We are looking to further enhance our team by adding a
Atmospheric Motion Vector Product Software Engineer
You will be based initially for 2 years at our client’s headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. Extension of a further 2 years may be possible. In this large European Agency you will find an excellent and modern working environment with challenging tasks and responsibilities.
Your Tasks Include:
The key person will support the team of the Atmospheric and Imaging Applications (AIA) in the group responsible for the scientific AMV product development and implementation.
The tasks of the Key person will typically include:
Algorithm software anomaly investigation and correction;
Design and implementation of algorithm enhancements or improvements;
Software feasibility analyses of proposed new product algorithms, or major algorithm upgrades;
Development of tools in support of product monitoring and product analysis, for example as part of EPS PPF product validation testing;
Preparation of technical documents on product implementation issues;
Preparation of technical notes and reports as required;
Attendance at technical and RSP/AIA team meetings as required;
The focus of these tasks will primarily be on the AMV products extracted from both geostationary and polar orbit systems; however, there may tasks related to other products for which the work of the key person may be partially allocated.
In addition to having a University degree or comparable qualifications in Meteorology, Atmospheric Physics or related subjects, the Key person shall have a minimum of four years’ experience of processing satellite or meteorological data. Specifically the Key person shall have:
Proven experience in the design, implementation, and testing of complex scientific algorithm software;
Proven experience of software development in C, C++ and Fortran in a UNIX environment;
Proven experience in software development using data visualisation and analysis tools (e.g. PYTHON, IDL);
Experience in configuration control of software and data
Sound knowledge and experience in the area of Atmospheric Motion Vectors extraction from satellite imagery, or experience with image processing algorithms in the area of feature identification and tracking, or experience with optical flow methods would be a distinct advantage. Another distinct advantage would be experience in operational data processing.
The Key person shall be able to conduct all activities in an orderly and disciplined manner, shall be able to work calmly and correctly under stress, and must be able to work with the minimum of supervision.
The Key person shall possess good inter-personal skills.
The official languages are English and French. The working language for the position is English and therefore the key person must be able to work effectively and have good writing skills in this language.
