About the Company
Spire Global is a space-to-cloud analytics company that owns and operates the largest multi-purpose constellation of satellites. Its proprietary data and algorithms provide the most advanced maritime, aviation, and weather tracking in the world. In addition to its constellation, Spire’s data infrastructure includes a global ground station network and 24/7 operations that provide real-time global coverage of every point on Earth.
Our products are data analytics APIs consumed by governments and small businesses alike seeking best in class information on weather, maritime activity, aviation activity, or looking to leverage our space program to launch and operate custom hardware.
Spire is hiring a Staff Security Engineer to implement foundational state of the art security best practices, tooling, automation, and infrastructure to achieve comprehensive logging, monitoring, and alerting. You will be implementing modern identity and access management models, building security by default into our CI/CD pipelines, and serving as a subject matter expert (read: leet at Googling things) across our diverse engineering organization.
Ideally you’ll be co-located in Glasgow with the bulk of our platform-as-a-service (PaaS) team, and act as an expert resource in containerization and orchestration to our software PaaS and applications teams, ultimately helping to shape and implement the Spire Security Program. Spire is amenable to filling this role in San Francisco, CA or remotely within the United States.
Our team’s approach is centered around managing risk and achieving compliance through automation rather than procedures, and through DevSecOps tooling rather than by security decrees. You’ll navigate and actualize the Spire Security Controls considering both security and engineering velocity, and help guide teams through software architecture and implementation, operational concerns, and documentation.
We are looking for someone who’s excited about security, data, space, and likes to move fast, iterate quickly, and work with small, global autonomous teams of highly capable people that care deeply about what they do.
