Destinus is an aerospace technology company founded under the belief that in the future distance shouldn’t matter at all. They are therefore building the near-space vehicle and the associated infrastructure. Moving at the border of Space, their hydrogen-powered vehicles are ten times faster than conventional aircraft, providing the just-in-time backbone for logistics, e-commerce, and supply chain companies who can’t wait. Destinus defines a new class of fast: Their mission is to bring instantly your stuff at the other part of the world – and they mean it literally.

They have an exciting opportunity for an Electronic Design Engineer to join their embedded firmware/software team. In this role, you will be responsible for designing, manufacturing, and testing custom PCBs. These PCBs, equipped with microcontrollers (such as STM32), SOCs (like Zynq), power supplies, and analog blocks, are essential for orchestrating the complex sequencing of sensors, valves, and actuators. This orchestration is crucial for controlling the propulsion and cryogenic fuel storage systems of aircraft.
