Exotrail is looking for a Software intern to join our development team for 6 months. The start date would ideally be from early January to mid-February 2023.
Our core competencies lie in the development of algorithms to control low-thrust propulsion on small satellites and to integrate a full flight dynamics system within an easy-to-use, modular interface.
spacestudio™ is also the basis for the project ExoOPS-Défense™ focused on the delivery of simulation and mission analysis software for the French Space Command (CDE). It depicts an extension of the software on SSA (Space Situational Awareness) subjects such as complex satellite maneuvers characterisation.
Your job will be to contribute to the development of spacestudio™, either on the design features or on the operational aspects. Depending on your skills, you may work on the following technical subjects:
- Frontend development
- Code architecture
- Data management
- Machine learning and data science
You will work on several tasks including:
📌 Create user interfaces and implement 3D visualizations
📌 Integrate new space mechanics features in the workflow
📌 Integrate the technical bricks in a user-oriented approach
📌 Improve the user experience by working on data workflow
📌 Consolidate the architecture to improve the modularity
You will be joining a dynamic and motivated team based in the city centre of Toulouse. The development team operates following the Agile method, allowing to progress at a fast pace with a customer-oriented approach. We accord great importance to freedom, autonomy, and responsibility. You will benefit from the support of all the team in space dynamics and software development, our two areas of expertise in Toulouse. We also promote the culture of software craftmanship and rely on the principles of clean code.
