Job Description:
We are seeking a passionate and skilled Electronics Engineer who is a quick learner and enthusiastic about space-related applications. If you want to join a young and dynamic organization whose mission is to design and build cutting-edge technology that will revolutionize the space sector, this may be the right opportunity for you!
The candidate will join the engineering division of the company, a fast-growing team who is applying advanced research and engineering skills, contributing to the development of the SolarCube, a lightweight and compact EPS (electronics power system) for satellites characterized by a novel origami-inspired folding structure. The candidate will be responsible for designing, testing, and maintaining electronic systems and components.

Key Responsibilities:
• Being the main developer for the electronics of the SolarCube EPS and implementing its main functionalities (route solar panel power to loads and batteries, charge/discharge lithium batteries, monitor and sensing system status).
• Write technical documentation (HW and SW requirements, block diagrams, system diagrams, design justification files, etc.).
• Design rigid-flex electronic circuits using Altium software (schematics, layout, gerber, BOM, PCB specification, procurement, etc.).
• Creation of schematic and layout footprints.
• Plan, develop and conduct tests to ensure the functionality and reliability of electronic systems and components are satisfied.
• Troubleshoot and debug electronic circuits and systems as needed.
• Collaborate with cross-functional teams to integrate electronic systems into final products.
• Stay up to date with industry developments and advancements in electronics engineering.
• Master the ECSS documentation related to electronics development and testing.
