Make Impossible Possible in New Space – Join ICEYE

At ICEYE, we are building and operating our own commercial constellation of synthetic
aperture radar (SAR) satellites, with SAR data already available to customers. To support
the growth of the company, we are now looking for experienced Software Engineers to join
our Ground Station Communications and Satellite Operations Automation teams, in Krakow,
Poland or in our headquarters in Espoo, Finland.

We are looking for experienced software engineers who are able to write mission control
software that enables us to manage our satellite constellation. In the Ground Station
Communications team, your responsibilities are to write software that ensures successful
ground-space connection when transferring data between satellite and ground services and
manage data for these activities. In the Satellite Operations Automation team, your
responsibilities will focus on automating our constant operations and satellite task
scheduling.

You will be developing new features, as well as new software from scratch, to make modular
and extensible systems, highly available and horizontally scalable. You will help design and
implement all layers of it, and also provide APIs to internal stakeholders. Our stack is for the
most part Python services running on Kubernetes, and we do a lot of our own DevOps with
infrastructure as code, be it Kubernetes manifests or Terraform infrastructure. We follow an
agile process, aim at best practices, and are always willing to improve.

What you will do:

– Developing our satellite constellation control components currently written in Python
with the flavor of other supporting languages, tools, and frameworks
– Following our agile processes, provide feedback and help to continuously improve
them.
– Participating in architecting our future software solutions, creating strong APIs for our
microservices.
– Taking ownership of relevant products, gathering feedback from users, and creating
plans to incorporate them.
– Keeping your development skills up to date with recent trends and best practices.
– Understanding and maintaining spacecraft domain with relevant interest and
experience

What you need to succeed:

– Enjoy working in a team and have the right mix of getting stuff done and having fun.
– A solid hands-on software engineer and you can show it. You get things done, but
also know when to take the time to get the design right.
– Outstanding coding skills in Python. Demonstrable interest in learning new software
engineering technologies, principles, and methods.
– Understanding of agile software development methodologies and experience working
in an agile team before.
– Experience creating CI/CD pipelines as well as working with containers and
orchestration.
– Knowledge of GNU/Linux systems is essential, with shell scripting and networking a
plus.
– Have worked with and can consider trade-offs of different architectures, such as
event-driven versus request/response, microservices versus monolith
– Experience working with software security, microservices, containers, AWS/cloud
computing, and infrastructure as code will be seen as a great advantage.
– Understanding spacecraft domain is considered an advantage, but we value
eagerness to learn it in case there is no prior experience

What we offer:

– A job that matters in a dynamic New Space environment with a scale-up approach
– An independent role with a supportive and diverse work environment
– Occupational healthcare, occupational and private insurance
– A yearly benefit budget to spend as you wish (i.e. on sport, transport, wellness,
lunch, etc.)
– Relocation support (i.e. flight tickets, accommodation, relocation buddy program)
– Time for self-development, research, training, conferences, or certification schemes
– Inspiring and collaborating offices and silent workspaces enabling you to focus
– Regular internal events for employees (e.g. sports events, team-building events,
parties, etc.)
– A wide variety of best coffee, tea, snacks, and sweets to accompany your daily space
mission
– Unleash your potential with us and join our next space missions coming soon!

About us:

ICEYE is building and operating its own commercial constellation of synthetic aperture radar
(SAR) satellites with SAR data already available to customers. These satellites can take
images of Earth at any time – even when it’s cloudy or dark. Information derived from these
images will help our customers understand the world better and help them make more
intelligent decisions. We launched the world’s first SAR microsatellite in January 2018 and
have raised $152M in financing to date.

We are a Finnish-based international New Space company with employees from roughly 40
countries and subsidiaries in the US, UK and Poland. Our team is a tight-knit group of
experts from a range of areas including engineering, software development, and radar
technology.

We’re innovative, driven, and strive for excellence in everything we do. We don’t listen to
people who say it can’t be done: we go and do it!
