We are an aerospace start-up based in Barcelona and Toulouse and we are focused on developing disruptive technologies for small satellite launch vehicles. 

Our mission is to develop the technology that enables a more efficient, sustainable, and commercial access to space. We successfully tested a world’s first 3D printed aerospike engine, introducing several new technologies into its design. And we are leading the development of innovative launcher technology making reusable rockets the catalyst for sustainable and low-cost access to space.

We are privately funded, supported by national and European institutions and a strong network of European partners.

About the job:

Within the propulsion department, you will be participating in the development of Pangea Aerospace’s in-space propulsion systems, especially focused on the design of thrusters and propellant feed systems.

Your challenges and responsibilities:

  • Support the development of in-space propulsion systems using storable green propellants 
  • Design of mono- and bipropellant thrusters for in-space use 
  • Design of spacecraft propellant feed systems and components 
  • Analysis of propulsion system and subcomponents (performance, heat transfer, stresses, etc.) 

What you need to be successful:

  • Currently following a university degree in Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or similar.
  • Have an understanding of chemical propulsion systems, and the working principles of monopropellant and bipropellant thrusters.
  • (University) Experience in mathematical modeling (MATLAB, Python, Excel, etc.), especially related to chemical propulsion systems.
  • (University) Experience with CAD-Tools, preferably using Siemens NX 
  • Fluency in the English language 

More about us… 

We are an international and very multicultural team. Our work is guided by these core values:

  • Teamwork, because we strive in working together as an aligned team towards our common goals. 
  • Respect & tolerance: we value people with integrity that treat other people with respect. We enjoy having diverse views to enrich the debate and take better decisions.
  • Passion for growth: we are passionate about space and about being pioneers; also, we value personal and organizational growth aiming to a constant improvement. 
  • Sustainability: because a long-term vision and strategy is not possible if sustainability is not in the team’s core values. 
  • Daring: we do things that sometimes seem impossible, but we always go the extra mile to find a path to do them and we are ready to take the necessary risks to achieve our goals.

If this sounds good to you and you want to join the New Space revolution, we really want to meet you!
