About the Company 

We believe in the power and importance of infrastructure. Every few decades a major inflection point in the world’s infrastructure progresses humanity forward. Vanderbilt and the railroads, Edison and the electrical grid, Eisenhower and the highways, and now Airspace Link’s low altitude digital infrastructure. As a high growth software and data startup based out of Detroit, offering Hybrid and fully Remote work options, we focus on creating a place where people of all different backgrounds can thrive as engineers, data scientists, creative thinkers, and passionate innovators. Our vision is to create a world where the safe integration of drones fuels human progress, advancing social equity, the environment, and the economy.  

What’s the Opportunity? 

As part of our exciting expansion plans, we have a fantastic opportunity for Geospatial Analytics Engineers to join our rapidly growing data team. You would be part of the team scripting complex analytical functions and services that leverage diverse geospatial data to generate insights and support Airspace Link’s data and software products.
At Airspace Link, we work with huge amounts of diverse data, so with that in mind, we are looking for someone who is more 'technical' than an analyst, with both Geo and Non-Geo data experience. We use the Esri tech stack, which is used throughout the business to utilize the data insights. It's important for us that you have significant experience with data modelling that will result in a smoother process throughout Airspace Link when making data-based decisions.
We understand that working with data such as this can be hard work and sometimes be messy, but it's also exceptionally fund, and we are excited to find the right person to take on the challenge.
