This is a great opportunity to become part of the ongoing paradigm shift in the space sector. You will join an exciting and ambitious program revolutionizing how ground segments of space missions are built, operated and commercialized.

To address the growing commercial new space economy, Telespazio Vega is investing and creating a complete new platform for the operations of space missions. We are inventing the next generation of ground software and are looking to hire brilliant minds to shape this exciting project with us!

Several positions available. You will join our highly dynamic NewSpace team, consisting of IT engineers (architects, developers), space specialists and business profiles (product management, sales); leveraging a massive space domain expertise gained over the last 40 years. The best of two worlds.

This position is based at our Head Office in Darmstadt. It is a permanent full time position with an earliest to immediate start date.

We are looking forward to meeting you! 


We are looking for innovators, who come with no preconceptions but instead with disruptive ideas; either from outside the space industry; or within the space industry and eager to change it!

  • Outside of the space industry: you have strong expertise in Cloud Engineering (AWS) and want to shape a new initiative from the beginning. You dream of becoming a ‘digital transformation guru’ in a sector that really needs it. Join us in the space industry; there is a lot of cool stuff to do – and yes, your software will fly spacecraft’s!
  • Already in the space industry: you have worked with the “traditional” ground systems, discovered the conservative mentalities, and… felt a big frustration! Fear not! Join our new start-up section and build with us this new end-to-end product from scratch, using only the most modern technologies: cloud-native apps hosted on containers, leveraging AWS services and non-space software, high-end DevOps with Kubernetes... Finally, you will be free to do real innovation! Study of Project specific Characteristics.
