DevOps Engineer - Federal

Orbital Insight

Orbital Insight

Software Engineering
Arlington, VA, USA
Posted on Tuesday, March 7, 2023
Our mission at Orbital Insight is to understand what we’re doing on and to the Earth. We do this through our cloud-based SaaS platform, Orbital Insight Terrascope and on-premise offering, Terrabox, by ingesting geospatial data at massive scales, then applying state-of-art AI/ML and Data Science algorithms at scale.
In order to achieve this, the cloud infrastructure engineering team is motivated to provide a robust infrastructure layer between the platform and the cloud providers. This software layer is centered around Kubernetes to provide cloud agnostic feasibility and requires deployability on customers’ cloud environments.
Our work spans multiple areas including cloud agnostic infrastructure, networking, orchestration, distributed storage, and online/streaming processing. If you enjoy applying computer science fundamentals to real-world challenges and building scalable systems, you will fit right in.
In order to take our government business to the next level we are looking to hire a DevOps Engineer to join our Public Sector team. This DevOps 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.
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.
