Princeton Satellite Systems has several job openings. Please send us your resumé or CV if you are interested in any position. We read all resumés!

Power Electronics Engineer

This position is for a power electronics engineer to work on power electronics for an ARPA-E GAMOW project. The specific application is high power transistor switches driving inductive loads. These circuits will be used for nuclear fusion plasma control systems including plasma positioning, shape and Edge Localized Mode control. The job will also include designing high power pulse circuits for fusion reactors that use compression for heating, such as Z-Pinch machines. Experience with design, implementation, simulation and hardware testing are required. Experience with circuit board supply chains is also required. Familiarity with wide-bandgap transistors such as SiC, GaN and GaN on SiC is highly desired.

The candidate will support other switching power electronics projects including DC/DC converters and motor drives.

The candidate will assist in the writing of technical papers and proposals.

A bachelors degree is required. A masters degree or Ph.D is required except in cases where the candidate has extensive industrial power electronics experience.

Software Engineer

This position will involve writing flight software for spacecraft and aircraft. The work will involve programming in C/C++/Objective-C and other high level languages for real-time system. The engineer will write interfaces to hardware such as reaction wheels and star cameras. Work will be on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows OS.

Other desirable skills

  • Spacecraft telemetry and command systems
  • Machine/Deep Learning
  • OpenGL
  • Numerical Algorithms
  • Simulations

Interns 2023

Interns will work on nuclear fusion, spacecraft, and aircraft systems. Tasks may include writing software in MATLAB or C/C++ and doing CAD work in Fusion 360. Interns will write reports and contribute to technical papers. Most interns work on 2-3 projects over the summer. Interns will interact with engineers and scientists at Princeton Satellite Systems on a daily basis and also with customers. No particular field of study is required. We hire rising sophomores through graduate students.

An intern from the summer of 2021 presented her work at the International Astronautical Congress meeting in Paris, France this fall! Her work was on a Titan aircraft powered by a fusion reactor.

We are accepting intern applications through 3/31/2023. Positions may be filled earlier, so you should send your resumé and cover letter as soon as you can.
