Job Description
Software Engineer (Space Industry)

Overview

Infostellar connects satellite operators to their spacecraft through a global network of ground stations.  Our StellarStation platform revolutionises the ground-services segment of the space industry by enabling satellite operators to access a diverse and ever-increasing network of antenna sites through a single cloud based API interface.   This allows operators to add ground stations to support their missions in a simple and predictable and scalable manner.
