Senior Software Engineer (EarthMosaics)

EarthDaily Analytics

This is a Contract position in Vancouver, BC posted January 21, 2023.

OUR VISION At EarthDaily Analytics we strive to build a more sustainable planet by creating innovative solutions that combine satellite imagery of the Earth, modern software engineering, machine learning, and cloud computing to help solve the world’s toughest challenges in agriculture, water management, forestry, carbon capture verification and more.

Our focus has been on building the world’s most advanced satellite image processing pipelines capable of delivering automated, reliable, meaningful analytics from our customers’ satellites and our own as well as a next generation Earth observation platform.

Our belief is that insights can only be as good as the data itself and we pride ourselves on generating the highest quality data products in the industry.

EarthMosaics is one of our core services that automatically generates Analysis Ready Mosaics, allowing our customers to access large scale seamless composite images with artifacts and clouds removed.

These mosaics are designed to power ML driven applications with highly accurate geometry (location) and radiometry (colour).

Our Analysis Ready Mosaics are generated with advanced mathematical models, cutting-edge computer vision techniques, and high-performance distributed processing.

Lake Shasta Reservoir Evolution over Time with EarthMosaics OUR TEAM We’re a multidisciplinary team of software engineers with backgrounds in Geography, Physics, Computer Science, Atmospheric Studies, Mathematics, Cloud Infrastructure, Industrial Design, and Aerospace Engineering among others.

The broad range of expertise is core to our success in building the most innovative technologies on (and off) the planet.

Our team of experts have developed the world’s first colour HD video from space, web-based patented Earth observation analytics platform, and have also built the world’s first automated satellite processing service which is being applied to partner satellites and our upcoming constellation slated to launch in 2024.

Our Software Engineers embrace a DevOps culture, work as a highly collaborative team in an agile based iterative development environment and are leading the next revolution in satellite-based Earth Observation remote sensing through problem solving, growth and ownership.


Are you interested in the “new frontier” known as the space industry?

Do you aspire to build innovative, ground-breaking software technologies?

At EarthDaily Analytics, we strive for the best of both worlds, where we collaborate and support each other to collectively deliver the most intelligent and sophisticated software capabilities the space industry has ever seen.

If you enjoy and have experience developing big data pipelines and product-focused solutions in the cloud, we would love to hear from you.

We are actively seeking a Senior Software Engineer, EarthMosaics to join our team and together further our mission to build a more sustainable planet.

PREPARE FOR IMPACT As a Senior Software Engineer, EarthMosaics you will be responsible for owning and developing innovative and scalable technologies for generating the high quality Earth Observation mosaics that are urgently needed to help support some of the world’s most challenging problems.
