About the job

Our client operates a fleet of geosynchronous satellites, providing a wide range of global communications services to maritime, air and land based sectors. They are looking for a Systems Engineer - Data Analysis, a role which will bring together your engineering experience with our client's network data to provide insights into system behaviour to improve network operation for their customers.

They are looking for an experienced Radio or Mobile Communications Systems Engineer with Development, Integration or Support experience, ideally with a mobile operator or manufacturer, who is looking for a role focusing on Data Analysis. Experience of VSAT satellite systems would be an advantage, but not essential.

In IT terms this role is for a Data Analyst, but this is a core engineering role where you will need to learn the tools (Splunk, Tableau, Qlik or similar) used for analysis. You will also need to develop the capability to manipulate data in the same way as a Data Scientist.

This role is for you if you are an engineer with good development experience in Radio Communications, Telecoms, or Satcoms (ideally VSAT) and are interested in leaving the development lifecycle to move into an engineering analysis role where you will combine your engineering knowledge with data analysis concepts to understand what the data is telling and provide insight into how this data can be used to optimise system performance.

As such, you will need to be degree qualified (or equivalent) in a relevant Engineering subject, with an excellent understanding of network topology and OSI model and in-depth understanding of VSAT and satellite networks, hardware and usage.

You are likely to have experience of ITIL Service Operation processes and will have excellent analytical and problem-solving skills, will be highly motivated to succeed with the resourceful nature needed to use all tools, expertise and knowledge bases to investigate and resolve problems. You will also have the ability to understand new software and able to work efficiently on multiple projects.

In addition, the following would be beneficial:
*Previous knowledge of scripting languages (Perl, VB scripts, etc)
*Practical knowledge of Cisco switches and routers, including configuration and system commands
