Intelligence Analyst


Spaceflight Industries
Headquarters: Herndon, VA

Here at BlackSky Geospatial, we are building the premier global intelligence platform. Our Platform delivers timely, relevant, and actionable information allowing our customers to make swift and informed decisions.

As a member of our analytic team, you will combine geospatial and open source content and analysis techniques to drive the content coming out of our platform. Successful candidates will have experience with geospatial analysis, open-source (OSINT) analysis, data discovery and management, data exploitation, and direct interaction with customers.

As a young company, we offer a lot of flexibility and opportunity to get involved in multiple projects and pursue things you’re interested in. We don't need you to be the best at everything, but expect that you will never settle for not-knowing, will take pride in your work, and never turn on career cruise control.

The role:
  • Research and find geospatial content from both commercial and open sources. Perform geospatial analysis on content from multiple open sources to produce customer-ready content
  • Demonstrate platform capabilities and train new users
  • Work with the team to give feedback on data sources, software output, and whatever else is needed
  • Exploit news, reports, and geospatial layers generating intelligence summaries and presentations populating reporting databases
Who you are:
  • An intelligence analyst with some experience (2-9 years) and a current TS//SCI clearance. You have worked with geospatial intelligence in some capacity, but preferably have experience in other INTs or all-source work as well. You know your way around at least a couple analytic tools (ESRI, RemoteView, SOCET GXP, CartoDB, QGIS, ANB, Palantir, etc.) but aren’t afraid to learn others.
  • You know how to find applicable/necessary information, analyze it, and present results in accordance with accepted analytic standards.
  • Self-motivated. We are not a “top-down directive” organization; while there is leadership and guidance, we expect everyone to learn how they can contribute and take an active role in understanding key objectives and making things happen.
  • Self-taught learner. You’re always up for learning new things, and are able to identify areas you’d like to know more about. We encourage team learning sessions so everyone can benefit from things you’ve learned.
Bonus Points:
  • Degree, Certificate/certification or completion of military training courses in geospatial analysis, imagery analysis, GIS, or related area
  • Foreign language fluency
