Interested in helping build a new generation of GNSS satellites at the speed of new space?

GNSS (GPS) creates upwards of $500B in economic value in the US every year, supporting everything from consumer applications, to transportation systems, to time sync for critical infrastructure. As these industries progress towards autonomy the performance and security demands of their navigation systems are increasing beyond what GNSS can support, leaving a need for a cost-effective global solution.

Using lessons we've learned at places like SpaceX and Blue Origin, Xona is constructing a modern satellite network at the rapid pace of the new space industry leveraging the recent wave of technology and regulatory advancements. Building on our patent pending small satellite architecture, we are developing a robust and accurate service that is an independent alternative to GNSS rather than a correction, solving the longstanding challenge of obtaining a reliable high accuracy solution from the very fragile GNSS signals. Our satellite system will provide the first ever high-accuracy global navigation and timing services with the security and resilience modern applications need to operate safely at scale.

Xona is looking for the best and brightest to join our rapidly growing team. Our work environment is fast-paced and entrepreneurial, and we all pitch in to get done what needs to get done! This is a growth opportunity for a highly energetic, excellent communicator with an eager willingness to take on the big and small tasks. This is a unique chance to get into a high growth startup at the ground floor.

You will be responsible for different facets of the day-today operations of Xona from managing facilities, accounting assistance, and community engagement.
