Backend Product Engineer, Python

212 Elm St
Somerville, MA 02144

At TellusLabs, our goal is to provide insights from satellite imagery that will help solve the biggest problems facing society. How will we feed a rapidly growing global population? How will we manage our increasingly limited water resources? How can we best manage our land and forest resources in an era of climate change? The answers to these pressing questions can be obtained through the innovative use of satellite imagery and Earth data, and the private sector has to be part of the solution. We aim to be a big part of that story. TellusLabs thrives thanks to an interdisciplinary approach that combines, machine learning, statistics, remote sensing, and geospatial sciences. We are always looking for people who share our curiosity and our conviction.

As a Software Engineer at TellusLabs, you will be responsible for creating a platform for transforming massive amounts of data from satellites above the earth and sources on the ground into usable, operational insights for solving real-world problems.  We are building a data platform that unlocks the power of satellite imagery for our data science team, and a machine learning platform that allows us to quickly build powerful models based on our experience creating scientifically meaningful features from that data.  You will be responsible for building and extending the API that our clients use to access data and insights, and that powers Kernel, our web framework that presents the output of our best-in-class crop forecasting models alongside contextual insights and data visualization.

We're looking for:

  • Excellent python skills & real world experience building production quality, testable, deployable software
  • Experience with working with SQL (esp. postgres)
  • Experience building APIs and API design (esp. w/ flask)
  • Experience with deploying software on AWS

It's a bonus if you have experience with or interest in:

  • JavaScript & vue.js (our front-end stack)
  • Geospatial datasets or GIS systems
  • Data visualization
  • Swagger/OpenAPI specification
  • Machine learning & statistics
  • Cloud DevOps (AWS)

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
