About the role:
As an image processing engineer, you will join the team developing advanced algorithms and software that will generate petabytes of imagery. You will help us develop world-class pan-sharpening, automatic color and contrast enhancement and white balance, color artifact reduction, and atmospheric correction. You will also help transition these algorithms into production-grade software in C/C++ in a Linux environment to run within Skybox's high-performance computing infrastructure.
You have background in image processing, but you don't need experience with satellite imagery or remote sensing. You're a strong C/C++ programmer, and have experience in the full algorithm life cycle from research to deployment and support. You enjoy working in a small company environment where things happen quickly and everybody gets their time in the critical path.
