  • You focus on identifying solutions.
  • You always look for, and accept, significant challenges.
  • You possess the delicate balance of being pushy and persistent on the one hand, and empathic and supporting on the other.
  • You are an excellent communicator and you get along in the organization.

You are offered

You will have the opportunity to become part of an internationally oriented and dedicated team aiming at providing exceptional Nanosatellite solutions to customers in the global market and your effort will make a difference to society in the future.

You will join a culture where you are expected to contribute with dedication, skills and the will to implement the goals. The work culture is informal with transparent communication and an organization built up by multidisciplinary skills and engineering passion.
