  • Are able to learn quickly and use initiative to understand complex systems, with their inherent dependencies.
  • Are able to work to tight deadlines and manage one’s own time and the demanding expectations of the projects


  • Familiarity with space projects and with ESA and ECSS standards are highly desirable.
  • Some experience in a design engineering role in European space/aerospace projects.
  • Knowledge of DOORS or other Requirements Management Software.
  • Formal knowledge of Systems Engineering (e.g. INCOSE).

Your Benefits:

  • Flexible working hours with a core time
  • A relaxed working environment with a flat hierarchy combined with a motivated and open team
