What do we do?

ICEYE is building and operating its commercial constellation of small Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellites with SAR data available to customers. Our satellites acquire images of Earth at any time – even when it’s cloudy or dark – providing commercial and government partners with unmatched persistent monitoring capabilities.

What we offer:

  • A job that matters in a dynamic New Space environment with a scale-up approach

  • Phone subscription with iPhone of choice
  • Relocation support (i.e. flight tickets, accommodation, relocation agency support)
  • Time for self-development, research, training, conferences, or certification schemes
  • Finnish & English lessons
  • Inspiring and collaborating offices and silent workspaces enabling you to focus
  • A wide variety of best coffee, tea, snacks, and sweets to accompany your daily space mission
