Description of the company
Founded in 2018, AURA AERO is the first digital and eco-efficient aircraft manufacturer, born of the desire of three aeronautical engineers to combine the best of the aeronautical industry and digital technologies in order to design, manufacture, and operate aircraft with unparalleled efficiency in the growing market for eco-efficient and low carbon emission vehicles.
AURA AERO carries within itself the DNA of the future!
This principle commits us to sharing the values of Innovation and Performance, so that all our skills can fully express their potential.
AURA AERO is growing, and is recruiting an Aeronautical Experimental Development Engineer – Battery Specialist M/F.
The Aeronautical Experimental Development Engineer – Battery Specialist M/F, who will report to the Head of the Experimental Design Office, will work in a design office and will be responsible for identifying, developing, and validating new technologies and concepts in the aerospace domain.
You will apply your expertise, creativity, and curiosity to all your actions, the orientation of which will be guided by the implementation of AURA AERO’s strategy.
You will join a team whose main characteristic is that it not only can but also wants to expand its comfort zone for the benefit of aeronautical innovation, so your assignments will always be evolving.
In concrete terms, you will work with us in the domain of batteries, and carry out the following activities:
Defining and/or drafting reports on methods, processes, and tools for the design and validation of on-board electrical energy storage devices,
Developing architecture, feasibility, and prototyping studies of the “on-board battery system” for electric aircraft concepts,
Handling the preparation, monitoring, and analyses of ground tests and test flights,
Taking charge of coordinating subcontracted activities relating to aeronautical experimental development engineering, specifically those related to batteries,
Proposing and coordinating research activities in connection with academia,
Monitoring technological developments so as to be able to identify emerging technologies.
Depending on your personal expertise and following an approach that will combine practical know-how and a mastery of digital technologies, you will contribute to multidisciplinary development activities - the functional, physical, and behavioural definition - of products.
You should have a degree, ideally a PhD, from an aeronautical engineering school, and you should have significant and successful experience in the design and installation of batteries in the aeronautical, automotive, or space domains.
We place particular emphasis on the following traits:
- Your appetite for matters that have a high degree of uncertainty and risk.
- In conjunction, your humility and your interest in learning, listening, and asking questions in order to reason about complex issues,
- Lastly, how much you truly enjoy sharing and working in a team.

- Being a source of ideas and having the capacity to adapt, in order to meet targets and evolve your position along with the development of AURA AERO.
If you have a certified level of technical English proficiency, an appetite for digital experiences, and the ability to work with multidisciplinary teams, then you will be able to take up this position in an effective manner.
Having knowledge about light aircraft will be considered to be an advantage.
The position will be based in Cugnaux (31), in an environment that is emblematic of aviation in Toulouse.
