Archer is an aerospace company based in San Jose, California building an all-electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft with a mission to advance the benefits of sustainable air mobility. We are designing, manufacturing, and operating an all-electric aircraft that can carry four passengers for 60 miles at speeds of up to 150 mph while producing minimal noise.

Our sights are set high and our problems are hard, and we believe that diversity in the workplace is what makes us smarter, drives better insights, and will ultimately lift us all to success. We are dedicated to cultivating an equitable and inclusive environment that embraces our differences, and supports and celebrates all of our team members.

What You’ll Do

  • Create wiring diagrams and associated wire harness drawing documentation using Mentor Graphics Capital, Logic and HarnessXC.
  • Create wire harness 3D models in Siemens NX using the electrical toolset and integrate the design into the aircraft.
  • Modify conformal aircraft harnesses to add wiring for test lab specific needs (tap ins, relays, data logging, switches, power supplies).
  • Understand and implement communication protocols (ARINC, CAN, Ethernet, Serial).
  • Follow industry best practices and guidance for the design and installation of the wire harnesses (FAR25 Subpart H and FAR23, AC 43.13-1B, AS50881, ASTM F2639).
  • Work with avionics, power plant and electrical engineering teams to define the system architecture and wiring connections, including grounding schemes and EMI mitigation strategies.
  • Apply knowledge of industry standard components to select optimal parts to suit specific design applications and requirements.
  • Troubleshoot and test wiring during lab bring up, test and operation, and offer resolutions and rework instructions when required.
  • Use strong configuration and change management skills to track and match the changes to the lab and production configurations with the design progression of the aircraft.
