Executive Assistant and Electronics/FPGA Engineer Roles

To meet growing demand for our technology and products, and to aid in our continuing growth, we’re seeking to recruit several new employees.

We’re looking for an Executive Assistant to assist our CEO in day-to-day activities and in several areas of importance to the company. These include promoting the company’s products and technologies internationally, supporting the company’s employees, and growing the company’s relationships with suppliers, partners and the local community. This role’s open to people with a range of backgrounds including science, engineering, management, marketing and legal. A scientific/engineering background would be helpful but isn’t essential.

We’re also looking for several engineers with backgrounds in electronic circuit board, FPGA or ASIC design. These engineers will work on chip design and/or unit design, contributing to the development of new products and technology for spacecraft applications. We’re looking for people with at least two years’ industrial experience and with a 1st class degree or equivalent experience.

The successful candidates will be based in our office in Dundee, Scotland, a renovated 19th century town house in the heart of Dundee overlooking the Tay estuary.

As well as being a leading supplier of spacecraft on-board network technology and electronic test equipment, STAR-Dundee is an employee owned company, with over 50% of the company shares owned by an Employee Ownership Trust on behalf of the employees. Staff are represented on this Trust and on the Board of Directors, and also benefit, when there’s a dividend payment to the other shareholders, with a tax-free bonus.

Further details on the vacancies, including detailed job descriptions with information on applying, can be found on our Vacancies page.

STAR-Dundee Is Recruiting!

We are currently looking to expand our team and have several positions open to work on our new products and technology for spacecraft applications. If you have a background in electronic circuit board, FPGA or ASIC design, or software engineering then we would be delighted to hear from you. We do expect you to have a 1st class or 2:1 degree in a relevant subject and are looking for people who are capable of working from their own initiative but who are also capable of working alongside other team members.

The roles are based in our main office in the heart of Dundee, overlooking the Tay estuary and a few minutes’ walk from the city centre. Dundee is a thriving University town in the heart of Scotland (50 miles north of Edinburgh), close (20 miles) to the Highlands and an ideal base for those who enjoy outdoor activities. Dundee was listed by Lonely Planet in 2018 as one of the top ten best European destinations to visit and praised for its ‘head-turning’ urban redevelopment.
