DevOps & Software Engineer

Delft, Netherlands

For our daughter company Orbital Eye, we are currently looking for an Earth Observation DevOps & Software Engineer located in Delft.

We at Orbital Eye are passionate about the integration of Earth Observation (EO) technology into sustainable monitoring solutions for a wide variety of EO-based processes and activities. 

Our flagship product CoSMiC-EYE is an EO-based subscription service for pipeline operators to monitor and manage activities like excavations and construction along their assets, to reduce the risk of accidental damage. For this we leverage the unique EO capabilities of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellites, supplemented with medium and high-resolution data from multispectral (MS) and optical satellites. Here SAR is mainly used to detect activities while MS and optical satellite data enhance our capabilities to filter and classify the activities detected and report our customers only those activities that are of interest.
