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.
The Advanced Signal Processing Group (ASPG) is part of Spire’s office of the CTO. This is a small, tightly knit, highly collaborative team spread across the world. Spire owns and operates over 120 nanosatellites constantly collecting RF activity across the spectrum and this team has the sole responsibility of monitoring, detecting, geolocating, and providing other actional near real-time insights. Detection of Illegal fishing, trafficking, and GNSS jammer detection and geolocation are all daily applications one can look forward to in this role.
As a Senior FPGA Engineer, you will translate, augment, and implement prototyped algorithms into productionized ideas for use on-orbit. You will work in a small team that will iteratively expedite the design and validation of FPGA-based solutions meant to actualize real-time processing onboard our spectrum monitoring capabilities. You will utilize SDR concepts and architecture with embedded linux integration.
You will have the responsibility to ensure that we deliver high-quality, low-latency services and products and the freedom to pursue novel, high-impact applications. In collaboration with our algorithms and payload teams, you will implement algorithms for automating, monitoring, and delivering high impact RF insights over the globe and spectrum. Instead of your ideas and efforts sitting on a shelf or hidden in theory, you will see and experience them actually working in space within months of joining Spire.
Spire is Global and our success draws upon the diverse viewpoints, skills and experiences of our employees. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender identity or veteran status.
