Astronomer has moved! At the start of this year, we relocated our headquarters to the heart of New York City at 50 West 23rd Street to support our growing business and customer base. Now, we’re excited to give you a first look at our new space and share more about the motivation behind the move.
When asked about the new headquarters, our CEO Andy Byron said, “As an open-source company, it’s important for us to be near other open-source companies and the broader community. Cincinnati was an incredible place for us to start our company and we will continue to have a presence in Cincinnati. Now, we’re excited to build a bigger presence in the NYC area.”
Our CTO, Julian LaNeve also said, “New York unlocks many opportunities for us to better engage with our customers and open-source community. New York’s tech scene is vibrant and this move gives us access to a new pool of talented candidates as we aim to expand our team and fill crucial roles.”
The New York office is currently home to a large Astronomer employee base and we’re actively looking to fill multiple sales and engineering roles. If you’re interested in joining our team, check out our open positions.
The new space is conveniently located in Manhattan and is well-equipped for our growing team. Its spacious layout helps facilitate collaboration and features a great view of the Empire State Building.
Apache Airflow downloads have surged to 30 million a month so as this user base continues to increase, community meetups will become more important and in demand. We’re looking forward to hosting some of those events on our new roof deck –– another exciting feature of the space. View our upcoming meetups and events.
The new office builds on the momentum we’ve been experiencing since last year when we expanded our leadership team, grew our customer base, and announced multiple product updates. These include:
- The latest Astro platform release simplifies connectivity, secures and optimizes data platforms, and empowers teams to unlock the full potential of their data.
- A new set of Apache Airflow integrations to accelerate LLMOps (large language model operations) and support AI use cases.
- An integration with Microsoft Azure, empowering Azure users with Astro’s cloud-native data orchestration capabilities.
- A new architecture and deployment model with competitive consumption-based pricing, ensuring teams of all sizes can harness the advanced capabilities of Astro for data orchestration.
We were also honored to be named one of CRN’s Hottest Big Data Startups of 2023, alongside other leaders in the industry.
