EUMETSAT is Europe’s meteorological satellite agency - monitoring the weather and climate from space - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We are currently looking for an experienced Reprocessing Coordinator to join our international team of young and inspiring engineers and industry professionals, tasked with driving innovation within the Space, Satellite and Earth Observation sector, specifically on the EU’s Earth observation ‘Copernicus programme’.
This role is rooted in the mission of EUMETSAT and will provide the opportunity to work with leading IT, Space and Earth Observation organisations and domain experts to make a positive impact on society!
EUMETSAT operates a series of Copernicus Sentinel satellites on behalf of the European Commission, providing data used to monitor various components of the Earth System. For specific applications, such as climate monitoring, a consistent time series needs to be built from a number of instruments covering the whole mission lifetime, of which each dataset must be of the highest quality. This quality is achieved by means of data reprocessing to use the best algorithms and most up-to-date data. The work is often coordinated internationally and requires internal collaboration and planning between scientists and engineers.
The Copernicus Reprocessing Coordinator will plan, coordinate and implement mass data processing activities for Copernicus mission data, including interactions with the community of users on their needs. The successful candidate will work within the Climate Team of the User Support and Climate Services Division, which produces reprocessed data records, has strong experience in data processing and holds the coordination role for EUMETSAT’s reprocessing activities.
APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED IN ENGLISH. WE WILL BE UNABLE TO CONSIDER APPLICATIONS SUBMITTED IN OTHER LANGUAGES.
