Kepler Communications

Hardware Engineer Intern

Internships – Toronto, Ontario
Department Internships
Employment Type Intern

Kepler is changing the face of satellite communications by launching a constellation of telecommunication nanosatellites! With the recent success of our Series A funding, a handful of early customers, and our first satellite in orbit, Kepler is currently doubling in size!

We invest heavily in making sure we have the best communications technology and people in the world. So we're on the hunt for talented interns that can help us continue our growth.

At Kepler, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a small dedicated team of engineers building our spacecraft. You will support the design, build, and test of many electronics that will go directly on our satellites.

Day to day you will interface with hardware, and software engineers on your team to design schematics and perform layouts. Though this is an internship position we expect you to be directly contributing to the core tasks for the system. We won't bring you on-board unless we think you can be treated like any other team member. Here is a little more detail on the things we expect you to do:

I. Support iterations on our communications subsystem and other spacecraft related electronics

Iterate on the schematics and layout of various circuit boards within the Kepler spacecraft

Add new features to different circuit board designs

Manufacture boards and support both functional / performance testing

Develop software to support functional testing

II. Integration of subsystems on-board the Kepler spacecraft

Integrate various circuit boards on the Kepler spacecraft and perform integration testing

Develop integration software for various subsystems


Position Requirements:

  • Significant involvement in electronics/PCB design outside of class projects
  • Able to do at least one of the following:
  • Solder a 0402 resistor
  • Design a 4 layer board in a CAD package (KiCad, Eagle, Altium, Allegro etc.)
  • Built a few prototypes of something hardware related 
  • A proven track record of learning how to design or analyze something outside of the classroom 

Bonus Points:

  • Built some of your own circuits for personal projects
  • Experience in a University design team (e.g. CSDC, IREC, SAE)
  • Knowledge of CubeSats
