    • Support SES Field Offices in performing the oversight of the SES-NEXT payload’s active antennas and SSPA development and, as appropriate, attend relevant meetings and reviews with both SES internal and external stake holders (spacecraft payload manufacturers, antennas and SSPA’s suppliers).

    • Early detection and identification of critical problem areas throughout the design, construction and test phases of the satellites’ payload.

    • Safe guarding SES interests in the case of technical or programmatic issues arising.

     

    Experience

    • Solid background in digital communication/RF engineering, satellite payload architecture and antennas

    • Ability to find and propose pragmatic solutions on payload issues compatible with the cost and schedule of the program, and in close collaboration with the manufacturers, the SES field office team and the specialists within SES.

    • Excellent communications skills both written and oral.

    • University degree in one of the following fields: Electrical/Telecommunication/RF and Microwave Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Engineering Physics or equivalent. Masters or Ph.D. is an asset.

    • Experience in the design and development of solid-state amplifiers and active antennas.

    • Solid experience with RF hardware, antennas, and/or with payload system engineering, related to telecommunication satellites would be considered an asset.
