Procurement Manager

Who we are?

We are a space company and we try to stretch the boundaries. We are located in the Czech Republic in Brno. A few meters away are our own ISO 8 clean room.

What do we do?

We develop! We start with a sheet of plain and we try to develop the best solution for the European Space Agency (ESA). Our main domain is mechanical systems. We also have our own procurement and quality control. We have the components we develop manufactured by proven partners and then we assemble and test them in our laboratories. A complete product leaves us.

What are we working on?

We supply the upper part of the VEGA rocket. We are responsible for the development and delivery of one of the modules for PLATO satellite, which will operate at L2 to discover Exoplanets. We have also joined the Exomars 2020 mission.

But there is much more and we need help, so we are looking for another colleague.
