In March, we announced that 2023 would see the publication of over 300 vacancies at ESA. New vacancies keep being published as we continue our search for talented and motivated professionals to join our teams across Europe and support our mission of the peaceful exploration of space for the benefit of everyone. Could ESA be the next step in your career? Read more to find out!

Who we are looking for

Many of the latest vacancies to be published will cover a wide variety of engineering disciplines and will be based at our largest establishment and ESA's technical heart, the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in the Netherlands. If you need to relocate to take up duty at ESA, we support you with a relocation package which includes help finding your accommodation as well as the reimbursement of your removal expenses, plus an installation allowance to assist with the costs associated with settling into your new home.

While many of the roles at ESA largely require specific technical knowledge, not all ESA jobs do. We regularly publish positions for professionals with backgrounds in IT, law and business and administration services. Browse our current vacancies to find the position that fits your professional profile.

Whether you are the right fit for ESA – and vice versa – does not just depend on technical knowledge and previous professional experience, however. Our future colleagues should be motivated to join a large international organisation with ambitious, inspiring goals and a workforce that is diverse in nationality, background and experience. Learn more about who we are looking for.
