The transition to clean energy is expected to drive the need for raw materials by 500% until 2050. Xpanse aims to be at the forefront of detecting potential mineral deposits using satellite data, powered by machine learning on Earth and beyond to help the mining industry matching the demand. This method has the potential to increase the efficiency of prospecting and to reduce the harmful environmental effects of the mining industry.
What we have accomplished
As an international team of three, with knowledge of product development, data analytics, and business operations we have built the foundation of the business case and acquired support from the KTH Innovation pre-incubator program. To further develop our algorithm and service we need specialized knowledge which is why we are looking for bringing onboard remote sensing geology competence either as a team member or an advisor.
About the opportunity
This role is an absolute key position within our team to develop our product and to fulfill our vision. Closely working together with our Chief Technology Officer (CTO) you will be responsible for advising on geological properties that could be collected via remote sensing tools. The information later will help to train our machine learning algorithm that will be used to identify potential mineral deposits. Furthermore, we also count on you to bring knowledge about the mining industry and the state of the art and in-development remote sensing technologies.
