System Engineer Flight Control System (m/w)

 VOLOCOPTER  Bruchsal
We at Volocopter are building the world's first fully electric and safe air taxis. With the Volocopter we want to redefine the way people move into cities and make humanity's dream come true. As pioneers in this field, we wrote aviation history in 2011 with the first ever manned flight of a multicopter. This feat followed by milestones as the first license and the worldwide first autonomous flight in a mega city (www.volocopter.com).
