UrtheCast Corp. is a Vancouver-based technology company that serves the rapidly evolving geospatial and geoanalytics markets with a wide range of information-rich products and services. UrtheCast is growing and is shaping the future of earth observation. We provide the world with next-generation Earth Observation data using our growing system of space-based sensors. Our Crew members consider themselves agents of change as they work to provide Earth imagery and video data that enables heightened geospatial analysis. With that data, we build our products and services to help everyone — citizens, businesses, and governments alike — make advances in areas ranging from high-tech precision agriculture and forestry resource management, to the monitoring of humanitarian relief efforts. This type of large-scale change requires near-constant technological iteration and innovation, so UrtheCast continues to initiate unprecedented engineering programs like its planned UrtheDaily™ and OptiSAR™ constellations. Every day, we push the limits of what’s possible in space-based Earth Observation.
We are currently seeking an Embedded Software Engineer (Coop) for a 4 month coop work term starting in January 2018.
As an UrtheCast Embedded Software Engineer (Coop), you will be responsible for supporting the development and testing of satellite real-time onboard planning prototype software. The software will generate an optimal schedule to task the satellite to acquire imagery, taking into account complex system and resource constraints. The latter portion of the coop term will be assigned to advancing image processing tools for displaying earth observation imagery for maritime surveillance purposes.
