You will be in charge of developing our multi channel social strategy (Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, website, etc), identifying new opportunities and obstacles.

You will be connecting with our audience through these channels from an innovative and creative standpoint, be it through unique GIFs, hashtags, or ‘behind the scenes’ videos, whatever you deem most suitable.

You will have knowledge of how to segment our audience to then reflect the best media strategies for each.

You will be in charge of the preparation of Press Releases, meeting the strict standards and expectations of our partners (see below!), so you should have exemplary written skills and fluent in English.

You will continuously gain feedback and insight from current followers, to enhance and improve your future campaigns, and the rest of the teams future content creation.

The current project: We are NASA contractors.

Here’s the rare chance to work on a meaningful project with inspiring NASA minds. We’ve been working with NASA for six years, and SETI for two, to create a space where interdisciplinary researchers can come together for eight weeks, addressing grand outer space challenges.

We call it: the Frontier Development Lab. By matching planetary scientists with machine learning experts, innovative solutions are found to problems within the following space topics: Space Weather, In Situ Resource use (asteroid mining), and asteroid detection. Last year was a great success, and we plan on making it even better this year, with your help.

Future projects: The Open Space Agency

We’re part of a growing community of ‘Astropreneurs’ who believe that the technology, skills and industrial base to meaningfully contribute to space exploration are now within the reach of small teams of passionate individuals.

Can you stimulate and empower people to become Astropreneurs through your creative outreach skills? We need individuals to believe they can be a part of this Space Race, and you would be exposing them to our goals, projects, aims and events. We are in the process of creating a Space Elevator. This would facilitate the idea generation and execution of Space exploration initiatives by providing a ‘makerspace’ and area to work for the up and coming Astropreneurs.
