Made In Space Europe believes that industrialising space is the next critical step in humanity’s push to go deeper and farther into the cosmos than ever before. Made In Space Europe is developing robotic technologies to enable commercial activity in Earth orbit, on other planets, and beyond.
Made In Space Europe is looking for an Assembly Technician to fulfill a technical support role on the Engineering team. You are ready to put your skills to work, becoming involved in the technical development of robotic arms bound for space. You have experience in a workshop, with demonstrated CNC experience. Your role will require you to have your hands on many types of equipment, so the broader your experience, the better. We tend to use 3D printers for prototyping and testing; experience with G-code and 3D printing techniques is a benefit.
You will be primarily based in the machine shop, manufacturing space-optimized mechanisms for robotic arms. Test engineers will rely on your help designing and maintaining testing rigs. Design engineers will need your help in the machine shop, making parts and prototypes for space robots. You are inclined to complex mechanical work, and you have the confidence to lead tasks alone. You have the experience needed to advise on how to prototype parts and assemble complex mechanisms to ensure speed, functionality, and safety for yourself, your teammates, and our robots.
- Manufacturing mechanisms for robotic arms and prototypes
- Primary operator of machining equipment at in-house facilities; advise on best practices
- Support design engineers in 3D modeling efforts and provide assembly feedback via ‘redlining’
- Support test engineers to design and build test rigs for component and subsystem testing
- Participate, when appropriate, in the maintenance and repair of machine shop facilities
- Trade school degree or demonstrated experience with mill & lathe (CNC and manual)
- Very proficient in a busy machine shop
- Passionate about tinkering with and fixing things
- Ambitious and eager to learn and participate
PREFERRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
- Experience with precision machining equipment (i.e. CNC grinder, electric discharge machining, or similar)
- Knowledge of 3D printers and 3D printer processes (i.e. 3D design, printer maintenance/customization, troubleshooting, slicer software)
- German language and/or French language
- Software-based 3D modeling
Interested, but not sure you meet every single requirement? Research shows that men will apply to jobs when they meet only 60% of the requirements, but women and other minority groups may only apply if they’re sure they meet 100%. If you were turning away because you don’t meet 100%, well, we’d still like to hear from you – tell us how you’re the best fit for the requirements you’re sure you meet.
