👷 Frontend Engineer (Senior)

All Space jobs

At Loft Orbital, we have just successfully launched our first two satellites that we fly and operate ourselves. We are now actively looking for frontend engineers to join and help us build the next missions and the apps to test and pilot our spacecraft! 🛰️ 🛰️ 🛰️

We are based in San Francisco (California), Golden (Colorado) and Toulouse (France), and will consider remote positions.

About Loft Orbital

We build shareable satellites to make access to space much faster and easier. This means that we embark multiple customers on the same satellite, for example to take pictures, support IoT connectivity, act as blockchain nodes, etc… This service is powered by our hardware and software products that enable any payload to fly on a standard satellite, reducing the lead-time and risk of a traditional space mission. Our customers trust us to manage their space infrastructure, so they can focus on what matters most to them: operate their payload and collect their data.

What’s also special about Loft is that our devs (including frontend) get a satellite pilot training and certification. It’s pretty unique, especially when you finally get to take your very first own picture of Earth from space!

Wanna join the adventure?

Our front-end team has talented individual contributors both in Europe and in the US. We need talents that have experienced a project done at scale and master best practices. We are looking for engineers to bring fresh ideas and perspectives to the team so we can scale and grow further.
