Democratizing access to opportunity

Satellite is a decentralized workforce training and placement program that connects talented professionals in up-and-coming U.S. cities to remote roles in modern technology sales organizations.

Next Icon@2x

As the transition to remote work continues to rise, technology companies are no longer constrained by the talent that resides in major tech hubs like San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles. Similarly, there are dozens of forward-thinking cities with a capable workforce eager for employment opportunities, but who have no interest in leaving the city they call home.

 

Satellite’s modern sales training program and community approach bridges this gap, leveling the playing field for motivated sales professionals looking to expand their career opportunities while creating a new modern workforce for technology sales organizations.
