Simera Sense is hiring for the following positions; Optomechanical Engineer, Junior AIT Mechanical Engineer, Senior Electronic Firmware Engineer, Senior Electronics Hardware Design Engineer, Senior Optomechanical Engineer, and Supply Chain Planner. The positions are full-time and are in Somerset West, South Africa.

1. Senior Electronics Hardware Design Engineer

The applicant will be responsible for designing, testing, and integrating digital and electro-optical electronic systems for the aerospace sector.

Key Responsibilities
  • Development of high-reliability mixed-signal Electronics Assemblies for use on spacecraft, from concept to qualification;
  • Development of ground test and development equipment;
  • Participate in design reviews; and
  • Assist with assembly, integration, and test campaigns.
Required Skills
  • 5+ years of experience in the design of high-speed FPGA electronics systems;
  • 5+ years of experience in high-speed, high-density PCB routing in 8+ layers;
  • 5+ years of experience in using Altium Designer or Pads Professional;
  • Good understanding of high-speed digital, low-noise analogue, and high-reliability design practices; in terms of schematics, PCB layout, and test and measurement; and 
  • Solid technical report writing skills using MS Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel).

2. Optomechanical Engineer

The successful candidate will assist with designing, evaluating, integrating, and testing electro-optical imaging systems for use in spaceborne applications such as CubeSats. In addition, the incumbent will be required to merge numerous multiphysics design requirements into a single instrument and subsequently collaborate with mechanical and electronic engineers and designers. Therefore, previous experience designing optomechanical systems or precision mechanics is a must, with great attention to detail and a passion for success. The successful candidate will be immersed in a fast-paced, team-based, and challenging technical environment, which can push the boundaries of what is achievable with optical payloads in the CubeSat domain.
