Our mission is to understand what we're doing on, & to, Earth. This includes all of the economic & social trends impacting us. In order to do that we are building the best data science team in the world to generate actionable intelligence from millions of satellite & aerial images from a variety of different sensors, as well as other sources of geospatial data. Current members of our data science team come from backgrounds including evolutionary biology, geophysics, neuroscience, & astrophysics.
We are data detectives & our job is difficult because although we have Big Data, we exist in a persistent state of spatio-temporal data starvation. The work is fast-paced, highly iterative, & continuously trading off between what works & what's best. The actual data analysis typically goes from computer vision to mathematical modeling to validation with rigorous testing at every step of the way.
Along with our team of data scientists, you'll work with product managers, sales, & software engineers to build data-driven products & solutions. If you enjoy working with data to build products & solve hard problems in creative ways, you will fit right in.
