Job Title

Senior Platform/Infrastructure Engineer, Platform


Job Description

This role sits in the Product Engineering Group on the Platform Team.  The Product Engineering group starts with raw pixels from our constellation and applies the latest software innovations to deliver a full product to our users. We leverage the latest browser technologies and a scalable compute/storage cluster to push the boundaries of geospatial software. We're rethinking how we find, use, and interact with remote sensing data from the ground up, bringing the industry squarely into the 21st century.

The Platform Team at Planet Labs builds all the interactions between our data and the world. We build APIs and backend services on which we build experiments of advanced geospatial data capabilities in the browser, and create apps and products that delight our customers. We seek a developer with interest in building scalable services to serve, process, and manage tons of imagery data. Our team currently codes primarily in Python and JavaScript. We build our applications on a foundation of open source projects. Our goal is to become active contributors of those projects and dedicated stewards of new open source image analysis and mapping libraries.
