With reference to the head of the production engineering department, you must contribute to the development of electronic test systems, focusing on the mechanical side of the suitability of test equipment in production, ie. fixtures, probes, handling stands, tools, etc. used in the production of modules for nanosatellites.

You will work closely with the other colleagues in the PTA department as well as developers in the R&D department in order to transfer the design documentation to equipment and tools used in production. Your overall area of ​​responsibility is to support production with automated tests, as well as with tests on products where the automated test is still under development.
