Space Program Engineer at Spire Global.
Spire Global is a space-to-cloud analytics company that owns and operates the largest multi-purpose constellation of satellites. Its proprietary data and algorithms provide the most advanced maritime, aviation, and weather tracking in the world. In addition to its constellation, Spire’s data infrastructure includes a global ground station network and 24/7 operations that provide real-time global coverage of every point on Earth.
Spire’s Space Services API team develops the interfaces used by our customers to design, test, deploy and operate space-based software applications. In some cases these applications run on standard Spire hardware, and in some cases on hosted payloads custom-designed by us or our customers.
As a software engineer on the Space Services APIs team, I help develop and maintain our customer facing APIs both on the satellite and on the ground. This currently includes interfacing with our disruption tolerant networking stack for both space to ground and inter-satellite links, our satellite bus and ground services that allow customers to task their satellite payloads and upload code and configuration.
