Our mission

At Ascendance we are building tomorrow’s hybrid-electric aviation with ATEA, a unique Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft powered by STERNA, our in-house hybrid-electric propulsion system. We focus our efforts in designing an innovative, safe, silent, clean and affordable aircraft that will be able to blend into existing infrastructures and regulations to ease its deployment and maximise social acceptance.
If you are looking for a place where you will have a direct impact on very ambitious products, where you will work close to the hardware and where you can witness the result of your hard work quickly, board ATEA and come fly with us toward the future of aviation!

Your role

Your role : 🔎

Within the STERNA team you will be the assigned system engineer to cover the EHPS (Electric and Hybrid Propulsion System) development within the aircraft (ATEA) development. Doing so, you will be the owner of the EHPS specification and development organization, making sure that aircraft requirements and design principles are cascaded down to the entire propulsion team.

You will be in charge of ensuring full traceability between aircraft demands and the EHPS subsystems specifications as well as maintaining overall design coherence. This includes specifications, functional and logical modeling, validation and verification compliance, as well as setting up adequate processes for demonstrators and type certification preparation.



Your objectives

Your main responsibilities will be : 

  • Setting up the functional analysis and logical modeling
  • Ensuring the traceability from aircraft stakeholder need specification onto EHPS specification
  • Determining EHPS needs specifications for EHPS subsystems by allocating requirements to the various subsystems
  • Supporting the design trade-offs
  • Consolidating the system engineering processes and adapt for demonstrators / type certification
  • Interfacing with RAMS engineering team, as well as technical experts on each system
  • Coordinating Sterna team’s response to aircraft specification including MOC definition and IVV efforts


Where do we stand?

You will be entering the team during a crucial part of our development. Full scale testbenches are ongoing while full scale aircraft development is running at full speed with many issues to tackle regarding communications networks and associated developments. You will be working in an interdisciplinary team to find global compromise while being given a high level view of the aircraft and propulsion system’s requirements.
