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.

SRE members play an important role in shaping the engineering culture and vision for Spire's Space Program as we move into new realms of more sophisticated, more reliable, and faster evolving satellite operations and end user products. We are responsible for defining, promoting, and in some cases building and operating the tools that power software delivery and operations  across our virtual and bare metal assets. Come support our mission to deliver a world class experience to Space Program developers and shape the future of space operations.

Responsibilities include:

  • Architectural leadership and mentorship in regards to operability and engineering velocity
  • Develop and support our existing build, test and continuous integration infrastructure for AWS ground systems, satellites, and embedded boards
  • Develop and support network infrastructure provisioning (terraform, ansible, etc)
  • Develop internal services to improve efficiency across the software development lifecycle for the engineering organization
  • Work closely with other engineering teams to evangelize and support SRE systems, tooling, and culture.
  • Meet or exceed SLAs consistently
  • Maintain good ticket performance and satisfaction

Basic Qualifications:

  • 4+ years experience in software engineering
  • Computer science degree or equivalent work experience
  • Experience with compiled languages and interpreted languages 

Preferred Qualifications / Experience:

  • Proficiency with one or more of the following: Python, Ruby, Go, Java or shell scripting
  • Experience with configuration management (Puppet/Ansible/Chef) and infrastructure as code (terraform/cloudformation).
  • Experience with AWS
  • Experience with container orchestration (Kubernetes, ECS, Mesos/Marathon)
  • Experience with Continuous delivery tooling and methodologies 

Cultural traits we’re looking for:

 

  • Can articulate your ideas well in both spoken and written form
  • Intimately know how computer systems interact
  • Leverage the best tools for the task
  • Balancing tactical and strategic decisions for overall mission success
  • Understand the value of reducing procedural and technical complexity
  • Feel strongly about technological and operational performance 

What makes Spire unique:

  • Contribute to data products that have a strong social impact: weather monitoring, ship and aircraft tracking, and more.
  • Join a team that is unusually deep and broad: backend web services, distributed and embedded systems, electrical and mechanical engineering, RF, DSP, AI/ML, etc.
  • It’s a space program. Write code that runs on the ground and in orbit.
  • You get to work on unique and challenging technical problems that are different from your average web app.

Spire is Global and our success draws upon the diverse viewpoints, skills and experiences of our employees. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender identity or veteran status.
