Software Engineer (Backend)

EVONA have exclusively partnered with a SaaS start-up ushering in a groundbreaking era in spacecraft operations as they develop a unique monitoring and analytics platform.

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

Breaking stuff. We need a software engineer to focus on building and automating tests. A top candidate will be able to fix bugs of currently deployed software. This role is a mix of software engineering and testing. The unique part of this role does not lie within writing unit or integration tests but rather mirroring customer use cases – such as testing our satellite tracking, antenna reservation, or satellite command and control services. Your mission will be to simulate dozens of satellites running operations while also being chaos monkey so our system can remain resilient. Don’t worry, you do not have to be an aerospace expert – satellites are just flying computers that you see every 90 minutes. Additionally, you will oversee testing operational recovery procedures. Day to day, you will be a part of the engineering team of frontend and backend engineers working in an Agile Scrum environment.

Front End Engineer (React)

EVONA have exclusively partnered with a SaaS start-up ushering in a groundbreaking era in spacecraft operations as they develop a unique monitoring and analytics platform.

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

Don’t make me think. We are looking for a candidate who can simplify a complex user workflow. We need a candidate that can solve customer pain points from the frontend and is not afraid to talk to users. Our challenge to you is to design and implement our frontend so the user needs virtually no product training and can get there in 2 clicks or less.

The super cool part? You are creating the interface for users to design, test, and operate hundreds of satellites. Whether they want to take pictures, beam broadband/cellular, or dock with another satellite – this is the interface they will use. That giant screen in NASA mission operations photos? That could be yours.

You’ll be working alongside another frontend developer in the engineering team that also includes backend and platform developers where we collaborate daily in an Agile Scrum environment.

Tech Skills

  • Experience writing reusable React components in Typescript
  • Experience with React frameworks like Next.js, Refine (or Blitz.js / RedwoodJS)
