Final year university students looking for a career that’s literally out of this world are invited to apply to graduate program offered by Myriota, one of the space industry businesses at the Lot Fourteen innovation neighbourhood.
Lot Fourteen is being created on the site of the former Royal Adelaide Hospital to drive investment, innovation and jobs in deep technology industries.
Space and defence is one of four focus sectors in the neighbourhood and in addition to Myriota, Lot Fourteen has attracted the headquarters of the new Australian Space Agency plus the associated Mission Control and Space Discovery centre, the new SmartSat CRC, nanosatellite maker Inovor Technologies and rocket propulsion researcher Neumann Space, along with the Defence and Space Landing Pad, which supports international businesses to enter the South Australian market.
Myriota has full-time graduate trainee positions available across a range of areas, from electronics, software, aerospace and engineering to finance, marketing and business. All will start on February 3, 2020.
Myriota Chief Executive Dr Alex Grant said Myriota was growing fast and expected to more than double in size to over 50 staff by the end of 2020.
“Careers in the space sector are wide ranging and full of exciting opportunities,” he said. “There are many career options in the creative and business fields in addition to STEM roles, and we're looking for passionate and energetic team players who want to make a positive impact.”
“Our philosophy is ‘Think Big’ - it’s the attitude that shapes our bold vision and hunger for innovation. It’s the way we see the world and what drives us to redefine space-based communications. We’re looking for diverse and talented team members who share this vision.”
Myriota was founded to revolutionise the Internet of Things (IoT) by offering disruptively low-cost and long-battery-life global satellite connectivity.
Dr Grant said the company was born from a genuine desire to connect remote areas that were previously left behind when it came to technological advancements.
He said Myriota’s world-first patented technology was making data accessible across a range of industries including agriculture, environmental monitoring, transport and logistics, maritime, and defence.
The Myriota Graduate Program includes formal and informal learning opportunities, rotations through different areas of Myriota’s business, regular feedback from the team, meaningful work that contributes to better outcomes for customers, and collaboration with different team members
