Description of the job

Do you have Matlab and Simulink experience? Are you interested in learning about Aerospace, Space crafts and Project Management? Do you have filtering or control Engineering experience? Wanting to join a knowledgeable team who knowledge shares and where your ideas are not only listen to – but actioned as well?

Then this is the role for you?

You will be trained to be an AOCS / GNC (Attitude and Orbital Control System/Guidance, Navigation and Control) engineer. You will have the support of a Manager who is well versed in training and supporting people, alongside a team who will be happy to share knowledge with you.

As an AOCS / GNC Engineer, you will be working on Spacecraft lifecycles, end-to-end. Developing a wide range of skills such as Aerospace, Project Management and creating new concepts and ideas. You will be working on unique projects that no one else is doing, has done, worldwide.

You will be working on current and future space missions. The job is a stimulating blend of learning and technical work and the successful candidate will gain extensive experience in the design and analysis of space mission GNC, for both small studies and large projects. The department provides the AOCS/GNC engineering analysis and support to a number of large ESA projects currently being conducted at Airbus DS - including Solar Orbiter (observing the Sun's heliosphere and solar wind), and ExoMars Rover (a mission to land and operate an autonomous rover vehicle on Mars).
