Democratizing access to opportunity

Satellite is a new kind of decentralized workforce training and placement program that connects talented professionals in up-and-coming U.S. cities to remote, entry-level sales development roles in 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.

Why Satellite?
“In the midst of a global pandemic, I decided to take a leap of faith. I left a 14-year career to find an opportunity that was community-facing but would also allow me to utilize my business acumen. Satellite's vision of creating equity and democratizing access to opportunities was in alignment with the vision for my career. I have found an organization that challenges me every day to show up, stay curious, remain open to change - all for the mission of serving right where I live.”

Careers at Satellite

We’re collaborators, not individualists. We designed our day-to-day and week-to-week activities to make sure we are staying in sync and connected as a team even though we work remotely. A typical week in the life of a Satellite employee begins with a business review meeting where we discuss work-in-progress and set our goals for the week. We have daily standups where we share progress and any blockers. On Fridays we have a “Relax Rewind and Connect” meeting to celebrate wins, review what we learned and get to know each other personally.
