We are looking for a Market Analysis and Business Intelligence Engineer to join our team at the Directorate of Navigation. Our organization is at the forefront of the satellite navigation sector, which has been evolving at an increasing pace over the last few years. This is largely due to the emergence of many Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) providers from around the world, including Galileo, GPS, Beidou and Glonass, along with a surge of investment in the downstream application sector for location-based services.

The role entails supporting the Directorate of Navigation in acquiring business intelligence and developing market analyses across the institutional, research and commercial space Positioning Navigation and Timing (PNT) activities worldwide, including socioeconomic impact analysis. You will be responsible for monitoring and assessing the navigation market evolution and changes expected in the coming years and decades, gathering data on trends and behaviours to help ESA define Europe’s PNT strategy.

Job requirements include a master’s degree in a relevant domain, strong problem-solving skills, demonstrated planning and organisational skills, and a strong result orientation with the ability to set priorities and present practical solutions both orally and in writing. Direct experience of working within satellite navigation in particular and PNT in general would be of additional value. Extensive system engineering experience in Galileo, EGNOS or LEO-PNT and detailed Galileo system knowledge is an asset.

We offer a diverse, international team environment and are committed to achieving diversity within the workforce and creating an inclusive working environment. We welcome applications from all qualified candidates irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, beliefs, age, disability or other characteristics. Applications from women are encouraged. We seek to accommodate individuals with disabilities by providing the necessary support at the workplace.

Please note that applicants must be eligible for security clearance by their national security administrations. During the recruitment process, the Agency may request applicants to undergo selection tests. Additionally, successful candidates will need to undergo basic screening before appointment, which will be conducted by an external background screening service, in compliance with the European Space Agency's security procedures.
