About goTenna:

goTenna creates distributed communication networks that increase scale, resiliency, and access. Communication is the keystone of all fundamental facilities and systems, but today’s infrastructure must evolve in order to meet 21st century needs. At goTenna, we are working on advancing universal access to connectivity by decentralizing it.

goTenna builds next-generation wireless architectures to power bottom-up communications networks that get stronger as they grow. We focus on low-power, low-cost, modular mobile ad-hoc networking protocols and devices that are easy-to-use and developer-friendly. Our parallel networks are designed to both enable completely off-grid communication and augment traditional systems by extending the practical edge of connectivity.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
