Ready to make connectivity from space universally accessible, secure, and actionable? Then you’ve come to the right place!

At E-Space, we’re focused on bridging Earth and space with the world’s most sustainable low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite network. We’re a team of bold thinkers, ambitious leaders and dynamic doers—and we’re disrupting NewSpace by fundamentally changing the design of legacy LEO space systems to deliver entirely new satellite capabilities at a fraction of the cost.

We’re intentional, we’re unapologetically curious and we’re 100% committed—to saving space, to protecting our planet and to turning connectivity into actionable intelligence.

What is the role:

  • As a GNC software engineer, you will focus on developing and maintaining E-Space Satellite Simulations. You will work with E-Space GNC and Embedded Software engineers to implement and test the GNC algorithms in our satellite’s real-time flight software. You will also work on improving the GNC flight-code for optimal performance and robustness to failures.
  •  This position will report to the GNC Lead. This position will be based in Saratoga, CA.

What you will do:

  • Develop, maintain and test flight-code in software/hardware in the loop simulations.
  • Develop and maintain Monte Carlo Simulations.
  • Develop tools for analyzing simulation and hardware data in real-time and in post-processing settings.
  • Interface with software engineers to integrate and test controls and estimation software.
  • Improve, and follow software configuration management and code development and integration processes.
  • Interact cross-functionally with other subsystem engineers, providing support as needed.
  • Participate, present, and prepare documentation for engineering reviews.

What you bring to this role:

  • Must have graduated and have hands-on experience coding 6DOF simulations and controllers for a real-time embedded application.
  • Must be local or willing to relocate.
  • BS +4 years / MS +2 year in Software, Electrical, Aerospace Engineering, or equivalent field of study.
  • At least 1+ year of professional experience in software development in C/C++ and Matlab/Simulink.
  • Experience in object-oriented programming methodology and multi-layer system architectures.
  • Knowledge of spacecraft dynamics and orbital mechanics.
  • Knowledge of PID, optimal controllers, and state estimation.
  • Knowledge of software testing procedures and test case design, including experience in designing fault tolerant software.
  • Experience with Git and Linux.

Bonus points:

  • Hands-on experience with building and debugging complex software.
  • Experience with spacecraft GNC hardware/software, including design and testing processes.
  • Experience in writing autonomy software for space/aerial/ground vehicles.
  • Experience developing visualization and graphics engines.
  • Experience with machine learning and artificial intelligence.
We are redefining how satellites are designed, manufactured and used—so we’re looking for candidates with passion, deep knowledge and direct experience on LEO satellite component development, design and in-orbit activities. If that’s your experience – then we’ll be immediately wow-ed.
