Join Planet and be a part of our mission to change the way people see the world. Planet is a global company with employees working remotely world wide and joining us from offices in San Francisco, Washington DC, Germany, and The Netherlands. About the Role: Planet efficiently and safely operates several medium and high resolution spacecraft constellations. Managing these valuable assets is a highly technical feat and the teams that do so consist of skilled engineers from a variety of backgrounds, having collectively worked on more than 30 space missions. Together, these teams support spacecraft commissioning and anomaly resolution, maintain uptime, conduct on orbit special activities, and perform development towards future automation. This role is specifically focused on the safe operations of the SkySat constellation. Operators are frequently the first to detect and triage anomalous behavior, therefore an understanding of how each spacecraft subsystem relates to one another is important. You can anticipate working in a close collaborative environment, frequently communicating with hardware and software experts to understand anomalies and develop procedures. You will be a go to person for carrying out on-orbit tasking such as propulsive maneuvers, flight software updates, and telemetry analysis. Expect to be in the middle of it all, as the work of the Missions team is essential to Planet’s success. You will be responsible for the safe and stable operations of our fleet as we integrate all operations teams together. Impact You’ll Own: Develop a thorough understanding of a spacecraft bus, and how it is operated. Build and edit python scripts to carry out activities on a spacecraft. Monitor all spacecraft for proper operation, responding to all off-nominal contingencies (telemetry limit violations, configuration and status changes, subsystem and operational anomalies, etc). Participate in on-call rotation in support of spacecraft uptime. Develop automated responses and processes, including services, for any manual operations. What You Bring: Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering or other engineering/science related field from an accredited college or technical school. Experience with Python scripting, command line interface, and Git version control. Experience with data analysis and trending. Experience in process automation, from design to software development. Excellent attention to detail, procedural discipline, and workflow management. Ability to work independently and creatively Exceptional communication (verbal and written) and collaboration skills and ability to clearly report and log complex events. What Makes You Stand Out: Masters of Science in Aerospace Engineering or other engineering/science related fields. Previous satellite operations, space mission experience or space systems integration & test experience. Experience with Confluence and JIRA software.

Planet is a global company with employees working remotely world wide and joining us from offices in San Francisco, Washington DC, Germany, and The Netherlands. About the Role: The Platform Engineering pillar is dedicated to enabling service performance and developer efficiency through a comprehensive internal “platform as a service”. As part of Platform Engineering, the Internal Developer Experience team ensures our internal platform not only performs as expected but is optimized for frictionless use by software teams. As a Senior Software Engineer, you will be a steward and a “voice of the Planet software engineer” for developer-facing tools. The ideal candidate is excited by the opportunity to enable software engineering at scale and empower developers to do great work on a purpose-built platform. Impact You’ll Own: Building platforms that provide Planet developers confidence in operating their applications. Fostering greater consistency of engineering practices across software teams, and providing “golden paths” to support those practices. Creating and sustaining developer experiences that promote quality, speed, and joy. Building and maintaining “core services” that support/enable customer-facing services in a reusable way. Full service ownership by authoring run-books, measuring performance, creating alerts, being on call, and responding to incidents and performance anomalies. What You Bring: Here's a collection of some of the skills we value. Don't be discouraged if your strengths lie in particular areas more than others: that's what a team is for! Demonstrated capability as an individual contributor to build and maintain an internal developer platform that minimizes friction in building and deploying software. Experience building, deploying, and maintaining a set of software services written in Golang or Python. Passion for identifying opportunities to improve practices, explore solution options, and socializing ideas with colleagues toward fostering common cause. Desire to help colleagues use new tools and practices that reduce friction in deployment and operation of their services. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills, written and oral. What Makes You Stand Out: Pride in “being glue” and doing work behind the scenes to keep a team moving forward. Experience building and fostering adoption of observability tools, especially Prometheus and Grafana. Experience deploying software as containers to VMs and Kubernetes clusters, and familiarity with building reference implementations that support “golden paths” for software engineers.

Welcome to Planet. We believe in using space to help life on Earth. Planet designs, builds, and operates the largest constellation of imaging satellites in history. This constellation delivers an unprecedented dataset of empirical information via a revolutionary cloud-based platform to authoritative figures in commercial, environmental, and humanitarian sectors. We are both a space company and data company all rolled into one. Customers and users across the globe use Planet's data to develop new technologies, drive revenue, power research, and solve our world’s toughest obstacles. As we control every component of hardware design, manufacturing, data processing, and software engineering, our office is a truly inspiring mix of experts from a variety of domains. We have a people-centric approach toward culture and community and we strive to iterate in a way that puts our team members first and prepares our company for growth.
