As a Satellite Electronics Systems Engineer you would take the technical lead of the satellite electronic aspects over their entire lifecycle. It starts by understanding the customer electronic requirements, translating them into satellite equipment level requirements, and then establishing/maintaining the satellite electronic budgets.

You would have to evaluate supplier proposals/datasheets, participate in the selection of electronic equipment, and monitor the progress of (internal/external) suppliers by assessing the technical work (for example, through design reviews).

You would also be required to participate in the satellite level verification campaign, make sure the design and test results are properly documented, and, finally, assist in the launch campaign and in orbit verification.


  • • Master degree in Electronics Engineering
  • • +5 years relevant experience in a similar technical environment
  • • Strong technical knowledge on electronic equipment selection and design, integration, and verification of electronic systems is an asset
  • • Fluency in English
  • • Pro-active, creative, enthusiastic, and result-oriented team player with strong planning, organizational, and communication skills
  • • Natural problem-solver who is not afraid of ‘getting your hands dirty’ when needed.

You’ll not only get to work in a well-known space company offering flexibility, work-life balance, and an open and friendly working environment, but you will also become one of the privileged engineers that can say some of the hardware they helped built is actually orbiting the Earth!
