Join our team
This world’s problems are too complex and unpredictable to be solved with a siloed mindset.
That’s why we’ve assembled a team with deep and diverse experience who share a passion for solving difficult problems across a variety of industries including space, mining, and transportation.
Our team is growing quickly. We’re hiring all kinds of engineers, scientists, and more…we’d hire a juggler if the problem calls for it. If you believe the fight for a better world is just getting started, join us to meet the unknown together.
Who we are
First Mode was founded with the belief that it’s not too late to make good.
We’re a forward-thinking team of engineers, scientists, dreamers, movers and shakers. We come from different backgrounds, different disciplines, and different walks of life, but we’re united in one belief: fighting for a better world is worth it.
