The role

We are seeking an experienced remote sensing expert to lead and coordinate our team of enthusiastic scientists, all experts in their own disciplines within a competence area.

In this role you will have the chance to interact with user communities, analyse their feedback on current products and potential new requirements. You will also support the Satellite Application Facilities (SAFs) involved in the extraction of EUMETSAT optical imagery products.
