Are you a person that enjoys empowering your team to build effective relationships and software? Want to shake up the "we've always done it that way" mentality? Then this is the role for you!

As an experienced, talented and creative software engineer you will apply your problem solving and software engineering skills towards the designing, architecting and development of complex software solutions for the spacecraft industry.

    This role starts off with coding and then progresses into a hands-on Lead role focusing on a mixture of coding and mentoring of team members.

    You will be responsible for leading the software development whilst seeding your experience and approach within the team.

    This job requires an awareness of any potential compliance risks and a commitment to act with integrity, as the foundation for the Company’s success, reputation and sustainable growth.
