    Altimetry Instrument Systems Engineer Job Description

    We are currently looking for an experienced Altimetry Instrument Systems Engineer to join our international team of inspiring engineers and industry professionals, tasked with driving innovation within the Space, Satellite and Earth Observation sector.

    This role is rooted in EUMETSAT’s commitment to the European Union's Copernicus Earth observation programme and will provide the opportunity to work with leading IT, Space and Earth Observation organisations and domain experts to make a positive impact on society!


    In the context of Copernicus and through its Jason-CS programme, the EUMETSAT Copernicus Mission Development Division is involved in the development of ocean altimetry missions, focusing on system and data processing. EUMETSAT is also the operator of the Copernicus Jason-3, Sentinel-3 and Jason-CS/Sentinel-6 marine missions, based on a partnership with ESA and other European and US partners.

    In partnership with ESA, EUMETSAT is now planning for the next generation multi-orbit ocean altimeter system and mission expected to take over Sentinel-3 and Sentinel-6 in the 2030 timeframe, and assessing the possible use of the CRISTAL mission for acquiring additional altimeter data over the open ocean.

    Reporting to the EUMETSAT phase A/B manager for future Copernicus missions and to the System Manager for future Copernicus Sentinel altimetry missions in the development phase, the Altimetry Instrument System Engineer will follow up the ESA-led definition of requirements, design and development of altimeter instrument suites (altimeter, microwave radiometer, orbit determination system). He/she will assess critical information for the development of data processing and satellite operations by EUMETSAT and support its appropriation by multi-disciplinary teams.


    ·         Support the evaluation of new concepts for altimeter instrument suites by ESA, including the assessment of impacts of technology evolutions on the definition of future altimeter missions;
    ·         Attend as an observer and support, as requested, the relevant Mission Advisory Group meetings;
    ·         Support and follow-up the ESA-led design and development of altimeter instrument suites, and the assessment of impacts at mission and system levels, including the assessment of:
    - Instrument performance and operability requirements;
    - Instrument compliance with mission and system-level requirements;
    - Results of on-ground calibration, testing and qualification;
    - Impacts of instrument non-conformances at system and data processing levels;
    - Instrument-relevant results of System Validation Tests.
    ·         Participate in major system, satellite, and instruments reviews as appropriate;
    ·         Facilitate the appropriation of critical instrument information for data processing within the multi-disciplinary EUMETSAT functional instrument chain team and operations preparation teams;
    ·         Assess the specification and relevance to EUMETSAT of instrument-related tools developed by ESA for the purpose of in-orbit verification and commissioning of instrument and output products;
    ·         Support the development of additional tools needed by EUMETSAT for calibration, commissioning and validation of operational Level 1 and Level 2 products;
    ·         Support commissioning of instruments and end-to-end operability and performance validation, in close coordination with altimeter scientists and data processing experts;
    ·         Participate in Anomaly Review Boards for instrument anomalies possibly affecting system performance or operations;   
    ·         Provide feedback, lessons learnt and experience from instrument in-orbit verification and commissioning to subsequent instruments / satellites.

    What we offer

    ·         Excellent salary, of up to Euro 6,500 NET (after tax) based on skills and experience;
    ·         Flexible working time including additional flexi-leave;
