Who we are

The Umbra story

Umbra was born when two lifelong friends dreamt up the idea of building a powerful microsatellite that could deliver the highest-resolution Earth observation data ever offered commercially.

On June 30, 2021 the dream became reality as Umbra launched its first satellite into space. But we're just getting started. Umbra has a vision to illuminate the world, meaning anyone can find out what's happening on the ground anywhere on Earth at any time.

Exciting challenges lie ahead—new software products, satellite launches, and space missions are in the works. Steered by our core values, we’ll tackle these challenges creatively and collaboratively. Join us!

Top Talent

To succeed, we must demand excellence from each other. Each person at the company must seek to raise the average on the team. We can work together to actively coach and develop our abilities.

Lead by Example

We each have a unique leadership styles that we can and will use to lead by example. This means we will strive to guide others through your behavior instead of your words. We approach each other with both compassion and candor.

First Principles Thinking

When we encounter a challenge, we use first principles to develop solutions. Actively question every assumption you think you know about a given problem or scenario, and open yourself up to new insights and solutions. This is only achievable through humility - sometimes the right answer is “I don’t know, but I will learn.”

Change is Constant

Umbra’s innovations are catalysts for change. The technology will change, the organization will change, and the mission will change. We don't fixate on a single aspect of the company in the present. There is unlimited opportunity for growth for those who learn, improvise, adapt and overcome.

No risk, no reward

By conceiving and building game-changing products, we are shaping the future of our industry. We take bets on big ideas, while recognizing that the pursuit of perfection requires constant adjustment and iteration.

Stay humble

We're all human here. We work as a team and celebrate each other’s wins. Underdogs welcome.
