Job Description

Welcome to Planet. We believe in using space to help life on Earth.

Planet designs, builds, and operates the largest constellation of imaging satellites in history. This constellation delivers an unprecedented dataset of empirical information via a revolutionary cloud-based platform to authoritative figures in commercial, environmental, and humanitarian sectors. We are both a space company and data company all rolled into one.

Customers and users across the globe use Planet's data to develop new technologies, drive revenue, power research, and solve our world’s toughest obstacles.

As we control every component of hardware design, manufacturing, data processing, and software engineering, our office is a truly inspiring mix of experts from a variety of domains.

We have a people-centric approach toward culture and community and we strive to iterate in a way that puts our team members first and prepares our company for growth. Join Planet and be a part of our mission to change the way people see the world.

Planet is headquartered in San Francisco, California, Earth.

About the Role:

The Workplace team is seeking a motivated teammate to support daily and large scale projects at Planet. Planet’s culture ties heavily to our physical office, our “mothership,”  and keeping it running smoothly will be your job! You will sit with the folks whose responsibilities are to address what our “new normal” will look like, including taking into consideration new health standard requirements and creatively re-imagining our home. In addition, you’ll have meaty projects to keep the facility in tip-top order, making certain our manufacturing floor (did I mention we put stuff in space!) remains safe and agile. The ideal candidate has a passion for efficient procedures and policies and a customer service heart. Your personal motto is to be “proactive and not reactive,” and you pride yourself on being composed in pressure situations.

  • Other duties as the role evolves

What You Bring:

  • Resourcefulness and scrappy attitude to get things done
  • Exceptional organizational skills
  • Welcoming and professional demeanor
  • Outstanding communication skills (to comprehend and give instructions)
  • G Suite prowess

What Makes You Stand Out:

  • An appreciation of humankind, including understanding ways to express and communicate with a variety of people. (We are all in this together)
  • Customer service heart with a thick skin and a strong backbone
  • You want to help make the office a better place, but not at the expense of mother earth or our principles
  • Willingness to ask questions, learn, and have a keen sense of curiosity

Benefits While Working at Planet:

  • Comprehensive Health Plan

Why we care so much about Belonging. 

We’re dedicated to helping the whole Planet, and to do that we must strive to represent all of it within each of our offices and on all of our teams. That’s why Planet is guided by an ultimate  north star of Belonging, dreaming big as we approach our ongoing work with diversity, equity and inclusion.  If this job intrigues you, but you’re thinking you might not have all the qualifications, please... do apply!  At Planet, we are looking for well-rounded people from around the world who can contribute to more ways than just what is listed in this job description.  We don’t just fill positions, we aspire to fulfill people’s careers, most excited about folks who are motivated by our underlying humanitarian efforts.  We are a few orbits around the sun before we get to where we want to be, so we hope you’re excited to come along for the ride.
