Come and let us help you to develop your engineering profile in the space sector!


Are you inspired by the idea of working in a global operational satellite agency based in the heart of Europe?  EUMETSAT operates meteorological satellites to monitor the weather and climate from space and we are committed to being the leading user-driven operational agency in Europe for earth observation satellite programmes. The success of our missions are crucial for weather forecasting and environmental monitoring, and you could play a part in this.


Meteorological satellites are an invaluable asset for weather forecasting and understanding of our changing climate, and their role will grow increasingly important with the next generations of our systems. We are looking for a Quality Assurance Engineer to join us.  You will work with all parts of our organisation, engaging our teams to embed quality into everything we do.


You will join a forward thinking, dynamic team. If you have a passion for quality and space, we can offer an opportunity to develop your understanding of space engineering.  Collaborating with our project teams, you will encourage them to focus on their ways of working and to find more efficient solutions to the challenges they face in developing and delivering our missions.  You will be committed to quality assurance and will need to be proactive, supporting your colleagues in identifying quality improvements and sharing best practice.  You will have the capability to run training sessions, when required.


Along with a degree (or equivalent), in computer science or engineering, you will be able to demonstrate that you have the skills and experience in the following areas:-

  • experience of working in an environment where you have introduced quality assurance processes
  • experience of using quality assurance to bring about business improvement
  • an ability to apply excellent interpersonal and communication skills to engage your colleagues
  • a qualification in quality control would be an advantage, but is not essential

In addition to an attractive salary and benefits package, EUMETSAT provides an outstanding working environment in Darmstadt, ‘the City of Science’. We can support new staff with re-location and child-care advice, as well as language training, if you are new to the area.


All applicants must be EUMETSAT member state nationals with a working knowledge of the English language, both spoken and written. You also require some knowledge of French.

EUMETSAT is committed to providing an equal opportunities work environment for men and women.
