Careers at Viridian Space Corporation

We are an early-stage space technology startup located in El Segundo (Los Angeles), California. Our mission is to unlock commercial and military access to Very Low Earth Orbits (VLEO), far below where traditional satellites fly. 
We are looking for energetic, passionate, talented professionals and interns to join our top-class team!

Open Roles

Test Engineer

As a Test Engineer you will be responsible for leading test campaigns to develop our novel satellite propulsion system prototypes. You will also participate in the design and test of the propulsion system flight units. As the technology matures, you will expand the scope of testing to other satellite components. Our test campaigns will involve operating vacuum equipment, such as a vacuum chamber and its pumping system, a plasma ion source, and a variety of specialized laboratory diagnostic equipment, such as oscilloscopes, high voltage and RF power supplies, and DAQs. You will interact with all members of our small but growing team and our advisors.

In your first 30 days you will get familiar with our unique propulsion system, our laboratory equipment and start participating in daily test cadence. In your first 60 days you will start leading various test campaigns. After 90 days you will begin expanding and improving our testing capabilities and will spearhead our laboratory hardware testing.
