Streamline and automate satellite design, test, and operations.
Architect, automate, test, deploy, and maintain a well-designed and highly available cloud infrastructure in AWS GovCloud with a focus on security and compliance for SOC2, NIST 800-171, NIST 800-53, and FedRAMP Medium controls.
You will own the cloud infrastructure and its direction. You will help architect secure ingress and egress to customer and vendor data centers in a multi and single-tenant environment. As the team is developing, you will also provide best practices for availability, latency, and performance of services.
Some of your responsibilities will include incident management, supporting a 24/7 on call rotation, and technical troubleshooting of complex enterprise systems. Ideally the system you create alleviates the necessity for action.
You will be a part of the engineering team of frontend and backend engineers working in an Agile Scrum environment.
We have a [rare] team of six technical co-founders and you will be a part of the first wave of hires! You can expect the process to take 2-3 weeks and to hopefully be extended an offer within a month of screening. Along the way you will get to meet the entire team because it’s not only important what you build but who you build it with. The interviews will be a mix of technical and culture (behavioral) questions, small coding challenges, and we will ask to talk with two references that you have worked with in the last 5 years.
Focus: 50% technical, 50% cultural Interviewers: 1 (Nate)
Someone drew the short straw of screening all candidates and who better than the co-founder who qualifies sales leads – our CEO Nate! Expect him to sell you…on Quindar. Don’t let that fool you, he is technical. The format for this screening call will be based on your resume.
Focus: 75% technical, 25% cultural Interviewers: 2 (Sunny & Shai)
Expect to be interviewed on technical concepts and to write some pseudo-code. They are 100% software engineers so you will work with them every day. Get to know them. Sunny leads product and Shai knows the latest technology before it’s even released to the public.
Focus: 75% technical, 25% cultural Interviewers: 2 (Zach & Dave/Matt)
More technical questions and more pseudo-code. Zach is our engineering lead and in charge of code reviews and managing technical debt. Dave/Matt split their time between software architecture, business, and writing code.
Interviewers: 1 (Nate)
While Nate will ask for the contact information of two references you have worked within the last 5 years, you will work on a capped 1-hour coding/design challenge offline.
Focus: 100% cultural Interviewers: 2 (Nate & Dave/Matt)
So, you made it this far? Congrats! You will meet the last co-founder and we will ask any outstanding questions and so should you!
Have you seen Apollo 13, The Martian, or Armageddon and recall all of the NASA engineers in a room with a bunch of monitors? Quindar is digitizing that away. Satellites are flying computers and we are revolutionizing the future of spacecraft operations by becoming the IT for space.
Our team has worked at OneWeb, Lockheed Martin, Iridium, Boeing, Orbital Sciences, and RedHat. We've operated dozens of satellites, worked on broadband and earth observation constellations, and serviced commercial and government users. We are using lessons learned from our previous aerospace and startup experiences to revolutionize the space industry and enable access to space without being an expert.
