About Capella Space: 

Capella is at the forefront of making vital information about our world accessible in a timely manner. We’re leveraging proven technologies and building new capabilities to create a constellation of SAR satellites that can collect information about any spot on the planet within an hour. 

At Capella you’ll work in a collaborative team environment, alongside smart people with a history of space mission success. No prior space experience is needed—we’re looking for people excited about tackling seemingly impossible challenges, learning new skills and concepts, and helping each other achieve success. 

Our mission and our products are meant to understand the whole world and help everyone in it, regardless of race, creed, or any other distinction. We believe in a diverse and inclusive workplace, and we encourage all people to join our team and bring their unique perspective to help make us stronger. 

We value diversity at Capella and welcome applications from those who are traditionally underrepresented in tech. If you like the sound of this position, but are not sure if you are the perfect fit, please apply! 

About the Role: 

As a Cloud Network Engineer at Capella, you will help us build new network segments, improve traffic and data flow in existing ones, and develop new approaches to existing, unsolved, challenges. 

You will operate at all levels within the network stack at Capella, including Firewall policy management, Cloud-native network design and implementation (e.g. AWS VPC, Security Groups, etc.), inter-environment routing and connectivity (e.g. AWS Transit Gateway), and more! You’re an independent problem solver that seeks out ways to make our systems better, learns best practices, and wants to help build out the infrastructure that enables our mission. As part of the SecOps team, you’ll interact daily with other infrastructure teams, software engineers, and platform engineers to develop and maintain a highly performant and secure cloud network. 

We expect all SecOps team members to work on a variety of problems across the Security Operations space, be familiar with industry security practices, and be capable of incorporating secure design into the foundational architecture of all systems. 

This position is available in San Francisco, CA, Boulder, CO, or Remote (US).
