DevOps Engineer (SF)

San Francisco
Full time
Loft Orbital’s mission is to make space simple for our customers. We operate satellites and we fly customer payloads onboard, as a service. We are redefining how businesses and governments access space and use it to perform their critical missions. 
Loft’s customers span the entire space industry, from start-ups to large companies and government agencies. Our standard interfacing and mission operations products enable us to fly any kind of payload, such as imagers, RF systems, scientific experiments, national security missions, in-orbit demonstrations, and weather and climate sensors. 
We are hiring a DevOps Engineer to help us build Cockpit, our autonomous satellite control software. We are building Cockpit to operate a diverse constellation of multi-sensor satellites. Our first launch is this year with many more already on the books to follow - join us to build the new standard of spacecraft operations!
