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

As System Engineering and V&V Engineer you will be part of the System Engineering, VV and Tests team.

You will contribute to the definition of the System Engineering principles and associated V&V strategy applicable to programs. As our product is a brand new type of aircraft, you will rationalise System engineering principles to the right level in order to reach a permit to fly and then a certification. Accordingly V&V deliverables will have to be delivered/updated in due time according to the different development milestones.

You will, as well, implement SE and VV principles (not limited to) within a preselected PLM (Product Life Management) tool suite in order to ensure global coherency within different building blocks and ensure that all relevant means are in place with regards to ARP4754 and other development/safety standards applicable to our VTOL.

Your objectives

  • Define system engineering processes and tools that will encompass a/c functions and requirements.
  • Define / Update Program V&V Plans and other V&V deliverables requested for each milestone
  • Participate to the A/C V&V Strategy definition for prototype and final product. Strategy has to take into account the longer term certification in order to optimize the cost and time.
  • Support building Blocks V&V Managers
  • Be responsible for PLM implementation and support to ensure
  •  full traceability as part of V&V
  • PLM configuration in close relation with the configuration manager
