Company Origins

The technology behind the tiny computing components needed for smartphones also makes it possible to build smaller satellites that are also faster and easier to launch. But when these satellites first sent millions of detailed images from space, nobody had the software to make sense of them. Orbital Insight was born out of this need. Now, satellite images are more than just beautiful pictures, they are a source of cutting-edge insights about our changing world. Will the rest be history?

Company Culture

We are on a quest to find truth and transparency in the growing supply of satellite images. Our mission is to transcend individual markets to create a new, accurate, and high-resolution image of how the world works. Are you in?

Transparency
We’re lifting the veil on things that can’t be seen with the naked eye. We’re introducing transparency that will help predict and prevent drastic price shifts; insure against crop destruction; rapidly identify climate change trends; track shortcomings in supply chains; and enable other positive global changes. We’re working towards a better world.

Data Quality
We’re in the business of data quality. We hire highly skilled engineers and PhDs who take a rigorous and scientific approach to data because we care deeply about giving people around the world access to transparent information they can rely on: no more manual counting subject to problems of scale and human error.

Big Picture
Our ideas are limitless and we’ve only just begun building. The beauty of the macroscope is that with each new idea, iteration, and piece of code, we create a more precise view of the modern world. Our team operates the same way. We thrive off the big ideas and cutting-edge possibilities. No matter who comes up with it, the best idea wins, always.

Help us discover more about our world

We've imagined so many ways data can better inform the world and only scratched the surface of what we can do. We seek creative types who aren't intimidated by the extraordinary. There's a lot of work to do and we're up for the challenge. Are you?
