Iridium Careers

We are committed to creating an environment where our employees are proud to work.

Thirty years ago, three engineers envisioned a satellite constellation that would provide communications anywhere in the world. Today, that small project has grown into one of the world’s most innovative communications companies: Iridium.

Our network enables connectivity from pole to pole – and even into outer space! From monitoring the oceans for impending tsunamis, to protecting wildlife from poachers, to enabling phone calls from the International Space Station, our network is everywhere – and our employees are at the heart of all we do.

Here you’ll find a career that challenges and stimulates you, peers who respect and support you, and benefits that provide you the opportunity for a healthy work-life balance. Start your journey with us today!
