Skybox Imaging is seeking strong software engineers with image processing expertise to build systems that accept terabytes of satellite image data from our micro imaging satellites and transform the raw data into geospatial images and derived information products. |
You will be responsible for designing and implementing advanced image processing algorithms including image reconstruction, deconvolution, denoising, color artifact reduction, automatic contrast enahcement and white balance. You will also transition these algorithms into production-grade software in C/C++ in a Linux environment.
You have background in image processing, but you don°t need experience with satellite imagery or remote sensing. You°re a strong C/C++ programmer, and have experience developing, deploying and supporting software products. You enjoy working in a small company environment, where communication flows quickly and informally, priorities change rapidly, and there°s a constant sense of urgency.
Skills and Experience:
- M.S. or higher in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or equivalent
- Excellent C/C++ development skills, ideally in a Linux environment.
- Minimum of 3 years of experience in image processing with a focus on automatic contrast enhancement, white balance, and or demosaicking
- Experience with multithreaded programming environments or GPUs is a plus.
- Proficiency in scripting languages such as Matlab, Python, etc. is desired.
- Must be US citizen or permanent resident.
Skybox is designing, developing, manufacturing and operating the world°s first coordinated constellation of microsatellites to deliver high-resolution imagery of any spot on earth multiple times per day. We are passionate about bringing Moore ’s Law to space via disruptive microsatellite technology, rapid development cycles and a scalable web-based delivery platform for collecting, analyzing and understanding daily activity across our planet.
Founded at Stanford in 2009 and funded by leading investors such as Khosla Ventures and Bessemer Venture Partners, the heart of Skybox is our team and our technology. Skybox is a family of 80+ talented internet and aerospace professionals, based in Mountain View, CA. We are seeking exceptional individuals to build out our company°s vision, as we approach the launch date of our first satellite, SkySat-1, later this year. The unambitious need not apply.
