About Pixxel

Pixxel is a space data company, building a constellation of hyperspectral earth imaging satellites and the analytical tools to mine insights from that data. The constellation is designed to provide global coverage every 24 hours, with the aim of detecting, monitoring, and predicting global phenomena.

Pixxel is on a mission to build a health monitor for the planet through a constellation of cutting-edge hyperspectral small satellites. This unique hyperspectral capability will be the key to unearthing underlying, unseen problems that are invisible to satellites in orbit today.

Job Description

Function: Product Management

At Pixxel, It’s not enough for us to just dump satellite images down from satellites to users. It’s important that we equip the end users with the tools they’d need to work with this imagery and any other data to derive insights in a seamless manner on a single platform without any hassle. Towards that goal, we are building “Aurora” - an all-inclusive platform for a wide range of tasks within the remote sensing and geospatial analytics domain.

The Aurora platform will offer a seamless user experience, empowering individuals and organizations to accomplish various tasks, from requesting satellite imagery across specific regions to importing and analyzing diverse datasets using advanced analytics and machine learning models to obtain valuable insights, alerts, and recommendations. Furthermore, the platform will facilitate tracking actions based on recommendations and monitor their impact.

As a Product Management Intern for Aurora, you will own multiple products and features across the funnel (Acquisition → Activation → Monetization → Retention → Referral).

In this role, you will be working cross-functionally with Pixxel's Engineering Team (Software Engineers, Cloud Engineers), Machine Learning Engineers, Geospatial Analysts, Satellite Team and Pixxel's commercialisation (Sales, Marketing, Customer Success) team on the product roadmap.
