Spaceknow

Founded in 2013, Spaceknow, Inc. is an aerospace, Silicon Valley, venture capital-backed startup. Spaceknow works by bringing transparency to the global economy by tracking global economic trends from space through their Analytics-as-a-Service products. The company develops these products for monitoring economic activity for a wide variety of both consumer and enterprise clients. Spaceknow developed a proprietary interface to access multiple imagery provider’s image archives and data feeds. Currently we have unified access to three operators with new ones being added monthly. Spaceknow is working towards a future where all the world’s imaging platforms are available through our interface.

Join a team of passionate Pythonistas and build systems like no one has ever done before!

We are looking for talented people rather than having specific requirements (Python, Java, C#, C++ or similar). Our daily bread is designing APIs, and improving scalability, security and stability of the platform. All backend systems are accessible via RESTful APIs, hosted on Google Cloud Platform and written in Python.

We utilize technologies such as:

  • Kubernetes
  • Google Cloud Platform
  • RabbitMQ
  • Redis
  • MongoDB

Our development process is test driven. We do code review on all changes or pair programming. We are building a continuous deployment ecosystem and have very agile/lean attitude. Every good idea is considered because we believe that meritocracy is the best way to lead skilled people.

Joining Spaceknow, you will join a young team of talented and highly motivated people who strive to make an impact on the world but also have fun along the way.

SpaceKnow provides transparency to global changes and trends by combining the world’s largest collection of satellite imagery with a proprietary artificial intelligence engine. Our vision is to index the physical world and empower users with near-realtime large-scale analysis to drive decision making.

SpaceKnow has two distinct products: a web-based, on-demand geospatial analytics platform (also available through API), as well as a growing suite of economic index offerings delivered through Bloomberg. The backend team ensures this can happen by creating a distributed and fault-tolerant platform that scales from couple to thousands of nodes.
