Continuum was founded on the belief that we can help enable any company to be a space company.  If we can achieve this we can reduce the cost of deploying and managing space assets; so, humanity can benefit from the rich observation data that space will offer back on earth.  We are building a Space-as-a-Service (SpaaS) platform.


As a Cloud Systems Architect, you will have the opportunity to design, deploy, and scale solutions for complex deployments in cloud environments.  You will participate in architecture reviews of complex IAAS, PAAS, and SAAS solutions and usage by the client. You will provide input on proper deployment of cloud services and applications, and design and deploy data ingestion, storage, and analytic solutions using distributed technologies at scale.
