Development and Operations Engineer – Senior

Currently Element 84 is looking for candidates to work as a senior technical engineer to provide technical leadership on NASA’s Earth Observation System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) EED program. The EOSDIS is a core capability in NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems Program.

For the EOS satellite missions, EOSDIS provides capabilities for command and control, scheduling, data capture and initial processing.

The candidate will provide technical leadership for development and deployment of the EOSDIS User Registration System (URS). The URS provides a uniform mechanism for registering and authenticating users for access to EOSDIS data so information about these accesses can be provided to report statistics about user interests and access patterns including the number of users, type and amount of data archived, type and amount of data distributed. The URS also enables status change notifications to users regarding availability of EOSDIS data and services.
