Company Details

Your Choice for Persistent Monitoring


Do you know why it’s called New Space?

ICEYE is building and operating its own commercial constellation of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellites with SAR data already available to customers. These satellites can take images of Earth at any time – even when it’s cloudy or dark. Information derived from these images will help our customers understand the world better and help them make more intelligent decisions. We launched the world’s first SAR microsatellite in January 2018 and have raised $65M in financing to date.

We are a Finnish based international New Space company with employees from roughly 40 countries and subsidiaries in the US, UK and Poland. Our team is a tight-knit group of experts from a range of areas including engineering, software development, and radar technology. We’re innovative, driven, and strive for excellence in everything we do. We don’t listen to people who say it can’t be done: we go and do it!

To support the growth of the company, we are looking for a Mechanical Design Engineer to join the Mechanical team based in the headquarters in Espoo, Finland.

As the Mechanical Design Engineer, you will work closely with other engineers to ensure future improvements to the satellites. You will also be involved in the whole development cycle of new subsystems. The Mechanical Team’s core focus is to design and qualify spacecraft structures and related mechanical hardware.

What you will do:

  • Work closely with “Mech” team members and other engineering teams to develop and improve mechanical hardware.
  • Design and qualification of satellite mechanical hardware.
  • Tackling challenges present in the new space engineering approach.
  • Assisting in assembly, integration and testing of hardware as needed.
  • Pushing the envelope of what a small radar satellite can do.

What you need to succeed:

  • BSc/BE or higher education in Mechanical/Structural Engineering.
  • Prior experience in Autodesk Inventor (or ability to switch from a similar design app).
  • Solid understanding of structures and manufacturing processes.
  • 5 years of experience working as a mechanical/aerospace engineer.
  • Excellent people and communication skills.
  • Ability to work independently and proactively.
  • Capability to tackle unconventional tasks and problems.
  • Strong troubleshooting and analytical skills.
  • Willingness to be involved in the whole life cycle of the satellite.
  • Hands-on approach: be prepared to use a screwdriver!

Nice to have:

  • Experience in space systems.
  • Prior experience in working with workshop tools (milling machine, lathe).
  • Prior experience with deployable mechanical systems.
  • Prior experience working with honeycomb/sandwich structures.
  • Willingness to manage small projects.
  • Prior experience with Hyperworks/Hypermesh, NASTRAN, or similar packages.

Our perks and benefits:

  • A job that matters in a dynamic New Space environment with a scale-up approach
  • An independent role with a supportive and diverse work environment
  • Occupational healthcare, occupational and private insurance
  • A yearly benefit budget to spend as you wish (i.e. on sport, transport, wellness, lunch, etc.)
  • Relocation support (i.e. flight tickets, accommodation, relocation buddy program)
  • Time for self-development, research, training, conferences, or certification schemes
  • Inspiring and collaborating offices and silent workspaces enabling you to focus
  • Regular internal events for employees (e.g. sports events, team-building events, parties etc.)
  • A wide variety of best coffee, tea, snacks, and sweets to accompany your daily space mission
  • Unleash your potential with us and join our next space mission coming up soon!

We are looking forward to receiving your application in English.
