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. Our fleet of +100 orbiting spacecraft deliver an unprecedented firehose of imagery that captures the entire Earth’s landmass nearly every day at 3m/pixel resolution. This combination of temporal frequency, spatial resolution and global coverage represents a groundbreaking technological advancement that enables new kinds of data analytics and powers solutions to many global-scale problems.
We are both a space company and a software & analytics company, all rolled into one. If you are passionate about space and machine learning, Planet is the right choice. Reasons to join us include:
- You will work with a geospatial dataset that is new to humankind. Imagery of the entire globe, every day. Think of the possibilities.
- You will work on cutting-edge applications of deep learning on remote sensing.
- You will build machine learning products that get served at a global scale.
- You will work in a dynamic, talented and inclusive work environment.
- All departments are in the same building. You sit together and learn from teams like spacecraft, mission control and launch.
- You get to watch several rocket launches per year, sometimes in person.
In the Analytics Engineering team, we are focused on developing core and customer-facing intelligence products that will change how our industry measures global activity. For example, we can build systems that detect deforestation within a few days from occurring, anywhere in the world. Our customers come from a range of sectors, including commercial, environmental and humanitarian.
We have a strong machine learning team and are looking for talented engineers with applied product experience to join us. If you are a team player, focused on product delivery, and are excited about deep learning, computer vision or spatio-temporal analytics, this would be a great fit for you.
