Senior Electrical Engineer

German Orbital Systems is a Berlin based space technology company focusing on innovative, small satellite missions. With 10 satellites in orbit, we are one of the most quickly developing NewSpace companies in Germany. Our customers include companies, universities and governmental institutions.

Multiple new projects will be kicked off in 2020. They will involve the development of a new, much more capable satellite bus. All existing first-gen systems will have to undergo a redesign in order to meet the high requirements of the next gen platform.
To achieve our 2020 goals, we are on the hunt for a Senior Hardware/Electrical engineer to develop our spacecraft hardware.
