Lasse Christensen, Business Controller
I joined GomSpace in Aalborg back in July 2021, after looking for a challenging job with room for ambition and self-development. I was met by a large number of passionate and dedicated colleagues. My role at GomSpace stretches beyond the average Business Controller, as my everyday is filled with a variety of different assignments. One day I might be analyzing the development of an upcoming power system, and the next day discussing high level strategy for the company’s future success or developing Business Intelligence solutions. It’ a place where your personal skills are improving and being expanded day by day.

What I enjoy the most about working at GomSpace is first of all working with and learning from such skillful people coming from a variety of backgrounds. Furthermore I have a great personal impact on how I want to develop my role in the company, as we are rapidly growing on an international level, providing the experience and responsibility most young academics are thirsting for. GomSpace is a unique opportunity to experience working in a publicly traded growth company on its way to becoming the European nano- and microsatellite champion. And let’s be honest – Space is just pretty cool!

Virginia Hanessian, Senior Project Manager
I've started working at GomSpace in 2016 as a Systems Engineer. I have been in the space sector for 8 years now, and today my position is Senior Project Manager. For me, it is very impressive how GomSpace has managed to get a place among the big players of the sector worldwide. It began as a start-up for academic purposes and small missions, and in a short period of time, it has been migrating to more complex missions, causing big investors to look at GomSpace as a reliable company, in which they trust challenging bigger projects or even constellations. I am very proud to be part of this thriving business that allow me to develop my professional skills. Even though I had to leave my home country, Mexico,

I came to Denmark to contribute and learn at GomSpace, and it was well worth it. What makes me want to stay is the good management, planning and the work environment. People are always willing to help and are always concerned for the happiness of the co-workers. There are several social activities through the year, including family members, which is always a priority. With flexible times, the job becomes less stressful and the employees yield effective results. There are currently several projects running with different missions as well as a constant investment to secure new high quality products.

Kelly Antonini, Systems Engineer
I have been at GomSpace since May 2017, when I started as a Systems Engineer.

In that role, I follow a spacecraft project from the bid phase to post-launch. Being a project's technical lead, I work alongside the Project Manager, and depending on the specific project phase, my day-to-day activities are extremely varied. I might be consolidating requirements; coordinating R&D engineers; designing the spacecraft in CAD; building and maintaining system budgets; documenting; building the spacecraft in the clean room during the AIV phase; or coordinating the spacecraft operations.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Earth Oriented Space Science and Technology (ESPACE) from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and moved to Denmark specifically for this position. My role at GomSpace is providing me with invaluable insight into the CubeSat industry and no day on the job has ever been the same, with a new exciting activity waiting right around the corner. I am proud to be working for GomSpace, as to me, it represents high standards and quality, exciting projects, an excellent work environment, and a good work-life balance.

If you are looking for a new career challenge in the space business, I am confident that GomSpace will deliver.

David Ju, AOCS Engineer
My journey as an AOCS engineer at Gomspace started back in September 2018 as my first job after graduation. My decision to move to Denmark from the Netherlands was mainly motivated by looking for a challenge in a different country. During my interview at Gomspace, I received a tour around the building and was astonished by the many impressive tools and equipment for building and testing CubeSats leading me to accept my position.

During the last 4 years there has been many exciting challenges, and I have gained more and more knowledge in the world of CubeSats; ranging from testing sensors and actuators, operating on satellites in orbit, to developing AOCS algorithms and verifying this in space. The many complex projects in the form of Earth observation to deep space missions here at Gomspace are a continuous stream of aspiration to my career as an AOCS engineer.

Paul Ledoux, Project Manager
I joined GomSpace in Denmark after having lived in the United Kingdom and in France, bringing with me suitcases, experience working in automotive industry for brands such as Aston Martin and an MBA from the University of Oxford. The balance between flexibility of a small startup enterprise and the importance of a structured corporation are one of the things that make GomSpace such a fun place to be.

Working on a spacecraft is just awesome. Especially when working on new technologies and partnerships with big players such as the European Space Agency.
On top of that, other than the higher latitude making Denmark a cool place, it is actually a very enjoyable location and I am learning a lot from their culture. One word captures it all is ‘’Hygge’’: A Danish word for ‘enjoying the good things in life’.
