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.


To support Skyryse missions, any systems, components, software or technology must be developed with most rigorous processes to ensure they are certifiable by regulatory agencies and mostly they are safe to operate.

You will lead the development of certifiable flight automation technologies and cost-efficient processes for the new Urban Commercial Aviation industry.
