WHY I CHOOSE MAXAR

“Something exciting about Maxar is we are slowly coming together across a number of different business units where all these little unique pockets that have been woven together over time. It’s really exciting the ways they are coming together and still maintaining their uniqueness. When you go to any different office, they have things that make them standout, but then you also feel this overarching sense that you still belong here, even though this isn’t your home office.”

-Kylie, Scrum Master

“One thing I really love working for Maxar is the shared interest in providing geospatial solutions. For someone who is really into geography and GIS, Maxar is a good fit. There is a growing culture that allows us to be able to build really cool things or really different things but also have fun while doing it.”

-Gibran, Geospatial Software Engineer

“Joining Maxar was my first opportunity to do what I knew I wanted to do for my career and everything else just kind of felt like buildup to being here at Maxar.”

-Kal, All-Source Analyst

“What I like about working at Maxar is that we put the mission first and because of my background that has a special value to me. I like that we are coming together as one Maxar and that opens up new opportunities between space infrastructure and intelligence.”

-Lisa, Chief Architect for Global Support Programs

“What I love about Maxar is that everybody has been great in encouraging your career journey of moving up and moving forward.” -Kelly, Geospatial Analyst
