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.
Spire’s Earth Observations Team is growing a portfolio of Earth observations products ranging from atmospheric profiles and derived weather observations to space weather monitoring. Our current products rely on unique measurements collected by our growing constellation of nanosatellites. The Earth Observations Ground Processing Software Engineer will design and implement new capabilities for the Spire Processing Center, interface with scientists to operationalize products, and work with the Operations Team to monitor system performance.
As an Earth observations Ground Processing Software Engineer, you will have the unique opportunity to be a part of a small and efficient team to develop, extend, and improve the Spire Earth observations data ground processing pipeline. The data are collected from Spire's growing constellation of nanosatellites in low Earth orbit. You will be integrated in the design, implementation, and continual improvement of Spire's Processing Center for processing a variety of Earth observations data. You will develop the framework primarily in Python and implement it with cloud computing infrastructure utilizing a CI/CD pipeline. Scaling the processing pipeline is a must, as Spire has ambitious plans to maintain a constellation of over 100 satellites within the next few years. A test-driven approach in the design and implementation is crucial for the system to operate reliably and continuously. This is an exciting opportunity to work with data derived on orbit, hundreds of kilometers above Earth's surface!
