Company description:

EUMETSAT is Europe’s meteorological satellite agency, operating satellites that monitor the weather and climate from space - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

EUMETSAT is an international organisation employing staff from across all 30 member states and this role is being advertised on multiple international job boards, but please note that this role would be based in Darmstadt, Germany and would require international applicants to relocate if successful.

This is your chance to contribute to a world leading earth observation programme, set to generate global weather forecasting and climate monitoring benefits.

EUMETSAT operates a growing fleet of Earth Observation satellites in Low Earth and Geostationary orbits, focussing on the provision of satellite data services to its Member States and to the European Union Copernicus Programme.

Within the Programme Preparation and Development Department (PRD), the Low Earth Orbit Division (LEO) is responsible for the development the EUMETSAT Polar System Second Generation (EPS-SG) system until hand-over to routine operations.

Located in the System Team of the LEO Division, the System Engineer takes responsibilities on all LEO system engineering activities, with a particular focus on the Space Segment, the Mission Control chain and the associated system interfaces and design. The System Engineer’s main responsibilities will be within the EUMETSAT Polar System Second Generation (EPS-SG) programme. Please note that this is a 3-year fixed term contract and NOT a permanent position.


Job description:

Duties
* Develop and maintain the system requirements and support the definition of the corresponding satellite, instrument and ground segment requirements for existing and new Polar programmes;
