Continuum was founded on the belief that we can help enable any company to be a space company.  If we can achieve this we can reduce the cost of deploying and managing space assets; so, humanity can benefit from the rich observation data that space will offer back on earth.  We are building a Space-as-a-Service (SpaaS) platform.  


We are looking for a talented, creative and driven full stack software engineer with a proven track record developing across a full application stack to support mission design.  In this role, you will define, design and build the software stack for our SpaaS platform.

Collaboration with different teams and projects leveraging Continuum IP, as well as, supporting Continuum’s Tool Kit (CTK) cloud system will be required. This includes our client network plus all hardware, software, and enterprise applications.

With a focus on space mission solutions, design tools, and flight operation systems integration, you will be instrumental in moving all of Continuum’s businesses forward.  If you seek a fast-paced, dynamic environment; if you thrive on solving difficult, fuzzy problems where resolutions have high impact; if you love the challenge of building something from the ground up, then this position might be your next career step.
