for this role. No one candidate will be a 100% perfect match to our description, so if you are passionate about working on the next evolution in aviation and have similar experience to what we are looking for, we encourage you to apply. Diverse backgrounds and experiences promote innovation and our goal is to build a team that encompasses a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and skills.

All of our team whose roles allow them to work remotely are doing so, and will continue to do so until were able to be back in the office. For teams that are not able to work remotely were making every accommodation possible to provide a safe working environment, and ensuring we meet all state and county guidelines.

Our headquarters is in Palo Alto and we offer a comprehensive benefits package including medical, dental, vision, and life insurance, unlimited PTO days, 10 company holidays, a 401(k) plan with 40% company matching (no vesting period), flight lesson subsidy, education assistance, and company-sponsored social events. For those working onsite, Kitty Hawk also offers commuter assistance, and free drinks and snacks.

Kitty Hawk provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetics. In addition to federal law requirements, Kitty Hawk abides by applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment in every location in which the company has facilities. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation, and training.
