Space Systems Engineer

Toulouse, France

Full-Time

About the Company

We are a deeptech Newspace company founded in 2017. Following three years of artificial intelligence development at Stanford and Singapore, the team has now settled in Toulouse in 2020 to start its In-Orbit Servicing activities. We are now a team of 15 with 10 nationalities, exporting our activities over 4 continents. Our Mission is to offer satellite operators a competitive way of managing their fleet, from Inspection & Surveillance to Life Extension Services. Space Infrastructure is growing and so the need for maintaining the assets in orbits.
Our first two servicers are scheduled for launch in September 2022 and Q1 2023 in GEO Orbit enabling a steady revenue stream for the next stage development of our technologies.
