EUMETSAT is Europe’s meteorological satellite agency. Its role is to establish and operate meteorological satellites to monitor the weather and climate from space - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This information is supplied to the National Meteorological Services of the organisation's Member and Cooperating States in Europe, as well as other users worldwide.
EUMETSAT also operates several Copernicus missions on behalf of the European Union and provide data services to the Copernicus marine and atmospheric services and their users.
As an intergovernmental European Organisation, EUMETSAT has 30 Member States (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.)
EUMETSAT is now inviting well qualified candidates from its Member States to apply for the following post:
We are developing the second generation of operational polar weather satellites and instruments for earth observations, that will constitute the new reference for numerical weather prediction and climate monitoring for at least the next 20-30 years.
We are looking for an Engineer to provide technical management support for space borne instrument development activities covering from phase C up to launch and commissioning.
These instruments are developed in cooperation with our partners ESA, CNES and DLR and will constitute the heart of a much wider global system, called the EUMETSAT Polar System Second Generation (EPS-SG).
The first satellite is due for launch in 2022 followed by five further launches, spaced in time to ensure continuity for more than 20 years.
This is the opportunity to be part of one of the most important space projects in Europe for weather and climate forecasting.
At EUMETSAT we procure, operate and control a fleet of satellites and payloads that support our mission. We therefore have multi-disciplinary and multicultural teams of engineers, scientists and managers dedicated to ensure EUMETSAT core business: prepare for the next generation of meteorological satellite, control and ensure 24/7 operability of our existing fleet of satellites, process, monitor the quality of remote sensed data, deliver and interpret these data to our users. This information is used to forecast weather, sea surface temperatures and air quality. Our use of technology is vital to everyday life.
What we offer
We work in a collaborative, international environment which offers you a competitive salary and outstanding benefits. You will work with people who are experts in their fields and get the opportunity to work on cutting- edge projects. We value diversity and seek to recruit nationals from our Member States. You must be able to work effectively in English and have some knowledge of French.
Does this sound like you?
Have a look at our website to find out how you can make a world of difference. The closing date is 3rd September. Interviews w/c 8th October.
With significant experience in space, ideally in remote sensing instruments, you will bring your technical and project management skills to help us in supervising the development of instruments in collaboration with our partner’s agencies.
You will monitor and assess the performance of each instrument, ensuring that we are within our budget and schedule. You will follow the instrument from development, assembly, integration and testing through commissioning. Working with partners and suppliers, you will assess any issues that arise and use your expertise to contribute to the development of instruments for future missions.
You need excellent communication and presentation skills, with the ability to manage multiple internal and external interfaces. We are a fast paced, operational organisation, working closely with users and partners from industry and space agencies. You will work with instrument experts and scientists to develop the technology and potential of remote sensing instruments. Using you ability to analyse complex information, you need to be able to provide clear and structured information for decision makers involved in this project.
