Very strong background in MATLAB and control systems design. Strong mathematical background and problem-solving skills. Hands-on experience with hardware-in-the-loop testing and embedded processors.  

Nice to have’s  

Hands on experience with nanosatellite ADCS. Experience in C coding for embedded systems. Understanding of orbital mechanics and orbital dynamics. Any background in RF, systems engineering, power electronics, or thermal management systems will be helpful. Broad and active knowledge of the global space industry.
