ICEYE is building and operating its commercial constellation of small Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellites with SAR data available to customers. Our satellites acquire images of Earth at any time – even when it’s cloudy or dark – providing commercial and government partners with unmatched persistent monitoring capabilities. Information derived from our SAR images helps customers make data-driven decisions to address time-critical challenges in various sectors, such as maritime, disaster management, insurance, and finance.
What are we looking for?
To support the company’s growth, we continue to scale our Communications Network department and are looking for a Staff Software Engineer to join us in the Helsinki area, Finland. ICEYE Communications Network is responsible for creating high reliability and high throughput communication between the ground systems and the satellites in ICEYE fleet globally. Various teams are working on contact planning and configuration, TM/TC chain, payload downlinking and infrastructure around it.
About the role?
As a Staff Software Engineer, you will help all teams in the department but especially focus on the Payload Downlink team. You act as a technical guidance for the teams who can promote correct software development conventions, drive encouraging culture and act as an example on technical and cultural improvements. You are also an experienced software engineer (especially with Go but also other languages) who creates, maintains and improves our payload downlinking system, which includes payload data receiving, decoding, decrypting service, data aggregation and monitoring around it.
You will be developing new features, as well as new software from scratch, to make modular and extensible systems, highly available and horizontally scalable. You will help design and implement all layers of it, and also provide APIs to internal stakeholders. Your target stack is for the most part Go services running on Kubernetes, and we do a lot of our own DevOps with infrastructure as code, be it Kubernetes manifests or Terraform infrastructure. We follow an agile process, aim at best practices, and are always willing to improve. You are acting as an example to thrive those conventions and best practices among the teams and have the courage to express your view. You have a deep understanding of our systems so you can act as a mentor to select the right path for your co-workers and drive effective teamwork.

What you need to succeed:
ICEYE is building and operating its own commercial constellation of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellites with SAR data already available to customers. These satellites can take images of Earth at any time – even when it’s cloudy or dark. Information derived from these images will help our customers understand the world better and help them make more intelligent decisions. We launched the world’s first SAR microsatellite in January 2018 and have raised $152M in financing to date.
We are a Finnish-based international New Space company with employees from roughly 40 countries and subsidiaries in the US, UK and Poland. Our team is a tight-knit group of experts from a range of areas including engineering, software development, and radar technology. We’re innovative, driven, and strive for excellence in everything we do. We don’t listen to people who say it can’t be done: we go and do it!
