The MSP is looking to fill its engineering team to begin initial design work on our next nano-satellite ACRUX-2.

As part of this team, you would actively practice technical skills (learn how best practice project management implementing agile principles in a complex project environment) and work on your core skills such as communication and building research capability.
Beyond this project, you would have the opportunity to experiment across different engineering disciplines while owning the mission and priority work as a team, interacting with industry professionals across space and broader technology industries.
