Spacecraft represent the most pressing unmet need across the entire aerospace industry. As launch costs decrease, more and more companies and governments are launching increasingly large numbers of smaller satellites. For the first time in history, this increase in demand is driving a massive need for spacecraft platforms, known as satellite buses. Satellite buses carry customers’ payloads and are delivered to space on launch vehicles.
 
Apex manufactures satellite buses at scale using a combination of disruptive software, vertical integration, and hardware that is designed for manufacturing. Our satellite buses are truly productized to enable a wide set of missions, ranging from earth observation to communications and more, that advance our future as a society.

 We are seeking talented engineers to work closely with the broader engineering team for an exciting internship opportunity. This person is passionate about engineering, ready to take ownership over complex challenges, and a strong desire to learn about all things satellites. You will have an opportunity to approach this from a fresh perspective targeting an end result indexed on reliability and efficiency. This will require innovation and creativity to ultimately disrupt and make an impact on the industry.  
We are looking for candidates in three general areas: 

Mechanical Engineering: Interns will work on designing and optimizing satellite structures and work on developing enclosures for various components. Experience with CAD software and a strong foundation in dynamics and materials engineering is preferred. 

Software Engineering: Interns will contribute to developing and improving the software that controls our satellites, including embedded systems, simulations, and user interfaces. Proficiency in programming languages such as Python, C++ is ideal. 

Electrical Engineering: Interns will assist in the design, simulation, and testing of electronic systems for our satellites. This includes working with PCB design, harness design, circuit analysis, and power systems.
