Post date:


We are an engineering firm operating in space propulsion, currently developing ion propulsion systems for the European Space Agency. We are looking for a Mechanical Engineer candidate with strong numerical, 3D CAD modelling, and simulations (OpenFOAM) skills. The role will involve design, testing, and engineering development tasks of mechanical systems, as well as detailed systems reporting and additional engineering tasks within the company. The role will have a strong electronics component. We are carrying out research with such elite universities as Imperial College and UCL, and as a consequence successful candidates will be interacting with some of the UK's top researchers.

We are looking for candidates with strong work ethic, ability to perform under time pressure, and with an ability to learn new topics quickly. Successful candidates will be offered a full time position in our London office, and in the unfortunate case where we aren't a good fit, candidates will be able to sell in the open market an experience with a deep technology firm working for government agencies.

Looking forward to hear from you!


BSc, MSc, Phd in a quantitative or engineering field.
