    Job Description

    Come and support the operations preparation of two Jason-CS/Sentinel-6 satellites, the first to be launched at the end of 2020

    This is a great opportunity to become involved in our Jason-CS Programme.  You will have the opportunity to define and develop our operational spacecraft systems for our next generation of satellites that measure the way our oceans contribute to our weather and help us to understand climate change.

    The Role

    You must be an experienced engineer with knowledge of in-flight operations gained with Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite systems. You should have some experience of Attitude and Orbit Control Systems (AOCS) and Data Handling Operations on modern LEO satellite platforms.  You will support EUMETSAT with our launch preparation activities as well as all activities through the Launch and Early Orbit, and In-orbit Commissioning Phases. The first satellite is due to be launched at the end of 2020.  Managing interfaces with our partners, you will ensure that routine operations run to schedule and all anomalies are investigated and resolved.  As part of the ‘on-call’ operations engineering and management team, you will be tasked to respond to any operational issues as they arise. You will also contribute to the strategic planning and review of our programme, contributing to the definition and development of flight operations systems for future altimeter missions.

    You need to synthesise complex issues and be able to express ideas and issues clearly, with experience of interfacing with international partners.  Your focus will be on achieving successful outcomes, using your initiative and your ability to work with minimum supervision.  Training other operational team members in a matrix organisation will also be a key part in this challenging role.

    What we offer

    EUMETSAT provides a collaborative, international environment with opportunities to establish a long career perspective. We offer a competitive salary and outstanding benefits. We offer the chance to work on exciting satellite programmes. You will play a leading role in the planning of the operations of our future satellite programme; making a difference to our missions and partners, often working with people who are experts in their field.

    Does this sound like you?

    Have a look at our website to find out how you can make a world of difference. We value diversity and seek to recruit nationals from our Member States. The closing date is 7th January.
