MISSION   Within the Ground Segment and Operations Team and under the direct supervision of the Spacecraft Operations Manager (SOM), the Spacecraft Operations Engineer (SOE) will be part of a team involved in activities related to the development, maintenance and evolution of the Spacecraft and System engineering of PLATiNO-1 mission in Sitael, currently in phase C/D. The successful candidate will provide operations expertise to one or more platform subsystems and / or payload instrument(s), depending on his or her experience and the overall team needs. He or she shall primarily provide support to the PLATiNO-1 operations, as well as further platform subsystems and / or payload instruments on other missions, depending on the overall Sitael needs. The SOE will also coordinate with external teams responsible for on-board software management, simulator support, mission control, mission planning, flight dynamics and ground stations. The SOE will be required to support operations during normal working hours.
