ESA - European Space Agency

We are the European Space Agency.

Our mission is the peaceful exploration and use of space for the benefit of everyone. We watch over Earth, develop and launch inspiring and unique space projects, train astronauts and push the boundaries of science and technology, seeking answers to the big questions about the Universe. We are a family of scientists, engineers and business professionals from all over Europe working together in a diverse and multinational environment.

At ESA, we are always on the lookout for experts from engineering, science, IT, natural/social science, business and administration services (law, finance, communications, human resources, facility management) to join our teams and work on inspiring missions at the heart of European space activities! ESA offers attractive employment conditions and promotes a multicultural, supportive, inclusive and family-friendly working environment.

Since its creation in 1975, ESA has been a place of integration for Europe and its people, and has been strengthened by the wealth and diversity of the cultures they represent. Bringing together differing perspectives is one of our greatest assets and a key factor driving our achievements. For this purpose, we welcome applications from all qualified candidates irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, beliefs, age or disability.
