Magellium (Artal Group), with its 300 employees, is an independent company, specialised in the value chain of remote sensing data (from the satellite or drone sensor to its use in earth observation systems and services, cartography and geo-intelligence) which promotes mastery of space technologies, software, signal processing and geomatics.
As part of its Earth Observation activities, Magellium is involved in major programs led by space or operational agencies. These Earth observation projects implement scientific processing chains for the satellites’ payload. These processing chains, either prototypes or operational chains, are developed as part of the ground segments of satellite missions. The specificity of these processing activities lies in the multiple required capabilities in scientific or algorithmic techniques of remote sensing, engineering methods, software and IT, in a processing environment often constrained by robustness and performance.
The skills and experience developed in processing development activities for space ground segments are brought together within a specific section of about ten people within the Magellium Earth Observation (EO) unit. The unit currently gathers 5 thematic sections: Geometry of sensors, Image Quality, Ground Segments, Physics and Applications, Climate.
Directly reporting to EO Unit director, you will be responsible for the Ground Segment section, which represents a specific skill centre and a team of around ten people.
This responsibility is divided into the following areas :
You hold a Master of Science, or PHD, you have solid and validated experience in the field of space ground segments, the methodologies involved, in particular in Earth Observation. You also have a significant experience in the field of remote sensing, processing in optical imaging, atmospheric sounding or possibly in other fields. In addition, your experience proves your skills in team management and work organization for a seamless and optimised collective framework.
Required Skills :
•Management of teams and complex projects,
•Experience in hierarchical functions
•Capabilities in business development within the scope of responsibility,
•Ability to organize teamwork, to delegate,
•Ability to provide reliable and accurate information to team members and unit management,
•In-depth knowledge of space ground segments and methodologies related to the development life cycle, engineering standards (e.g. ECSS), the main architectural principles of scientific data processing chains in Earth Observation,
•Scientific and computer expertise in the field of Earth observation, remote sensing,
•Ability to lead discussions, negotiations with customers, subcontractors, partners,
•Ability to write, present the activity, carry out representation and communication actions,
•Fluency in written and spoken English (and French as much as possible).
•Great adaptability and ability to tackle new technical subjects,
•Great professional rigor,
•Taste for scientific fields,
•Strong ability to work in a team
•Good interpersonal skills, communication skills, transparency and reliability,
•Sense of responsibility and commitment.
