Loft Orbital builds “shareable” satellites, providing a fast & simple path to orbit for organizations that require access to space. Powered by our hardware & software products, we operate satellites, fly customer payloads onboard, and handle entire missions from end to end - significantly reducing the lead-time and risk of a traditional space mission.
About This Role:
- Manoeuvre planning and optimization analysis
- Simulate satellite operations in orbit (orbit propagation, satellite orientation, power and data budgets)
- Perform satellite constellation design, simulation and assess of different scenarios (coverage, availability)
- Contribute toOpen Space Toolkit mathematics, physics, astrodynamics libraries
- End to end software development from defining requirements to software design, implementation through to testing and documentation.
- Using an established framework, adapt the software to meet individual customer payload needs.
- Support product development, constellation performance demonstrations, and training.
- Problem solve mission design using performance analysis data
- Bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, or related discipline.
- Experience in astrodynamics and constellation design
- Experience in satellite manœuvres models
- Knowledge and hands on experience of using Python
- Experience with STK or other modeling tool (Orekit, FreeFlyer etc.)
- Ability to work in a fast-paced startup within Agile teams
- Scrappy and inventive
Nice to Haves:
- Version control (git) and continuous integration tools (GitLab CI, Jenkins, Travis CI, …)
- Exposure to Docker containers or Django framework
