HR Analyst (Contractor)

Orbital Insight is currently seeking an HR Analyst. The ideal candidate for the Part-Time HR analyst position (6 months contract, 20 hours/week) has an incredible attention to detail and loves creating seamless and efficient systems for everything, from open enrollment to HRIS maintenance to processing HR data. You enjoy diving into details and making things better (which happens to be one of our core values)!

The world is a very big place. With a single photograph of Earth, like the famous “Blue Marble” from Apollo 17, the entire world can fit on a computer screen. However, with this image you would not be able to see much detail. To see the Earth and all of its rich features, you would need a lot more images. In fact it would take over 500 million images just to observe the land area of Earth at 1 meter pixel resolution.

In order to see detail and work at scale, we use computer vision and machine learning. Using convolutional neural networks, we have counted over 3 billion cars across global roads and parking lots, analyzing commercial patterns as well as city growth and development. Our global energy product uses computer vision to map floating roof oil tanks and measure the global volumes of crude oil. With this product, we were able to show that China has 200 million barrels of oil storage capacity that was unknown even to the trading community. Other projects include tracking rates of deforestation, measuring poverty levels around the globe, monitoring construction rates of new roads and buildings, and predicting crop yields. This is still the beginning of our mission to understand the Earth.

This position will be based in Palo Alto, CA.
