Did you know that Kongsberg Satellite Services (KSAT), one of the world's leading companies within the space industry, have our headquarters in beautiful Tromsø, Norway? 

Every single day we go to work with one goal in mind: Creating the best communication possible between earth and space. Our antennas are located all over the globe – giving our customers a whole universe of possibilities: They can explore Mars, monitor the rainforest and improve their general understanding of space and Earth.

And the best thing? We now want to invite you to become part of this adventure!

Regardless of which of the three titles appeals to you the most, you will play a crucial role in developing the space industry. How cool is that? Now, let's take a closer look on the roles:

System engineer
As a system engineer, we hope you can contribute to the technical design, integration and maintenance of systems for satellite communication throughout their lifecycle. This includes improving systems for automation and control, supporting satellite launches and configuring baseband equipment. You will be a part of a highly competent team responsible for a broad range of technical disciplines with a strong operational focus.

Project engineer
Are you more into designing the optimal ground station solutions for a large variety of customers? Then the project engineer role is for you! You will become a member of a team of experts from different disciplines – working together to help both small start-ups and large agencies. You will get to follow a satellite project from the sales phase through implementation and testing up to the critical launch and early orbit phase.

Technical project manager
What about the opportunity of playing a key part in deploying the next generation ground station architecture over KSAT’s global network? That’s the technical project manager role for you! You will lead internal innovation projects and coordinate the activities across the organization.

Do you find one of these opportunities exciting? Hopefully we can make it even more interesting by offering you:

  • An environment you are guaranteed to learn from – regardless of your level of expertise today. We will make sure you develop, both personally and technically!
  • The opportunity to make as many suggestions for improvements as you like. Really – feel free to take as much space as you want. Improvement and optimization are the best things out there.
  • Good health insurance and pension, training and courses, company cabins, flextime, sports and more.

As we are growing together with the industry, so does our need for skilled people. Therefore, we hope you can use your education within engineering, technology or similar fields to help us. As you will work with people who speak another language than yourself, we will also highly appreciate your ability to communicate in both English and Norwegian.

Take a look at the following disciplines: 

  • System engineering
  • Automation and control
  • Project management
  • Product development
  • RF communication
  • Scripting and programming
  • Signal processing
  • Data analytics
  • Network-based solutions

Do you have knowledge within one or more? Well, then you are already a star in our eyes. Let’s explore space together. We can’t wait to hear from you!
