At Argotec, we build the most innovative, sustainable, and reliable space solutions and missions. Our horizons range from small satellites for Low Earth Orbit and deep space to cutting-edge technologies designed to enhance the comfort of astronauts, space explorers and space tourists. Our expertise leads us to design, build and operate our own products entirely in-house. That means every part of our designs comes to life in our laboratories.

Mission del ruolo

To support the Company increasing number of projects and business opportunities, we are looking for a Test Automation Engineer to work on our flight software, targeting products such as our small satellite platforms and electronics systems for space exploration, communications, and Earth observation applications.As a Test Automation Engineer, you will play a crucial role in ensuring the quality and reliability of our satellites, instruments, and embedded systems through the development and implementation of automated testing solutions. You will collaborate closely with cross-functional teams to design, execute, and maintain test scripts and frameworks, leveraging your expertise in automation tools and methodologies to streamline the testing process. Our goal is to deliver high-quality, reliable, and resilient flight software to make our systems innovative and sustainable.

Here are some example activities and projects that you may work on:

    • Develop new libraries for our modular Test Automation Solution.
    • Evaluate and integrate new automation tools and technologies to enhance testing efficiency and effectiveness.
    • Collaborate with the Embedded Software Engineers to guarantee high-quality flight software through an integrated development-and-test process.
    • Define and validate high-level system requirements to enable robust software development for on-board avionics systems.
    • Define test procedures and execute manual and automated tests based on the requirements.
    • Document test procedures, results, technical issues, and findings, and communicate them to key stakeholders in a clear and concise manner.
    • Collaborate with the other teams inside the organization (e.g. the Flight Operations Unit and the System Engineering Unit) to develop effective strategies and test plans.
    • Design and develop tools and equipment interfaced with the avionics systems, such as communication or power management systems.
    • Develop simulators and digital twin systems.
    • Participate in the integration of the software with on-board avionics systems and complete satellites.

Competenze e caratteristiche

If you are passionate about space exploration and thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment, we want to hear from you. We are after individuals curious about technology, eager to learn, and open minded to be part of a team dedicated to shaping the future of space exploration.

We consider these general skills and experience valuable for this role:

    • MSc in Computer Engineering, Electronics Engineering or related fields (proven experience without a degree will be considered as well)
    • Previous experience with embedded software testing
    • Proficiency in programming languages, in particular a good knowledge of Python language
    • Good experience with communication standards and protocols (UART, SPI, CAN, Ethernet, etc.)

    • Familiarity with the Unix/Linux operating systems usage and shell scripting.
    • Familiarity with laboratory equipment, such as oscilloscopes, digital multimeters, power supplies, etc.

Cosa offriamo

In addition to the constant research work in the engineering field aimed at developing revolutionary products and services in the aerospace sector, our team is dedicated to implementing innovative approaches in all business aspects, aimed at constantly improving the balance between private life and work, safeguarding the environment and the surrounding society, and paying attention to new technologies.

Our innovative approach to work involves measures aimed at improving the work-life balance of employees. For this reason, since 2022, we have introduced Freeday, a Friday each month when the company closes at 1:00 PM, giving colleagues half a day off to start the weekend early, without affecting their pay. To the same end, we have adopted flexible working hours and maintained – after the Covid emergency – the possibility of working remotely two or more days a week.

Since its foundation, the company has adopted a plastic-free approach attentive to environmental conservation. Our commitment in this regard increases every year, supported also by the advent of technologies that allow us to minimize the production of paper waste. In this respect, a significant project started in 2023 is the digitization of the company’s key processes, which will lead to better data quality and consequently more efficient monitoring of process quality.

Argotec also cares about the well-being of colleagues, both male and female, and takes care of nutrition by offering a catering service managed by Argotec staff, based on careful nutritional balance and environmental sustainability.
