Be in the middle of everything ... and the only one who actually knows how it all works.


You’re in the core, the middle, the center. All roads go via you. Whatever it is they want, it requires you. You have deep experience using Python and varied open source packages to build serious cloud computing pipelines. We ingest many kinds of geospatial data and then we dice, slice, stretch, rotate, and combine them. We use deep learning to turn the pixels into numbers. We model, aggregate, transform the numbers into meaningful insights. This entire pipeline is formulated, created, monitored, and managed by you. Experience working at scale is pretty darned important. Experience with open source packages for machine vision, geospatial analysis, and data science is a big plus.


* Define algorithms for image ingestion, re-projection, tiling, normalization, spatial intersection, and other initial processing
* Maintain and process large amounts of geospatial data, write code for automating complex geospatial requests
* Build and maintain production pipelines for ingesting images from satellite/UAV operators and processing them in the cloud at scale
* Work with machine vision and data science teams to define and implement algorithms for multi-spectral image analysis, machine vision, and data analysis
* Work with Front End team to serve the results up to our users


* Bachelors Degree in Computer Science or related discipline
* 5+ years experience with Python or other similar language
* Knowledge of GDAL or Postgis a major plus
* Experience with large-scale analysis of satellite imagery a major plus
