    What we are building

    Open Cosmos is revolutionising the way space technology is used.

    Driven by the vision of making space accessible to anyone, we provide simple and affordable space missions using nanosatellite technology. We went from design to delivery of our first nanosatellite qb01 in only four months, followed by its launch and deployment in LEO early April 2017.

    The company is currently developing the next generation of satellites and end-to-end services for private and institutional customers to be launched in 2018. Based in the Harwell-Oxford Campus in the UK, we are a young and ambitious team with experience in the aerospace, electronics and software industries. To support our growth and make our vision a reality we are looking for the brightest minds and the best talents in every domain.

    The following job opportunity is available:

    Open Cosmos is seeking a front-end developer to take over the development of our main web-app which is currently used for design & simulation of satellite missions, and which eventually will be used for satellite operations.

    Our frontend uses:

    – Angular 5

    – SemanticUI

    With tooling:

    – npm

    – TypeScript

    – Webpack

    We have an active and collaborative social environment within the company.

    You will have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of space engineering while working on our projects alongside space engineers and a highly experienced satellite fleet operator who has previously operated several $billion of space assets.

    Reciprocally, you will be able to help them to gain a (much needed) better understanding user-interface design.
