Our world is changing. And so are we. From our commitment to zero-carbon flight (#ZEROe) to cleaning up space, sustainability is at the heart of our purpose. So what’s your next change?

Are you a candidate with a background in Python based software engineering? Are you motivated to apply this skill set to digital solution development within aerospace engineering? Are you open to learning the engineering point of view and keen to coach and mentor traditional mindsets?  We offer you a key role with significant growth potential as a core contributor to the digital transformation of Landing Systems Engineering and Airbus.

Landing systems are:

  • A complex area of aerospace requiring the integration of systems, structural and design engineering disciplines.
  • Highly integrated into the aircraft functions being key during the ground, take off and landing phases.
  • Operated in a harsh environment with several consumables such as tyres and brakes

This area of engineering is ripe for digital transformation. We are embracing the data revolution, and bringing digital technology and data science to the forefront of what we do. 


  • Ensure we take the best approach developing software solutions and technically integrating these into the Airbus technology and capability landscape. This may include targeting deployment on the aircraft product and working with Airbus’s leading aviation data ecosystem: Skywise.  
  • Specifying digital solution and software architectures by working with higher level architects.
  • Enable the team to develop modular software that leverages API driven approaches when appropriate.
  • Support the creation of DevOps pipelines.
  • Define software development best practices.
  • Contribute as a key or lead software developer in the implementation of one or more digital solution products.


  • We are open to varied technical backgrounds and experiences.
  • Significant experience in Python.
  • Experience delivering in an Agile team.
  • Experience deploying and maintaining software in multi-cloud and on-prem environments, with potential familiarity with AWS.
  • Familiarity with CI/CD and DevSecOps.
  • Values trust and team togetherness.


Many of our staff work flexibly in many different ways, including part-time. Please talk to us at interview about the flexibility you need and we’ll always do our best to accommodate your request. 

Please let us know if you need us to make any reasonable adjustments for the selection process – you can share this with your Talent Acquisition Partner if you are invited to interview. Examples may include (but not exclusive to) accessible facilities; auxiliary aids; room layout, etc. Any information disclosed will be treated in the strictest confidence.


This job requires an awareness of any potential compliance risks and a commitment to act with integrity, as the foundation for the Company’s success, reputation and sustainable growth.
