Starlink, the satellite internet branch of SpaceX, the rocket company founded by billionaire Elon Musk, revealed that it is hiring people for the Indian subsidiary.
Sanjay Bhargava, Starlink country director India, made the hiring announcement via a LinkedIn post.
He said, “I am pleased to announce that we are now officially looking for two rockstars to join the Indian subsidiary,” while asking eligible people to go through the job details and send resumes.
Bhargava also stated that the executive assistant role is not a chief of staff position and that the director of rural transformation must also be technical.
Additionally, the LinkedIn post said: “Another small step towards catalyzing and accelerating transformation starting with Rural India. As and when there are other open positions they will appear on the jobs board.”
He shared a link that redirects to the SpaceX website, specifically the ‘Open Positions In India’ section. By clicking on the job titles, eligible individuals will be able to see the job descriptions and then can apply for the respective position.
SpaceX's Starlink unit in India registered its business earlier this month, according to company paperwork submitted with the government, as it prepares to start internet services in the country. Having a local entity, Starlink Satellite Communications Private Limited, will allow the company to seek government licences needed to deliver broadband and other satellite-based communication services.
Starlink is one of a rising number of firms that are launching small satellites as part of a low-Earth orbiting network to provide low-latency broadband internet services around the world, with a special focus on remote locations where terrestrial internet infrastructure faces challenging connectivity issues. Currently, Amazon's Kuiper and Bharti Group's subsidiary OneWeb, are the top competitors of Starlink.
Starlink now serves users in 14 countries, including the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and 10 European countries. However, recently according to a report, a Tesla China spokesperson said that SpaceX has no intentions to introduce the Starlink satellite service to China.
