Frontend Developer – 2

Company Details

We are decoding the planet pixel by pixel. Harnessing the power of satellites, we have developed a GEOINT platform - enabling teams to use intelligence from space using a simple API call. Our users query Kawa's platform to understand more about their area of interest, and the insights gathered are instantly useful with no further processing required. With our scalable infrastructure, we are on a mission to democratize space for all.

Kawa Space is building a software-driven geo-intelligence platform. Kawa employees enjoy the opportunity and benefits of working at an early-stage space startup, but in an environment much more akin to a later stage company given the experience of the founding team. The culture at Kawa encourages innovation, independent problem solving, and collaboration as we continue to mature our product in the ever-changing world of space intelligence.
