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.

You will write software that monitors and safeguards the operation of our payloads in the satellite constellation, ensuring that we can scale as Spire’s constellation continues to grow. You will also work closely with the satellite operations team to tune the payload configuration and to drive the investigation into any payload anomalies.
