You will report to the Head of the Electric Propulsion department in the Telecom Satellites Business Unit in Toulouse.

The Electric Propulsion group in Toulouse is in charge of the complete electric propulsion sub-system on current and future satellite and constellation projects. One key element of the sub-system is the thruster module assembly, defined as the mechanical and thermal support for at least the electric thruster and potentially the complete sub-system, depending on the project.
