A thriving economy in space is needed to make life on earth more vibrant, sustainable, and equitable. STOKE was founded to build the systems that enable that outcome through a seamlessly connected earth and space.


Reusable launch systems are the key to seamlessly connecting Earth and space. An instrumental ingredient to making reusable launch vehicles is the ability to test hardware quickly. As an Electronic Test Engineer, you will be responsible for collaborating with engineers to design test plans, develop associated test hardware and software, execute tests, troubleshoot test related issues, and document your findings. You will work directly with experienced electrical engineers and the hardware they develop to find critical flaws in designs and help fix them. You must be ready to stay focused, move fast, self-direct, and learn on the fly.
