    Your Profile:

    In addition to having a University degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline such as computer science, physics, mathematics or remote sensing, the Consultant shall have a minimum of three years’ experience in software engineering for operational processing of satellite or meteorological data.

    Knowledge and experience of the following is mandatory:

    • Specification, development, and testing of product processors for earth observation platforms, with knowledge of the following domain-specific aspects being highly desirable:
      • Ground processing algorithms for hyperspectral sounding instruments, covering geo-location, radiometric and spectral calibration at level 1 as well as methodologies and techniques for atmospheric retrievals at Level 2.
      • Ground processing algorithms for lightning instruments, covering detection, false event filtering, geo-location and analysis of temporal and spatial statistics;
      • Operational software for high-throughput, low-latency processing of satellite data, preferably for hyperspectral sounding instruments;
    • System and software engineering for operational earth observation ground processing;
    • Formal software testing, verification and validation of product processors (L1 or L2) for satellite data or other meteorological data;
    • Development and testing of software in UNIX environments.

    Practical knowledge and demonstrated ability covering as many as possible of the following will be an advantage:

    • Image Navigation and Registration for geostationary imaging satellites;
    • Processes, phases and documentation related to procurement of operational data processing systems in the field of Earth Observations including ECSS standards;
    • The ability to perform under high workloads;
    • Very good communication, presentation and listening skills—including the ability to rapidly absorb, and make use of, information presented in written and oral communications in a dynamic context.
