Join the BlackSky team
At BlackSky, we’re doing work with impact. It’s complex. It’s high tech. It’s deep. And, it’s transformational. We know none of that can happen without a group of talented people who give their best and are both rewarded and respected for their effort.
We need your expertise and your passion. In exchange, we’ll give you the chance be part of something bigger than any one of us.
We’re a fast-paced team focused on accelerating the innovation curve of space. If you’re driven and creative, you’ll find BlackSky is a catalyst for your career like no other. Not only will you make great friends, you’ll achieve great things!
You will enjoy a wide range of benefits and perks designed to help you achieve personal, professional, and financial growth. Ours is an environment of opportunity and progress.
Our work is fast-paced and, at times, demanding. But we know that when we ask a lot, we have to provide a lot. Our goal is to always strive for balance and support our people to be well-rounded, healthy individuals and not just BlackSky employees.
BlackSky employees all contribute to and are part of a culture that helps us show up at our best. You can expect ongoing professional development and support, and we are strongly committed to diversity, inclusion, and making sure all voices are both represented and heard.

Like to work out at lunch? Visit our on-site gyms. Yoga your thing? Make it happen. And recharge afterwards with free snacks and beverages
Team get togethers
We host events across teams. Learn who they are, not just where they sit and what they do.
Want to work in a stuffy office environment? Not at BlackSky. We want you for who you are, not what you wear.
Flexible work schedules
Need to focus on family certain hours of the day? Are you a night owl? We can work with you to build a schedule that works best for you and your teammates.
PC, mac or …
You select the type of computing environment that works best for you. And, yes, we are deeply into cloud computing.
Lots of companies offer embroidered hats and gear (and we do, too). But, which of them offer Mission patches? Your friends will envy our unique swag.
