Job Description

Please review the job details below.

Maxar is currently seeking Mid-level and Senior Software Developers to join our Product Engineering team. Ideally we're looking for candidates who are within commuting distance to Westminster as access to our secured facility will be needed, however, we are open to remote locations within the U.S. for the right person.

If you enjoy working collaboratively to encode complex cloud native services supporting world class satellite operations this would be an excellent opportunity for you to explore. We encounter difficult problems in our software domains, and we strive to solve them elegantly. You and your teammates will be responsible for the full development cycle of our suite of AWS microservices. Our services transform data from our world leading constellation of satellites into amazing products. You will fill an important role on a team that values collaboration, a gritty can-do attitude and continual learning. An ideal candidate will love to practice world-class software engineering disciplines and bring a quality first mindset to work every day. We embrace a culture where good ideas can come from anywhere and we focus on succeeding as a team. Maxar provides an opportunity to work in a vibrant, mature Agile environment. We embrace transparency and relish feedback loops that drive continuous improvement. We are a development partner with AWS and embrace cloud native solutions where they make sense for our business.

At Maxar, we realize that "Space is Cool". From manufacturing and flying satellites, to producing image products that can be seen in everyday apps like Google Maps to contributing earth imagery to stop slavery in the fishing industry. We don't create typical software and we aren't solving the same old problems that a hundred other companies are solving. We make a difference in the world, and we always seek to harness our capabilities For A Better World. Opportunities and growth are abundant at Maxar and we'd love to have you join our team.

Your Career

We live Maxar's core values every day. Three of those values, "You Matter"; "We Act Like Owners"; and "We Stay Curious", create a backdrop where your growth, success and fulfillment are foundational elements to everything we do. We provide amazing resources to support learning and we set aside time for dedicated professional development, conference attendance, corporate partner and industry training, peer group collaboration, hackathons, as well as paid certifications and education reimbursement. We will work with you to define a career path that takes you where you want to go.
