    Job Description

    Help us prepare the operations build-up of the planned Sentinel-6 high precision altimetry mission and co-ordinate routine operations for the data processing and product extraction systems for other Copernicus Missions.

    EUMETSAT is the European operational satellite agency for monitoring weather, climate and the environment. We are leading the system definition, ground segment development, operations preparations and operations for the Sentinel-6 mission, part of the high-profile Copernicus Programme.  

    We are looking for an experienced Data Processing Operations Engineer to co-ordinate the operations build up for the Copernicus Sentinel-6/Jason-CS mission due for launch in 2020. This is a unique opportunity to establish guides, documents and procedures for the data processing systems for both the primary altimetry and the secondary radio-occultation missions. You will support the Payload Data Processing (PDP) development activities, contributing to verification and operational validation procedures.  As part of the role, you will define and implement procedures and tools for the quality monitoring of products, co-ordinating routine operations for the data processing and product extraction systems delivering Level 0 to Level 2 products for all Copernicus missions exploited by EUMETSAT.  Using your expertise, you will contribute to the definition and product processing concepts for future missions, supporting training activities relevant to Copernicus data processing.

    Your work at EUMETSAT

    This is a 24/7 operational environment, managing complex data and product processing systems.  You will need to be comfortable working effectively under pressure, with a minimum of supervision.  You will bring your experience of managing near real-time data processing of space-borne imaging and/or sounding instruments, along with an ability to work in a UNIX/LINUX environment.  Strong analytical and problem-solving skills are essential, as is an ability to write concise and focused technical support documentation.  You must be a team player, with the ability to effectively communicate complex information.  Given the operational nature of this role, you would be expected to provide on-call support.

    This is an outstanding opportunity to become involved in one of our most exciting projects.  You will get the chance to collaborate with both internal and external partners on a global platform.  

    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.
