ALTEC is involved in several  Science and Technological Programme in the aerospace domain where data systems are software components that together with infrastructure and communication constitutes ground segment of space mission. Data systems are essential are they are reliable and performant software needed to provide ground segment services and execute operations. The Data Processing System and Scientific and Technological Application group host the engineers, physicists and mathematicians who oversee the space mission data system from definition to end of operations; it develops the data systems for the missions and support execution of science operations on ground; and it archives and curates their data during operations and beyond. Moreover, it is involved in the post-mission data exploitation in order to create application devoted to maximize the information value extracted from collected data.


    You will be part of the team that is in charge of all engineering aspects of the development, implementation and maintenance of software data systems under the ALTEC responsibility.

    You will work in close collaboration with the data engineers, data scientists, mission operators and infrastructure engineer during project phases.

    You will be expected to endeavor for innovation and excellence in software engineering within the aerospace domain.
