Rebel Space Technologies is seeking a talented and experienced Senior Software Engineer to join our team.

Senior Software Engineer (Data Platform):

At Rebel Space, our mission is to protect critical space infrastructure through enhanced observability and space system cybersecurity. We believe that as space infrastructure expands, it will be increasingly difficult to secure and monitor these systems against critical failures or evolving cyber threats. To address this, we are building software that empowers developers and operators to rigorously evaluate and secure their systems from conception through to operations. We supercharge the way space infrastructure is tested, monitored, and secured, ensuring systems are safeguarded in an increasingly complex space environment. Join us in building the space security infrastructure of the future.

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will be a key member of our engineering team. You will be responsible for architecting and implementing software infrastructure to support Rebel Space observability and cybersecurity solutions, including developing advanced telemetry collection and data processing capabilities to monitor space systems data. This role combines technical leadership, project management, and hands-on development to push the boundaries of space system security and observability.

Prior aerospace experience is not required, we look for talented and motivated individuals who demonstrate a willingness to collaborate and learn while solving challenging problems!
