Who are we?

ICEYE is an International Earth Observation company headquartered in Finland with colleagues from over 57 countries. Our team is a tight-knit group of experts across many disciplines (e.g., engineering, software development, radar technology, etc.). We’re innovative, driven people who strive for excellence in everything we do. Teamwork, curiosity, and having fun are core values to Making the impossible possible in New Space. Join our team today!

ICEYE is building and operating its commercial constellation of small Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellites with SAR data available to customers. Our satellites acquire images of Earth at any time – even when it’s cloudy or dark – providing commercial and government partners with unmatched persistent monitoring capabilities. Information derived from our SAR images helps customers make data-driven decisions to address time-critical challenges in various sectors, such as maritime, disaster management, insurance, and finance.

What will you do in this role?

Step into the driver's seat and take ownership of the Flight Software that ultimately controls what ICEYE’s satellites are doing at any given time.

Your mission?

But it doesn't stop there. You'll be the bridge between customer demands and our product roadmap, translating feedback into actionable plans with precision. As the beacon of truth, you'll communicate the Flight Software roadmap clearly across the organization and collaborate with commercial teams in bid processes, showcasing ICEYE's capabilities directly to clients.

When it's time to face clients, you'll be the face of ICEYE in Flight Software related discussions, confidently discussing the Flight Software capabilities and roadmap, and representing our expertise. Behind the scenes, you'll motivate your team, ensuring their focus remains sharp as they drive execution forward. From reviewing delivery statuses to refining scopes, you'll be there every step of the way, ensuring excellence is achieved.
