Job Title

Human-Machine Interface and Simulation Engineer


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 daily challenges to overcome and 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.


This Human Machine Interface Engineer role is a multifaceted engineering role--we are looking for a rockstar that can design the system and then lead the implementation.  Initial tasking includes assisting our software team build a complete mission simulation environment, the development of engineering interfaces for our avionics system, and leading the development and testing of the operator interfaces for the Seaglider vehicle. These vehicles have novel control and autonomous functionality across multiple operational modes (hull-borne, hydrofoil-borne, wing-borne) requiring unique operator interaction. You will have a significant role in the system architecture and assist our engineering team to bring the design to life. You will work closely with flight controls engineers, systems engineers developing requirements, verification, and validation procedures, and testing engineers. 

Tasks will include:

  • Simulation environment development
  • Engineering, testing, and maintenance user interfaces for vehicle systems
  • Designing the complete crew interface, both physical and digital
  • Communicating with customers, aircraft pilots, ship captains to develop requirements
  • Passenger and crew safety human factors
  • Evaluation of human performance on systems
  • Developing training requirements and materials

As the design matures, you will be involved in subscale and full scale prototype development and testing as well as production craft development, testing, and certification. 

Required Skills

  • Passion for aerospace, strong leadership skills
  • Safety and quality focus
  • 7+ years of experience in applicable aerospace field
  • BS/MS in computer science, aerospace, or related engineering discipline
  • Technical background developing robust user interfaces for aerospace applications
  • C/C++ and Java software development 
  • Experience developing flexible simulation environments

Recommended Skills

  • Experience building environments in Unity or similar graphics environments
  • Experience with communication systems (CAN, ethernet, serial)
  • Development of safety critical components under ARP4754A
  • Familiar with DO-178C or DO-254 development processes
  • Familiar with MATLAB/Simulink
  • Prototyping and production software development experience
  • Flight test or sea trials experience
  • 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).
