Thanks to the SewerMapper, there is no need for a worker to go down the manhole anymore.

Worldwide, public sewers are in bad shape because of age and need to be inventoried and repaired. Methods to do this are still very analog and include manual labour in confined spaces. That’s why SpacePal is developing the most efficient and high-tech tools for the inspection and renovation companies to do what they do, better and faster. The SewerMapper is a device that lowers automatically into sewer manholes, and locates, orientates, measures and inspects the manhole by the push of a button; no more workers going ‘down the drain’: only open the cover! SpacePal has gone through different prototypes, has first partners/distributor interests in the EU market, raised seed capital and kicked off with international pilot projects.
You are the leading engineer with regards to the software part of the SewerMapper system. A combination of backend development (Python) and some GUI on the cloud, with a touch of research (implement algorithms and open-source libraries, ie. PCL and OpenCV). You get the freedom to set up the cloud architecture and add new features.
With the software we want to go towards a sewer management platform where different companies (land surveyors, city, renovators,..) can upload/access collected data and see which party has consulted what type of data. Statistical information is also part of this.
Moonshot? Create an autonomous system that inspects, maps and reports the whole underground wastewater infrastructure!
You have always loved developing software to make your life easier, or made your own quick hacks using what you could find on the net. A degree in IT or similar is important but does not define you. Releasing early and iterating rapidly do not scare you. You write clear code and have a structured way of working.
You have the opportunity the get a piece of the cake with shares -open for discussion.
