Mechanical Simulations and Test Engineer

SpeQtral is looking for a highly motivated test engineer to join a team of space quantum pioneers at the office in Singapore. We are commercialising quantum communications to prepare the world for the quantum future. Think space lasers, entanglement and military level secure communications. As part of our mission to transform the world’s networks we plan to launch a constellation of satellites to enable world-wide entanglement distribution. The earliest application of this is highly secure delivery of encryption keys to facilitate secret communications.

At SpeQtral, you would work directly together with teams of scientists and engineers to overcome the technical challenges of quantum communication in the real world.


  • Master’s degree in mechanical or aerospace engineering or similar, alternatively: Bachelor’s degree or similar with at least 2 years of working experience
  • Strong academic achievements and/or demonstrated passion for technology through industry or extra-curricular activities
  • Curiosity about working on the forefront of deep tech development

Technical skills – must have

  • Thermal and mechanical modelling: you have experience performing simulations using tools such as ANSYS and Thermica
  • Test Engineering: You have a demonstrated familiarity with environmental test tools and processes such as thermal vacuum & vibration tests, verification & validation plans, and simulation software.
  • Test planning: you are able to translate technical requirements and industry standards into test plans, liaise with external facilities and internal technical teams and get your hands dirty setting up tests. By communicating effectively you ensure the technical solutions survivhe in the required environments.
  • Competent with CAD for designing and outsourcing manufacture of test jigs and assisting mechanical engineers with ongoing mechanical engineering activities.
  • Analysis: you can correlate simulations and test results and troubleshoot discrepancies
  • Documentation and presentations: You have strong written and spoken communication skills. Writing comprehensive documentation for tests and processes .

Bonus technical skills – experience in any of the following topics is advantageous 

  • Mechanical design, e.g. SolidWorks
  • Optics modelling, e.g. Zemax
  • Radiation modelling and testing
  • Spacecraft and scientific instrumentation
