In the time it takes you to read this job description our low earth orbit nanosatellites would have passed overhead at least three times traveling at around 8km a second.
Onboard the satellites are collecting and downloading radio signals from over 80 thousand vessels that are moving 90% of the world's cargo around the globe.
The Maritime team at Spire is focused on taking that data and impacting the world in positive ways.
As a software engineer at Spire on our Maritime team, you’ll move fast, iterate quickly, and solve global problems. You might be the right fit if you love exciting technical challenges, hate getting bored, and enjoy collaborating with engineers who are changing the way the world thinks about space, satellites, and data.
You will join a team responsible for the design and maintenance of our ground-side data processing pipeline, from ingesting satellite data all the way through designing and scaling the APIs that our customers depend on for global data insights.
We care a lot about the quality and expressiveness of our code. We think TDD is great, and we’re doing Continuous Deployment to our staging environments and working our way to make that true for production as well.
We know that DevOps is a culture and it’s a big part of how we work. We recognize that professional growth comes from operating at the boundaries of our comfort zones, and we encourage and support each other through code reviews, pair programming, and lots of communication.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, we’d love to hear from you!
