Space Machines Company (SMC) is an Australian start-up developing in-space logistics and transportation capabilities to cost-effectively insert small satellites into desired low earth orbits (LEO), geostationary earth orbits (GEO) and lunar orbits. SMC vehicles will grow in future to maintain, refuel, repair and decommission satellites and other spacecraft.
In this Sydney based role, you will apply your systems engineering knowledge across the lifecycle of a spacecraft. No two days will be the same, with opportunities to develop and learn in the areas you are interested in. The role will involve engineering from early design studies, through manufacture, assembly, integration, test, launch and operations. Most of all you will be working with a team to create Australia’s very own Orbital Transport and Servicing Vehicles.
The role will include:
We are looking for someone who is inspired by a challenge, will help grow our company capability, and remain flexible to use their skillset to drive outcomes for the company.
Ideally, you would have a technical or engineering background in the space or related industry, combined with 2-5 years of systems engineering experience. You will understand spacecraft systems, potentially with a background in one or more spacecraft subsystems design and manufacture.
You will have knowledge of the systems engineering lifecycle, in particular the early phases from concept through to design, requirements management. Ideally you will have experience of using tools to carry out Mission analysis/simulation. Experience of Model Based Systems Engineering would be an added benefit but is not required.
You will need the ability to work in a start-up environment and grow with us as our capabilities expand. Communication and stakeholder management skills will be key to the success of this role, and we expect you to be a pro-active, creative, enthusiastic and results oriented.
Some interstate and international travel may be required for the role. The ability to obtain an Australian Defence security clearance will be a benefit, but not essential.
