Who are they?
Loft Orbital is a provider of space “Missions as-a-Service”.
Founded in 2017 at the heart of the Silicon Valley, Loft Orbital integrates, launches, and operates high-reliability and high-performance spacecraft. Loft Orbital’s approach is centered on enabling standardization to deliver reliable space missions with improved cost and schedule performance.
Loft Orbital’s spacecraft are typically configured as “rideshares”, meaning that multiple customers share the onboard resources of a 100-kg class microsatellite platform.
Loft Orbital is developing the interface technologies, which are both software and hardware, and is thus the first company in the space sector that marry tech and space domains. The French subsidiary, based in Toulouse, focuses on the R&D activities for the development of these technologies.
At Loft Orbital, we just successfully launched our first 2 satellites that we fly and operate ourselves. With a number of smallsats scheduled to launch in the near future, we are actively looking for a Firmware (FPGA) Engineer! 🛰️
About Loft Orbital
Loft Orbital provides the fastest and simplest path to orbit for organizations that require information from space. We operate satellites, fly customer payloads onboard, and handle the entire mission from initial concept through in-orbit operations. This service is powered by our hardware and software products that enable any payload to fly on a standard satellite, reducing the lead-time and risk of a traditional space mission. Our standard interfacing and mission operations products enable us to fly any kind of payload, such as imagers, RF systems, scientific experiments, national security missions, in-orbit demonstrations, and weather and climate sensors. Our customers trust us to manage their space infrastructure, so they can focus on what matters most to them: their payload and their data.
At Loft, you'll be given the autonomy and ownership to solve significant challenges, but with a close-knit and supportive team at your back. We believe that diversity and community are the foundation of an open culture. We are committed to hiring the best people regardless of background and making their time at Loft the most fulfilling period of their career. With a wave of exciting customer traction, we are scaling up our team quickly across our software, hardware, and aerospace teams at all three of our offices in San Francisco, CA; Golden, CO; and Toulouse, France.
Wanna Join the Adventure?
We are looking for an experienced and motivated Senior RF Engineer with antenna and RF frontend engineering experience to join our team in San Francisco. Our development pushes the boundaries of in-space compute capabilities, RF communications, software defined payloads, and many other applications. You will join a team of experts in bringing these ideas to reality and launching your work into orbit.
