Company Details

Electro Optic Systems Pty Ltd (EOS) is a leading Australian technology company operating in the space and defence markets. Our products incorporate advanced electro-optic applications based on EOS core technologies in software, laser, electronics, optronics, gimbals, telescopes and beam directors, and precision mechanisms.

Electro Optic Systems (EOS) Space Systems is focused on the design, manufacture and delivery of electro optic systems which enhance and support orbital data services to the space industry. Since 1983 we have developed systems for astrodynamic analysis, ground to space tracking of orbiting bodies and satellite laser ranging. This heritage allows for the development of new technologies in support of space assets and debris management, including orbit maintenance support.

Our Australian designs include high accuracy beam director telescopes, laser systems, imaging systems and pico-second time interval systems. We develop and integrate fully autonomous software control for space sensor networks and provide space domain awareness, object characterisation, space object cataloguing, high accuracy orbit determination and orbital projection, and conjunction assessments.

EOS Space Systems is a subsidiary of Electro Optics Systems (ASX:EOS) which has achieved rapid growth over recent years. EOS is an equal opportunity employer and we offer flexible work arrangements, flexible hours, paid parental leave, employee incentive scheme and additional annual leave.

 Job Description

About the Role

EOS Space Systems requires an experienced senior mechanical design engineer. Candidates need to possess strong fundamental knowledge of general mechanical engineering practices backed by hands-on experience in designing large scale metallic and composite structures, servo-drive systems and gearboxes, precision positioners and encoders and electro-opto-mechanical assemblies.

Duties will include:

  • Structural design and analysis of telescopes and telescope enclosures.
  • Implement retrofits and redesign sub-systems and components for existing EOS telescopes.
  • Oversee and supervise on-site telescope builds.
  • Liaise with suppliers and sub-contractors and manage delivery and installation of telescope sub-systems and components to tight timeframes.
  • Develop design documentation within a systems engineering framework.

About You

Ideally, you would have a strong background in designing, implementing and testing telescopes, telescope enclosures, positioning systems and servo drives. Applicants must be confident in working in fast-pace multi-disciplinary engineering environments.

It is essential that you have:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering
  • Experience in designing large scale metallic and composite structures, servo-drive systems and/or high-accuracy positioning systems. Exposure to telescope systems will be highly regarded
  • Ability to optimise complex system designs by combining COTS and bespoke components
  • Ability to solve complex engineering problems in collaboration with multiple disciplines, under minimal or no supervision

It is desirable if you can also demonstrate experience coordinating complex multi-disciplinary installs and excellent schedule management ability. Post graduate qualification would also be an advantage.

You must be an Australian Citizen and eligible to obtain and maintain an Australian Government security clearance and Australian Passport.

How to Apply

If you are willing to take on a challenge and want to make a contribution to a proud Australian company that is growing rapidly then we would like to hear from you. Please forward your resume and a covering letter outlining your experience and why you believe you are the right fit for our organisation.

We may review, short-list and/or conduct interviews for this role prior to the closing date. We encourage the submission of early applications.
