Swarm Technologies has developed the world’s smallest two-way communication satellites. Through our constellation we provide low-bandwidth, low-cost connectivity to return data from anywhere on Earth, focusing on regions without cell or WiFi coverage. Our unique economics make Swarm’s network, ground hardware, and web platform accessible at the industry’s lowest costs to deliver maximum value to customers. Swarm provides IoT tracking and data return services for industrial/sensor networks, particularly those in the maritime shipping, agriculture, energy, and ground transportation industries.

We are a team of engineers, scientists, and startup operators who have previously worked in academia and NASA, Google, Apple, Terra Bella, and venture-backed companies. We’re actively looking for teammates that share our passion for reshaping global connectivity.
