Off-cycle Internship

Data•San Francisco


  • Join Planet's Edge Compute Team as an Edge Compute Spacecraft Intern! We conduct tech demos and operational constellations and we're designing, manufacturing and launching record-breaking numbers of spacecraft. As an intern and under the mentorship of experienced professionals, you will be an integral part of our design process, prototyping and testing edge compute modules and algorithms for processing data onboard satellites. 
  • This is a fantastic opportunity to learn, grow, and engage with seasoned Planeteers from teams such as the analytics machine learning team and work to co-develop edge computing solutions for Planet’s next generation of spacecraft.


  • Experience with computer vision, machine learning, and deep learning-based approaches
  • Proven ability deploying algorithms and solutions to solve real-world problems in computationally constrained environments
  • Proficiency in C++, Python, or related tools and system SW architecture
  • MS or PhD in EE/CS/Physics
  • What Makes You Stand Out:
  • Experience managing and doing GPU-based computing on large data sets
  • Experience with machine learning on earth observation data sets
  • EAR/ITAR Requirements:
  • This position requires access to export-controlled technology, and as such, and in accordance to applicable law, employment is only open to US citizens, US nationals, lawful permanent residents of the US or persons admitted to the US as an asylee or refugee.
