Meet Our Mission Operations Team


Astroscale was born out of the necessity to protect one of our precious natural resources – Earth’s orbits. While I cannot promise you an easy and quiet ride, I can guarantee an exciting career in a rapidly evolving industry. Together we will grow and learn a lot as a team as we tackle one of the biggest issues facing the world.

"Astroscale is a rapidly growing company in the space sustainability area – a perfect alignment with my past work! We are all passionate here about working to clean up space junk, and I enjoy that everybody is welcome to contribute to the development of the company and driving its direction. The opportunity to work in a very multi-cultural environment with creative, friendly and social colleagues, spend time working in Tokyo, and the flexible working conditions (including working from home), make Astroscale a great place to work!"
