Downstream Space Sector Recruitment

Dedicated Recruitment Agency for Downstream Space

Space is part of all our daily lives, and nowhere is this clearer than in downstream space. Space exploration has provided humanity with a wealth of knowledge; downstream space turns this knowledge into applications on Earth – the everyday and the visionary alike. In a sector expected to be worth $3 trillion, downstream space represents an area of rapid and significant growth. At EVONA, we recruit exclusively for the space sector, perfectly positioning us to forge the fruitful connections between employers and candidates that will fuel future innovations.

What is Downstream Space?

Downstream space is the segment of the sector that uses space-derived systems, data, and information for applications, products, and services on Earth. From navigation to Earth Observation to emissions monitoring and satellite communications, downstream space is behind many critical aspects of our daily lives. It is also considered the side of the space sector where the most rapid growth is coming from, meaning there are numerous opportunities out there for driven and inspired candidates.

What is a Downstream Space Company?

A downstream space company specialises in the application of the data and services derived from upstream space. And because the applications of space technology and research are highly varied, so too are the companies in this part of the sector. From military and national security to navigation, meteorology, and satellite communications, the operations of numerous organisations across the globe depend on downstream space. However, in order to translate the data from space into these real world applications, downstream space companies need top talent. If you think you have what it takes to turn space research into humanity’s next pioneering invention, we might have the role for you.

What is the Difference Between Upstream and Downstream Space?

Upstream and downstream space are two sides of same sector, and both contribute to the other. Whilst upstream space concerns the development of space objects and their propulsion into space, downstream space focuses on turning the data and insights gained through this activity into on-Earth applications. Though both are equally important to the space ecosystem, downstream is the segment of the sector where the most significant growth is occurring, and the greatest number of opportunities lie.

The Importance of Downstream Space

Downstream space is seen by many as the fastest growing and most exciting segment of the space sector due to its real world application of space-derived insights. You have downstream space to thank for a whole host of products and services that are part of our daily lives. From CAT scanners to portable vacuum cleaners to cardiac pumps to artificial limbs, the technology behind many pioneering inventions originated in space.

Not only that, but geospatial information has the potential to predict natural disasters, mitigate risks, monitor deforestation, and inform farmers on how to feed a growing world to solve world hunger. The space sector radiates good thanks to the data that flows to Earth.
