Four billion people do not have access to the internet. Astranis is going to change that. We are building the next generation of smaller, lower-cost telecommunications satellites to bring the world online.

Come work with incredibly smart people who have flown things in space before. No prior space experience needed, you just need to enjoy getting your hands dirty with real hardware and be okay with struggling to do things that seem impossibly hard.

We’re a well-funded team of over 60 world-class engineers that moves fast. We raised our Series A from Andreessen Horowitz and Y Combinator in 2017, launched our first satellite in 2018, secured our first client in 2019, and we’ll triple the satellite internet capacity of Alaska in 2020.

Our mission and our products are meant to connect the world and everyone in it, regardless of gender, race, creed, or any other distinction. We believe in a diverse and inclusive workplace, and we encourage all people to join our team and bring their unique perspective to help make us stronger.
- Manage the work flows, transactions, reporting, and record keeping aspects of our people function, including payroll, benefits, and compliance.
Provide expertise and guidance on employment practices, legal compliance, company policies, etc.
- Ensure HR operational excellence with accurate, timely, and robust information, process, and project management practices.
- Champion and role model our culture, values, and mission, finding ways to continually strengthen them at the company overall.
