EUMETSAT is Europe’s meteorological satellite agency - monitoring the weather and climate from space - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
At EUMETSAT, you can make a world of difference and be a part of something that makes a positive impact on society. You will be at the cutting edge of satellite technology, with a meaningful role in an organisation focused on space-based observations of the Earth’s weather and climate.
EUMETSAT operates a growing fleet of Earth Observation satellites in Low Earth and geostationary orbits (currently comprising seven EUMETSAT Meteosat Second Generation and Metop satellites, and three satellites for the Copernicus Sentinel-3 and Sentinel-6 missions). In parallel, EUMETSAT is working towards the launch of the next generation of Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) and Metop Second Generation (Metop-SG) satellites.
Working within the LEO (Low Earth Orbit) Spacecraft Operations Team of the Flight Operations (FLO) Division, the Spacecraft Operations Engineer will support the operations preparation and operations of the future Metop Second Generation satellites, as well as the routine operations and monitoring of the Metop First Generation satellites. The main areas of focus will be the Attitude and Orbit Control (AOCS) subsystem, as well as the management of On-board Software (OBSW) and its maintenance process.
Within the LEO Spacecraft Operations Team of the Flight Operations (FLO) Division, the LEO Spacecraft Operations Engineers support flight operations of the Metop satellites and the development and operations preparation of future LEO satellite systems, in particular EPS/Metop-Second Generation.
EUMETSAT’s role is to establish and operate meteorological satellites to monitor the weather and climate from space - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This information is supplied to the National Meteorological Services of the organisation's Member and Cooperating States in Europe, as well as other users worldwide.
EUMETSAT also operates several Copernicus missions on behalf of the European Union and provide data services to the Copernicus marine and atmospheric services and their users.
As an intergovernmental European Organisation, EUMETSAT can recruit nationals only from the 30 Member States (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom).
