Meet our people
What motivates me in my job is leading a highly qualified team, designing high quality, innovative solutions as well as interacting with customers and subcontractors from all around the world, all driven by the same objective of a successful mission.
Working in space projects adds an extra challenge to the job. Space is more stringent than any of the most harsh environments on Earth. During the design of the system, care needs to be taken to present the best solution in term of feasibility and functionality. As engineers, we have to think outside the box and always be a step ahead; you want to find a solution before an issue is raised.

The daily-life at Antwerp Space is truly great. We are in constant interactions between the various projects, either in an organized way or simply during a coffee break. In a single day, you would be speaking about Jupiter, Mars, and the ISS. Once a month, a lunch-time talk is organised to dive deep in a particular activity of the company. Plus, there are also non-space related perks. Almost every day we get a fresh fruit delivery, and once in a while someone would bring cake to celebrate their birthday. Every Tuesday, we have a yoga class on site - perfect occasion to relax a little. And don't worry if you don't speak Dutch: classes are organised every now and then!

I am working at Antwerp Space since April 2017. As a technical lead I am responsible for all technical aspects of a project. It is amazing how many engineering disciplines are involved when you do space flight projects, this makes our projects both challenging and interesting to work on. Currently I am working on an in-orbit communication system as well as on ground support equipment, used to test satellites before they are launched. I enjoy the international environment we are working in as well, at the same time we are a relatively small company where everyone is always eager to help one another. Antwerp Space also offers a flexible working environment with a few nice perks, like free yoga classes and fresh fruit. Did I mention our cosy garden where we have lunch when the Belgian weather allows for it?
