Spacecraft Systems Engineer

Our Spacecraft Systems Engineers are involved in a mission from beginning to end.  Starting with writing bids to customers, then developing and analyzing the design during the early mission phases; you will e supporting testing during AIT (and leading system testing), during the launch campaign and finally assisting with in-orbit commissioning of the satellite.

It doesn’t end there though! Even after the mission is in orbit, as a Spacecraft Systems Engineer you may be called upon at critical moments during the mission to provide guidance to the operations team.

This is a chance to join our friendly, welcoming, and diverse team and work on cutting edge missions in an emerging market.
