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 100 world-class engineers that move fast. We raised our Series B ($90M) from Andreessen Horowitz and Venrock, launched our first satellite in 2018, secured our first major customer deal in 2019, and we’ll triple the satellite internet capacity of Alaska in 2021.

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.

Role Design, simulate, implement, and measure passive/active RF sub-systems at microwave frequencies, including; LNAs, power amplifiers, up/down convertors, oscillators, etc. Integrate these systems into the spacecraft by working closely with the rest of the team

Requirements Passion for hardware development, including working in a fast-paced environment and hands-on design and development Deep knowledge of basic RF concepts, such as transmission lines, impedance matching, filter design, and active circuits Hands-on experience in designing, building, and testing RF hardware for microwave frequencies Experience with RF simulation tools US Citizenship or Green Card

Bonus Antennas and Electromagnetics propagation knowledge and background Experience with Software Defined Radios Experience with high speed ADCs and DACs Experience with PCB design Experience with python Experience automating RF measurements
