    Business Outlook


    Astranis is an up and coming aerospace company in the heart of San Francisco. It’s located in a historic building right off of Pier 70 that absolutely passes the vibe check of a new hard tech startup (awesome facility, free lunches/snacks, myriad of perks, etc). I have grown so much during my time at Astranis. The people, culture, setting, and mission all work together to create the perfect work environment that rewards those seeking the most out of their careers. During my time at Astranis I have seen my scope increase and I believe my work is meaningful towards connecting the unconnected. The people of Astranis are all brilliant in their own ways and learning alongside them is the perfect way to acquire new skills, both for your professional and personal life. Most importantly, the future prospect of the company is strong. Astranis should become a revenue generating company within the year by launching 5 satellites. Even during the current economic downturn where most of tech is doing layoffs, Astranis has remained steadfast, financially healthy, and continues to grow! This is telling of the executive leadership that has created a company that can endure and has a product offering and business case with merit.


    Let’s be real, this isn’t your 40 hrs a week gig or big tech where you can coast. I often find myself pondering about work in my personal life, BUT with some discipline it is absolutely possible to maintain a healthy work life balance.

    1. Sr IT Systems Administrator Interview

      Negative Experience
      Easy Interview

      I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Astranis (San Francisco, CA) in Aug 2023


      About a week after applying online, I received an ITAR form, then a generic email asking for interview availability. The form was extremely generic and had a calendar to select the date/times, but with nothing grayed out or filtering for proper times. The first interview was extremely simple (intro to computing level, almost "how do you turn on a computer" questions), to the point I thought I was being interviewed for the wrong position. After a few days I was again sent the same generic email template asking for more interview availability. 10 minutes before that interview, they canceled and asked to reschedule. The reschedule email link was the same, but did not work. I sent an email inquiring on this and included my availability. I received a "position has been filled" email in response.

      On a leetcode style interview page with a bash window: "Show me how you list the files in the root directory". "Now show be the permissions on those files". "Explain what they mean".... did not get harder.
