Planet’s Search team is developing systems to store and access imagery from our constellation of satellites. These systems are primarily responsible for providing external customer access to the continuous feed of imagery we receive from the satellites.
This role will be responsible for the infrastructure and software making up our search, storage and indexing layer providing access to imagery for our consumers. Our tech stack is Go, Python, Elasticsearch, BigTable, Postgres, and Kubernetes running on Google’s Cloud. Your contributions will enable any number of new techniques to understand our changing world.
The Search team is highly distributed and you will thrive in an environment of remote work and asynchronous communication. You’re expected to have strong written communication skills and be able to develop working relationships with coworkers in locations across several time zones.
