About the Position:
Spaceflight Industries seeks an Image Processing Engineer to develop the tools and processes to autonomously characterize, monitor, and improve the performance of the on-orbit imaging systems in the BlackSky constellation.
As a member of the Imaging group, the Image Processing Engineer is instrumental in delivering imagery products that power our geospatial knowledge engine. BlackSky is deploying a constellation of high-resolution Earth imaging satellites that together provide near real-time data on an ever-changing world. Intra-constellation normalization and a thorough understanding of our imaging systems are therefore critical to the BlackSky mission.
The Image Processing Engineer will own the development of the tools and processes to characterize, monitor, and improve the on-orbit performance of BlackSky imaging systems. Because the on-orbit performance depends strongly on the design of the imaging system, the Image Processing Engineer will also support the design and ground testing of the imaging system. Furthermore, the Image Processing Engineer will use her or his knowledge of the imaging system to enhance and expand the portfolio of BlackSky imagery products.
Spaceflight Industries is a fast-growing, venture-backed, new-space company that requires experienced, creative, and positive, goal-oriented leaders who enjoy working in agile and dynamic environments. The company has two core missions. First, enabling timely and affordable access to space. And second, enabling timely and affordable understanding of our planet. We combine a big data platform, aerospace engineering, manufacturing, and launch services into a vertically integrated space technology company that is well-positioned to change market dynamics. We are seeking high-performing individuals motivated by challenge and ready to play a significant role in scaling our fast-growing company.
