SkyWatch is on a mission to make Earth-observation data accessible to the world. Hundreds of trillions of pixels of our planet are captured from space every day. With new applications for this data being discovered constantly, the demand for satellite imagery across many industries is increasing. However, the current process for purchasing satellite imagery is extremely time-consuming and tedious. We experienced this problem first hand while working to predict crop yields by monitoring surface-level ozone movement. After weeks of trying to find the right data, we decided to come up with our own solution.
Utilizing our past experience in building satellite data aggregation software, our team is developing a robust API which allows users to discover and access the world’s remote sensing datasets. We are making it easier than ever to perform geospatial analysis by creating one source for the datasets used. Our goal is to become the leading provider of data and intelligence from space.
Our team comprises of software developers, engineers, and armchair astrophysicists. We are also: global winners of the 2014 NASA International Space Apps Challenge; Google for Entrepreneurs alumni; Lead Organizer of NASA Space Apps Waterloo; members of the Canadian Space Commerce Association; members of the International Astronomical Union’s Working Group on Time-Domain Astronomy; and founding supporters and directors of MaxQ, Canada’s first accelerator focused on space startups.
Our company is committed to providing equal employment opportunity and providing a work environment that is free of discrimination and harassment. We strive to offer competitive salaries and compensation. We're also very flexible and open to filling the unique needs of our employees.
