This will involve research, planning and documenting new processing methods, as well as collaboration with our software team to implement these novel behaviours as part of our processing automation pipeline.

Some level of software development experience is expected, conventional python scripting is sufficient as a baseline and additional software development training will be available for interested applicants.

Applicants should be enthusiastic about space and spatial technologies and willing to learn about fields which leverage them to understand customer requirements and how they can be served.
