About this job

Sapienza Consulting has a long heritage within the space sector of over 25 years. During this period we have been the leading provider of workforce solutions and have helped to scale many businesses and agencies throughout the world.

We have again added another exciting New Space venture that are based in the UK. Satellite Vu is a new UK based satellite startup with big ambitions. In under 18 months they will launch their first satellite to help find what’s hot and what’s not – literally. Their satellite will deliver thermal data to be analysed and delivered to customers in lightning quick time. The applications range from detecting plastic in the ocean to discovering those buildings that waste the most energy, and commercial derivatives of these techniques.

Based at WeWork in Aldwich, London, and thoroughly embracing remote working in these times, their team of data scientists, energy traders, GIS experts and tech entrepreneurs are focusing to bring this completely novel new dataset to the market and they are building up their team to do so. Satellite Vu is offering the opportunity for enthusiastic and motivated individuals to join their rapidly growing team. Satellite Vu is an equal opportunity employer.
