Your background may be unconventional; as long as you have the essential qualifications, we encourage you to apply. While having “bonus” qualifications makes for a strong candidate, Astronomer values diverse experiences. Many of us at Astronomer haven’t followed traditional career paths, and we welcome it if you haven’t either.

Our core values guide every decision we make, setting the foundation for how we support and engage with our employees, customers, communities, and partners.

  • Empathy
    We’re humans first. We seek to understand why people do what they do and believe that innovation comes from human-centric questions, discoveries, and decisions. We act with compassion and build trust by owning our impact on the people and systems around us. 
  • Inclusion
    We welcome diverse perspectives and value our differences. We’re intentional about cultivating a respectful and welcoming environment with no ceiling on opportunity. Collaboration is our superpower. 
  • Curiosity
    We’re humble learners with deep curiosity about the world, technology, and each other. We’re active listeners and questioners, skilled at breaking down complex problems and making sense of them. We’re unafraid to challenge the past and present, and are driven in the pursuit of truth and continuous improvement. 
  • Grit
    We are energetic problem-solvers. We roll up our sleeves and figure it out as we go, navigating ambiguity with resilience. We’re powered by a shared sense of purpose and commitment to delivering excellence. 
  • Agility
    We’re a multi-disciplined team that’s focused on execution but nimble enough to adapt as the needs of our company, industry, and world evolve. We see change as opportunity. 
  • Transparency
    Openness is at the core of everything we do. We disrupt knowledge silos and seek feedback early and often. We take pride in contributing our work to the open-source community and owning our role as educators.
