We are looking for a Staff Aircraft Avionics Simulation Engineer to join our team. The goal of an Avionics Simulation Engineer at Wisk is to ensure that avionics components and systems are correctly simulated (or stimulated) and integrated within a number of simulation applications. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Monte-Carlo type simulations for the development of autonomy algorithms
  • Real-time, Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) and System-Level simulations
  • Avionics hardware and embedded software development and certification activities
  • Aircraft system development and certification activities
  • Ground segment development and certification activities
  • Evaluating and validating aircraft performance
  • Concept of Operations (ConOps) definition and validation
  • Operator/’pilot’ training
  • Maintenance training


  • Help lead the design and development of advanced simulations for a diverse set of applications; including single- and multi-agent scenarios for complex algorithm development, early requirements validation for avionics systems and software, embedded software development/verification, HIL/SIL and system-level environments, validation of control algorithms, and operator/‘pilot’ training
  • Develop, validate and deploy advanced simulation capabilities pertaining to aircraft and ground segment avionics
  • Help to cultivate and develop departmental expertise with avionics and avionics simulation
  • Collaborate with internal customers to identify simulation system requirements, plan milestones and deliver critical tools/capabilities to support product development
  • Organize, plan and advance the end-to-end simulation development efforts to support our long-term autonomous air-taxi ConOps
  • Work with agile teams to manage the development backlog and to ensure that the needs of internal groups/IPTs are met
  • Define and fulfill long term simulation requirements including certification aspects of the simulation platform

Job Requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree in an engineering discipline with 10+ years of relevant experience
  • Minimum 5 years of experience working with and integrating aircraft avionics (FMS, EGPWS, WXR, TCAS, ACARS, CPDLC, VOR/DME, etc), preferably in a real-time simulation environment
  • Experience working with ARINC 429, ARINC 664 and ARINC 708
  • Experience setting up and working with HIL/SIL simulations and test environments
  • Familiarity with aircraft systems, aircraft dynamics and aircraft operations
  • Proficiency in C/C++ and python
  • Strong software architecture design and development skills
  • Creative approach to problem solving
  • Excellent organizational and time management skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
