Job Title:

Avionics Systems Lead


REGENT is building the first electric flying machine that will transport commercial passengers. With a vehicle that never flies higher than a few meters off the water, we unlock the ability to fly twice as far as an electric aircraft, and certification by maritime authorities which will let us fly first passengers within 5 years.  

We are actively hiring passionate team members who can help us get our vehicle, the seaglider, to market as quickly and safely as possible. We are backed by the world’s best investors: the same investors who are behind SpaceX, Palantir, Boom Supersonic, and more. We have nearly half a billion dollars in provisional orders from some of the industry’s largest operators, and are ready to hit the ground running.

Working at REGENT, you’ll be in a fast-paced environment with exciting new challenges daily and abundant opportunities for growth. Your coworkers are passionate about building zero-emission, high-speed seagliders that will revolutionize coastal transportation. Our small team works collaboratively and across disciplines to safely marry the latest technologies from aerospace and nautical engineering. REGENT offers competitive benefits including healthcare, dental, and vision plans as well as an employee equity incentive plan.


As the Avionics Systems Lead at REGENT you will work to design, analyze, fabricate, integrate and test avionics and electrical systems for our seaglider vehicles. We are looking for someone who understands hardware implementation of low voltage power systems and data busses (RS485, CAN and Ethernet) to be able either specify components and work with vendors to procure solutions or create custom solutions from scratch. This role will also require the skills sets to complete schematic capture and layout of PCBs and harnessing for test equipment and vehicle systems. As a start up, everyone at REGENT is hands on and as such this role will require experience in fabrication of electrical components through the use of standard fabrication tools and processes. Applicants should also be familiar with standard electrical test equipment (oscilloscopes, multimeters, data acquisitions systems, etc.) so as to set up and perform testing of electrical components and subsystems.

This role may evolve into a leadership role and progress to support future product development. Travel will be required to varying degrees depending on the stage of the program.  

Required Skills:

  • Passion for maritime, aerospace vehicles and their electrification
  • Experience with low voltage power distribution and protection
  • Experience with serial networks, particularly CAN, RS485/422 and ethernet.
  • Strong organization and communication skills, willingness to learn and teach
  • Biased towards action while maintaining a focus on safety and quality
  • 7+ years of experience in the aerospace, maritime or automotive fields
  • Experience using MATLAB/Simulink, Python or other programming tools for varying purposes ranging from data reduction to analysis/simulation
  • Familiarity with circuit and harness design and analysis tools such as Altium, LTSpice,  RapidHarness or equivalent
  • Solid foundation in electrical engineering principles including basic circuit design, signal processing, transmission line theory, etc.
  • Hobby or professional experience wiring and building circuitry for custom solutions
  • Familiar with writing test plans and reports and conducting tests for mechanical and electrical components
  • Hands on experience and familiarity with shop tools and their proper use as well as best practices regarding the assembly and testing of both low and high voltage electrical systems

Recommended Skills:

  • BS/MS in mechanical, electrical or aerospace engineering
  • Experience with energy storage systems such as Lithium-Polymer or Lithium-Ion batteries
  • Experience with high power electric propulsion systems and power electronics
  • Fundamental understanding of mechanical and thermal engineering concepts.
  • Prototyping and production manufacturing experience
  • Experience with a CAD package such as CATIA, NX or Solidworks
  • FAA pilot’s license or boating/sailing experience


This position can be remote but monthly travel to Boston is to be expected.   You should have flexibility for relocation as the company grows (relocation will be made available).
