Software Engineer, Backend -satellite IoT system

Amsterdam Competitive Permanent

This one is a real challenge, you'll want to keep reading. The challenge " Building the brains of the IoT system:

They need your help and the ultimate goal is to build a communication system that changes the world. They deliver connectivity to sensor systems (IoT) with a global satellite footprint. It's low power and low cost so we enable use cases that would not be possible otherwise, because of connectivity issues.  

This enables global climate monitoring, precision farming, marine life protection and many other ways to improve life on earth. 

We control the whole supply chain of software in the system, from the firmware of the modems on the ground to the satellite onboard computers and the backend where all the data is processed. This means we have a broad spectrum of environments. They run on bare metal, FreeRTOS or Linux and implement in C, C++, Golang, Kotlin/Java, Python, and Javascript.

You will be focusing on the data once it's on the ground; data processing, customer APIs and the frontend, and tools to help us manage the infrastructure and network. This may include simulating satellite paths over devices on the planet, optimizing database queries or streaming processes handling large amounts of data, or building API features for customers.

  • A Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, or equivalent. 
  • At least 3 years of experience as a software engineer. 
  • Experience with statically typed programming languages.
