Lead Electric Propulsion Engineer (Senior) - URA Thrusters

Job Description

Are you fascinated about Space and Space propulsion? Do you have experience developing Electric propulsion systems for Space applications?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a lead of our current and future Electric Propulsion (EP) engines at URA Thrusters. From water-based Hall-effect thrusters (AQUAHET), to novel and disruptive ion engines, cathodes, cathodeless thrusters, etc. 

In this full-time role, based at the new URA facilities in Westcott, with fully dedicated MAIT workshops and propulsion testing facilities, you will have the opportunity to be a hands-on engineer, and help deliver those propulsion solutions to a wide range of customers, missions and platforms. The two first ones (ICE and PET) will fly early next year (2024).

After only 2 years, you could also move to our new subsidiary in San Sebastian (Basque Country, ES), famous for its food, beaches, culture and hiking opportunities.
