The Mission

We are looking for talented Data Engineers with demonstrated real-world experience to help us conceptualize, implement and operationalize mission-critical software components at the heart of our satellite constellation. As a key member of our team, you'll play an essential role in the ongoing operation and enhancement of our space-based sensor network for wildfire detection - transforming raw sensor data into geophysical quantities, directly contribute to refining our ability to monitor and respond to wildfires, helping to safeguard communities, preserve wildlife, and protect ecosystems worldwide.

What you’ll be doing

  • Development & Operations: Engage in end-to-end development of cloud and embedded solutions, with a strong focus on building and deploying functionality for our operational satellite constellation.
  • Code Management: Establish and participate in code reviews, and adhere to established git workflows to ensure high-quality software development. Utilize GitLab as the primary version control platform.
  • Continuous Integration: Establish and maintain automated end-to-end testing frameworks for our satellite platform, and be responsible for CI pipelines ensuring software robustness and reliability.
  • Teamwork & Communication: Work as an integral part of an agile development team, emphasizing asynchronous communications. You're expected to prioritize your work, focusing on impactful tasks and taking responsibility for deliverables.
  • Algorithm Development: Design and implement Earth Observation algorithms and pipelines that turn raw sensor data into (geo)physical quantities, focusing on accuracy and applicability.
  • Resource-Constrained Optimization: Efficiently adapt and deploy data processing components to operate within the limited resources of an NVIDIA Jetson platform in space.
  • Output Management & Collaboration: Assessment of algorithm results, ensuring to meet quality standards (Calibration/Validation), and working with customers in the wildfire sector to align outputs with their requirements.
  • Tech Stack Proficiency: While Python remains an essential part of our stack, proficiency in other high-level, type-safe languages is valued. Familiarity with the shell and general software engineering principles is a must.

We're looking for someone who’s proactive, with a strong ability to understand the bigger picture while also diving deep into technical details.
