We are looking for a project engineer to take on responsibility for developing C/C++ software for earth-observation space-mission payload simulation. The job calls for a capacity of understanding, analyzing, improving and, in some cases, designing complex physical algorithms to be implemented in C/C++ or Matlab. The main tasks are:

  • Analysis of technical documentation describing the operation of onboard space-mission instruments.
  • Analysis or definition of algorithms that enable the behavior of various instruments to be simulated
  • C/C++ or Matlab coding and unit testing of these algorithms.
  • C/C++ or Matlab implementation of other simulation support functions
  • Integration and orchestration of algorithms in one monolithic application.
  • System testing.
  • Documenting the non-conformity correction and validation results.
