Financial Services in Orbit

Trade in Space are at the forefront of the Global Fintech Sector.

We are developing new financial services products with data collected by satellites!
Founder, Robin Sampson's 10+ years as an expert in satellite technology has helped the business identify new ways of trading agriculture around the world.

From Glasgow to Guatemala, and the Indian Ocean, Trade in Space are harnessing the global reach of space to make peer-to-peer trading fairer and easier for farmers, financiers and wholesalers.



You’ll be producing business and technical research, insights and reports into our core target markets and customers. You’ll also have to look across the range of disruptive technologies that we use to make our products; satellite and drone data (what’s the right set for the right smart contract?); distributed ledger systems, and the crypto world (we need to separate the real technology from the noise). Communication with external bodies will be a core part of this role.

Software Developer

We’re looking for a software developer to join our team on a full-time basis. This role will involve supporting the development of technical requirements, and our core product, as well as working with satellite generated data (earth observation / imagery data, and narrow-band telecommunications data) to develop our product. We’re a new company, so you’ll also have a big part to play in the development of our technical product roadmap, and in building our team.
