Planet Labs

Job Title

Data Ops Engineer


Job Description

Here at Planet we approach hardware development like software: we release early and release often. Our philosophy is build it, break it and then rebuild it better. That thinking is at the core of how we approach testing at Planet’s unique Space Lab.

Test Engineers at Planet design and build software and hardware to automate functional & integration testing, instrument calibration, and environmental testing for both production and validation. As a Test Engineer, you will be part of the Manufacturing Operations Team and you are integral in ensuring existing and new spacecraft designs will function as designed in orbit.

Our test software platform is mainly built upon Python, but it is also very helpful if you can read and understand C++ and embedded C code.
