Simulation Data Engineer

Based in Bournemouth

Micro Nav is an award-winning company and world leader in the delivery of simulation and training solutions for Air Traffic Control operations. One of our industry leading products, INTERACT, integrates an ATC environment within commercial grade flight simulators.

We are currently looking for a highly motivated Simulation Data Engineer to join our growing INTERACT team. The successful candidate will have the ATM knowledge necessary to interpret published aeronautical charts and replicate this information within the simulation database. The role will be responsible for the creation of the simulation data for both air and ground environments. In addition, generation of realistic scenarios, which simulate real-world aircraft operations and traffic patterns, are also the responsibility of the Simulation Data Engineer. Reporting to the Data Manager, the role requires a motivated self-starter, who will use the in-house data creation applications to produce the required data. The successful candidate will possess excellent verbal and written communication skills and have experience working within a multidiscipline team. As the role is new within the company, the appointee will have a considerable scope to develop processes and shape the tools required to optimise the data creation and scenario/traffic generation tasks.
