Absolut Sensing is developing the technologies necessary to monitor, understand and ultimately predict global changes. Our first mission is to combat climate change by providing a satellite-based methane monitoring service to allow regulators and emitters worldwide to assess and reduce their emissions.

Join us and be part of the solution !

Absolut Sensing is a rapidly growing company with ambitions beyond this first mission. You can therefore expect opportunities for career evolution. We are an equal opportunity employer, offering competitive salaries, healthcare and other benefits.


As Satellite Thermo Mechanical Architect, you will own thermo-mechanical requirements definition and will interact regularly with senior leadership during critical design phases, ensuring that requirements are properly flown-down into specifications, analysis, simulations, and test activities. You will also play an integral role in monitoring partners and suppliers’ technical deliveries and ensure on-time on-quality delivery of key activities.

  • Define/own/manage the overall thermo-mechanical requirements definition.
  • Define/Manage thermo-mechanical interfaces between the satellite platform and payload.
  • Develop design criteria and drive system-level optimization to ensure mission goals are met.
  • Rapidly iterate on designs and analysis with partners and suppliers to inform high level systems trades and steer overall satellite-payload direction.
  • Oversee environmental and performance testing on hardware to validate analysis and demonstrate compliance to design criteria.
  • Own product delivery timeline through conception, design, assembly, and launch.
  • Demonstrate ownership of thermo-mechanical outcomes at every stage of development and production.
  • Masters level degree (BAC+5), in mechanical engineering or related.
  • 5+ years of experience with mechanical/electromechanical design, analysis, testing, and/or manufacturing.
  • Hands-on project experience with complex mechanical systems as a team lead.
  • Strong experience in thermal design and analysis.
  • Proficient in 3D CAD.
  • Solid understanding and application of GD&T.
  • Demonstrated understanding of structural analysis and failure modes of complex mechanical systems.
  • Self-motivated with strong organizational, written, and oral communication skills.
  • Knowledge of and experience in selecting materials, manufacturing methods, and surface treatments for mechanical components.
  • Experience working with PCB designers and exposure to PCB layout and PCBA mechanical design.
  • Good written and oral communication skills.
  • Ability to work effectively in a dynamic environment with changing needs and requirements.
  • The working language of the company is French, however a working proficiency in English is an advantage for interfacing with suppliers and partners from other countries.
