Darmstadt, Germany

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 Data Re-processing Engineer 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.

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!

Within the Data Processing Systems and Applications Team of the System Engineering and Projects (SEP) Division, the data reprocessing engineer(s) will provide engineering and technical support to the design, development, verification and validation of the different processing systems used for climate activities as well as the systems used to reprocess data to align archives with the evolved baseline of the operational processors.

The Re-processing Team is composed of very competent and talented people that are dealing with the latest technologies (current and future state of the art) applicable for cloud/bulk data re-processing systems. The team needs to face and resolve very challenging projects where thinking outside of the box is essential and bringing innovative ideas is mandatory.
