Kepler is on an audacious mission: to bring the internet to space. Founded in 2015, our ambition is to provide internet connectivity in space, whether in LEO, MEO, GEO, or beyond. With an expanding base of early customers and our first 23 satellites in orbit, Kepler is continuing to grow and expand its most important asset – the Team!
As the Inventory and Shipping Associate, you’ll lead Kepler’s company-wide supply chain activities, ensuring our engineering and manufacturing teams have the supplies and parts needed to design, test, and produce Kepler’s next-generation constellation of satellites. You’ll also play a critical role in shipping out our satellites and equipment to virtually any place in the world! You’ll own the upstream and downstream supply chain activities including logistics, customs, export permits, and inventory management.
In this newly expanded position, there will be a mix of following established and routine processes while also having the opportunity to improve the day-to-day of our logistics and inventory management activities. We’ll be looking to you to maintain the processes playbook and implement new systems to add value to our supply chain activities.
If you’re the person who refuses to accept “because that’s how we’ve always done it”, and someone with an “I’ll figure it out” attitude, we want to hear from you!
