EDGX is a Belgian space tech company transforming the space industry with intelligent, adaptive and efficient spacecraft. We envision a world where satellites respond in real-time to natural disasters and provide lighting-fast global connectivity thanks to onboard artificial intelligence. At EDGX, a bio-inspired approach to data processing is vital for shaping that new generation of satellites. Hence, we pioneer the adoption of neuromorphic technology in our Data Processing Unit (DPU). Yet, what truly makes EDGX a pioneer in the space industry is the team of passionate, like-minded engineers behind it. Many industry partners, such as Imec.istart, ESA, and even the European Commission have continuously backed our team throughout their space journey. However, now we must expand that passionate team to realise our dream of launching a neuromorphic computer into orbit.

We seek a motivated Embedded Hardware Engineer to join our embedded hardware team and help design future iterations of our Digital Processing Unit (DPU).

Core Values

Do the following values resonate with you?

Pioneering Expertise

We are relentlessly driven to establish ourselves as experts in an uncharted domain. Taking on a steep learning curve is not a challenge but an opportunity for growth. As a team, we strive to unlock the potential of neuromorphic computing in space, a learning path nobody has walked before. To achieve that goal, we need to constantly push the boundaries of our own knowledge.

Structured Focus

Our ambitious goal of transforming the space industry with neuromorphic computing requires a collective focus. While the impact of our efforts may be years away, we are united in our fixation to reach it as soon as possible. Whether it's about making long-term strategic decisions or creating structure where there is none, our shared focus guides us towards our vision.

Group Passion

At our core, we are a group of people sharing a passion: space exploration. But we don't stop there. We encourage each individual to explore further and share their passions with the group. Sharing personal interests fuels our growth and our ideas. It makes us more than just a company but a community of passionate individuals.
