Chief of Staff / Director – Strategy at Kawa Space

Company Details

Critical Earth Observation Infrastructure for the New World. From tasking high resolution imagery to generating geospatial insights, we have it covered.

If space is the new Silk Route, we must build roads so that our future generations can go explore the ever-expanding universe. Our responsibility at Kawa is to build the building blocks for future space explorers.

Kawa Space is building a software-driven geo-intelligence platform. Kawa employees enjoy the opportunity and benefits of working at an early-stage space startup, but in an environment much more akin to a later stage company given the experience of the founding team. The culture at Kawa encourages innovation, independent problem solving, and collaboration as we continue to mature our product in the ever-changing world of space intelligence.
