Website C-CORE

At C-CORE, we are committed to investing in people and creating a dynamic and rewarding
employment experience. C-CORE is seeking an experienced Satellite Ground Station Manager
with a strong background in RF electronics and antenna systems to join its highly skilled team of
engineers and scientists. If you are self-motivated, a team player, and committed to technical
excellence, then this may be your opportunity.

C-CORE conducts R&D and provides research-based advisory services, delivering innovative
engineering and technology solutions to national and international clients. Over the past 45 years,
we have built a world-class team of over 90 dedicated professionals with a reputation for
excellence in Remote Sensing, Ice Engineering, and Geotechnical Engineering. We are looking for
outstanding technicians, engineers, and scientists to join our team.

As Satellite Ground Station Manager, you will be responsible for managing C-CORE’s satellite ground
station operations in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL, and Inuvik, NWT.

The successful candidate will have a hands-on approach to managing ground stations with
responsibility for leading client service reviews, managing spares and equipment plans,
performing Tier 1 and Tier 2 troubleshooting, overseeing monitor and control of the stations,
managing test and maintenance plans, performing on-site installations, or overseeing site
contractor installations, and managing ground station operational costs.

The successful candidate will have at least five years of previous experience in operating similar
facilities containing large satellite dishes, RF equipment, satellite or radio-telecommunication
equipment (e.g., cell sites, FM radio transmitters, broadcast satellite services). The successful
candidate will also possess exceptional analysis and problem-solving skills, strong communication
skills (spoken and written) and the ability to work both independently and in a team environment
as needed. A broad technical skillset is required for this position, and experience/knowledge in
at least several of the following is considered an asset:

  • RF electronics systems, in particular antenna systems;
  • Electro-mechanical equipment troubleshooting;
  • Electronic systems troubleshooting;
  • Development of electrical and electronics drawings, layouts and reports;
  • Hardware interfacing (e.g. cameras, sensors, DAQ’s, digital signal processing platforms);
  • Proficiency with custom cable and PCB assembly;
  • Familiarity with field test equipment and electronics testing; and
  • Proficient with standard Microsoft Office applications.

The position will require availability for service call-outs and flexible working hours to support the
ground station operational activities. Most of the work will be conducted from C-CORE’s St. John’s
office, however, occasional travel to the two remote operations sites in Happy Valley Goose Bay
and Inuvik will be required.

C-CORE is a dynamic company that offers competitive salary and benefits, including a generous
retirement savings plan, attractive vacation & leave entitlements, and medical & dental plans.
More importantly, we offer the opportunity for professional development, higher education and
personal growth.
