Senior Software Engineer - Public Sector

Washington DC
In order to take our government business to the next level we are looking to hire a Senior Software Engineer to join our Public Sector team. This Senior Software Engineer will work on developing, adapting, and extending our commercial software products to fit the needs of our government customers.

At Orbital Insight, we work in cross-functional Agile teams, exploring how geospatial data, data science, AI/deep learning, computer vision, and intimacy with user needs can create entirely new products that give novel insights about what we are doing on and to the earth. Our pioneering products help people answer questions that cannot be answered today.

As a member of our technical staff, you’ll be working on our cloud-based systems that ingest a wide variety of data, run advanced machine learning algorithms on that data, use data science techniques to discover trends and detect anomalies, and allow users to ask questions and get answers – and do it all at scale with ever-increasing amounts of data.

We value experienced engineers who already have a breadth of experience in multiple areas -- databases, devops, machine learning, API design, and more -- and are eager to learn new areas and new technologies.

If all this sounds interesting to you, we’d love to meet you.

This position will be based in our Rosslyn, Virginia office but may require some work at customer sites in the DC area. Occasional travel to corporate headquarters in Palo Alto, California may be required.

This position requires an active TS/SCI clearance.
