Lead InSAR Engineer

Delft, The Netherlands
Added: February 10, 2024
We are SkyGeo and everyday we provide our clients with essential geotechnical insights that allow them to understand very early how ground movement will impact their valuable assets. We have built an excellent and diverse team to approach InSAR increasingly as a professional service.

To keep getting better at providing these insights at scale, we need the best people working with us. We are looking for colleagues who want to help build the business and to grow professionally by discovering a wide range of applications.

Your Role & Impact

Our Data Analytics team is looking for a Lead InSAR engineer with ambition! Your strong quantitative skills will help you to apply our technology in projects and with your passion for Geoscience and innovation you’ll help us develop our range of products to serve our internal and external stakeholders as best as we can.

Preferably, this position will be located in Delft, the Netherlands, but we are open for remote working.

Your Main Responsibilities

Of course, we will teach you InSAR the “SkyGeo way” and we will get you up to speed to find new ways to implement and integrate our data into geotechnical engineering practices. Your focus will be on:

  • Processing, modeling and visualization of InSAR data
  • Working with customers and partners on using InSAR for complex projects
  • Implementing and improving existing algorithms
  • Providing (technical) support to our commercial and Data Analytics team
  • Coach and train junior colleagues.

We offer an opportunity to:

  • Bring in your experience, technical skills and vision to build a next-generation Earth Observation business and applications.
  • Apply SAR to real-world problems (e.g. civil engineering, energy industry, mining)
  • Work with all SAR datasets (commercial and open source) and with various beam modes
  • Learn from and further develop our state-of-the-art object-oriented InSAR processor
  • Work with a wide variety of colleagues and customers: civil engineers, geomatic engineers, computer scientists, geophysicists, geodesists, geologists
  • Publish your work in the scientific community.

Our ideal candidate

We are looking for a great team player, with an entrepreneurial mindset, who is comfortable in a rapidly changing environment. Besides your outstanding quantitative and analytical skills, and your ability to focus on deadlines and results, we like you to bring:

  • A Ph.D. degree in engineering, signal processing, remote sensing or equivalent education.
  • At least 2 years experience of working with very high-resolution InSAR data (X-band), in a professional company with project management/customer-facing environment.
  • Broad experience with coregistration, amplitude, and InSAR processing software packages
  • A full understanding of all parts of an advanced SAR/InSAR processing chain, including all elements of DInSAR, SBAS and PSI processing, for the application of different processing approaches to problems in civil engineering, slope stability, mining, and oil and gas.
  • Understanding of the fundamentals of digital signal processing.
  • Software development experience, preferably with Python, and using object-oriented programming.
  • Excellent written and oral reporting skills, while continuous communication with colleagues is a key part of this position.

What's in it for you?

  • A job that matters in a dynamic environment with a scale-up approach
  • An independent role with a supportive and diverse work environment
  • An international and ambitious team (10+ nationalities)
  • Hybrid working environment (with an office in the historic city center of Delft)
  • A lot of freedom for initiative, personal & career growth
  • Complete coverage for commuting and 25 days holiday
  • Fun team-building and after-work drinks.
