We’re Astro, a software startup currently operating in ‘quiet mode’ in Palo Alto, pursuing ambitious challenges in workplace messaging, collaboration, and AI. In March 2017 we announced having raised $10M from Redpoint Ventures, Harrison Metal, Aspect Ventures, and Upside Partnership.
Our team has substantial expertise in workplace communications, with experience ranging from starting companies, to working at some of Silicon Valley’s most well-known large technology companies. Many of us have worked together on previous start-ups with multiple successful outcomes, such as acquisitions by LinkedIn, VMware, and Yahoo. Through this, we’ve built email & messaging products that have been used by 100s of millions of end users at tens of thousands of companies.
We run lean (although we provide top-notch healthcare, and a couple other interesting benefits), to ensure we have plenty of runway to achieve our ambitions, and nearly every dollar we spend goes into (a) hiring & compensating great people, and (b) ensuring we have the software & hardware to be productive & satisfied in our work.
Our sponsoring partner at Redpoint Ventures, Satish Dharmaraj is also a successful founder (having founded and sold an enterprise software company for $350M) an accomplished engineering leader, and passionately engaged in our vision.
We’re an equal opportunity employer and invite applicants of diverse backgrounds and experiences.
