Making Spaceflight Safer — Together

We are searching for world-class talent to join our team in our mission to make spaceflight safer. We believe there is power in diversity and our work can change the world for the better. 

We are Kayhan

Kayhan Space is a Techstars portfolio company with expertise in satellite collision assessment and avoidance, satellite navigation and tracking, and satellite operations. 

We’re a growing technology company with the mission to make spaceflight safer. Our eclectic crew brings together star talent from various disciplines to support the global space industry in its quest to explore the earth, moon, and beyond into the farthest corners of the universe.

We believe that space is an infrastructure that supports every aspect of human life on earth—from transportation to food production, from entertainment to national security, our daily lives depend on space. A sustainable orbital environment is a necessity to ensure a prosperous human life on earth.

Space is becoming a more and more congested and contested domain. In the not-so-distant future, where earth orbit is orders of magnitude more congested than today, satellite operators will need autonomous systems to help them safely operate their constellations. That’s where our team and products come in.

Our Team

Kayhan Space launched as a small-but-mighty team that is growing rapidly. Our team is now building technologies that make resilient autonomous constellations a reality.

Featured Employee

Derek Strobel | Lead Software Engineer

I coordinate development efforts at Kayhan, including managing the day-to-day development items of our team and maintaining the operations of our deployed software. Most of the time, I work with our other fantastic backend engineers to improve our astrodynamics algorithms and our processing backend. A fun fact about me is that I love rock climbing, though I haven't been able to go nearly as much as I'd like this past year.

Our Mission

Our Colorado-based company is committed to building an environment where innovation is rewarded, diversity is magnified, and ambition is not throttled.

At Kayhan we have the goal of leaving a great legacy behind. Whatever you do, big or small, we want you to own it. Because that’s the legacy you’ll leave for others. 

We are skiers, parents, cooks, musicians, campers, geeks, farmers, scientists, and pet lovers. While we may come from different backgrounds and have different opinions and interests, we are united around a common set of core values.

Integrity

Integrity is paramount to our success as a company. Telling the truth and providing accurate data is crucial for satellite operations — otherwise, it can cost lives. Maintaining a high level of transparency allows the Kayhan team to provide an open workplace culture that supports professional growth and development across the organization.

Diversity

At Kayhan Space, we want our employees to be empowered to shoot for the moon! Our company is committed to building a diverse, inclusive, and equitable team where members experience a sense of belonging. We believe these non-negotiables enhance the quality of our relationships with clients, partners, and vendors of all identities and backgrounds to make us a better, more effective organization.

Hard Work

We value hustlers who hold themselves accountable and who are able to think on their feet, as evidenced by our founders’ tireless work ethic! Kayhan employees seek to establish and surpass goals that will allow us to reach new heights.
