Role: Engineering team member
Reports to: Lead Project Engineers
Ideal start date: ASAP
Length: 6 months minimum
Location: Level 2, 333 Exhibition Street, Melbourne
Ideal availability: Flexible
We are looking for students with a keen interest in space who are excited about being part of a team that successfully launched a satellite into space while delivering a world class training program.
The engineering team has two primary focal points which you would shift through:
- fleshing out a project vision with industry mentors and other students to assess what challenges we want to undertake on a next mission that is aligned with a cohesive mission roadmap; and
- taking part of the engineering team in designing, testing and launching a satellite that would be focused on solving real-world challenges.
As part of this team, you would actively practice technical skills (hands-on work and learn how best practice project management implementing agile principles in a complex project environment) and work on your core skills such as communication. You would have the opportunity to experiment across different engineering disciplines while owning the mission and priority work as a team, interacting heavily with industry professionals across space and broader technology industries. You would also have the opportunity to contribute to a satellite in the design, testing and launch and be in the handful of Australian students to ever design and launch your own satellite.
The time commitment is flexible for this role: we believe in taking ownership of issues and getting things done rather than strict hours per week schedule. We accommodate your study needs and will plan work around other commitments, especially during the exam period.
