SpaceX is looking for “two rockstars” to help with their Starlink India initiative.

SpaceX’s Starlink unit in India, Starlink Satellite Communications Private Limited has registered their business earlier this month. The company documents filed with the government showed that they’re ready for action!

Elon Musk’s SpaceX has announced that it will be hiring three people for its Indian subsidiary, Starlink. Their job responsibilities include overseeing and maintaining customer relationships as well as providing technical support to local teams who shoot satellites into space from Cape Canaveral in Florida.

The first person hired under this new initiative is Sanjay Bhargava – he was promoted last year after leading West Bengal operations since 2015 where his focus included “establishing satellite Internet services throughout India.” The next two hires are also interested primarily in improving internet access around the world through innovative technology such us CubeSats which can provide reliable broadband even if you’re thousands of miles away from civilization.

Bhargava said in his Linkedin post that Elon Musk’s Starlink India is looking to hire a director of rural transformation and executive assistant.

“This is a historic moment for us. We are taking the first step to transforming India’s agriculture by creating jobs, catalyzing transformation and accelerating change in ways that have never been done before,” said Gopi Krishna Vadlamani in his Facebook post announcing plans to launch an executive assistant position at Growing Together – A Non-profit Organization That Focuses On Nutrition And Development Of Agriculture Based Farming Communities In Rural Parts Of South Asia (GrowingTogetherNPO). As reported on LinkedIn earlier this month–the organization has already started filling various openings including one executive assistant who will aid CEO Pradeep Khandekar throughout all aspects of running such business operations while working closely with other key staff members too.

Starlink, a space-based broadband service provider has revealed that they are planning an entry into India to expand their services. With Bhargava announcing this month that Starlink has plans for collaboration with Indian telecom companies and focusing primarily on rural areas in order to provide high-speed internet access, there’s no telling what could happen next!

Telecom Secretary Aruna Sundarajan said that broadband service providers should be contacted once the 12 Phase-1 aspirational districts are identified by NITI Aayog and they will discuss with interested parties about their interest levels, including USOF. She also expressed hope for a 100% coverage plan for this model network which can serve as “a template” across other areas of India or even internationally if necessary–the details still need some work before it becomes exactly what we want but I think our hopes will remain high!

Starlink, a company that has received more than 5,000 pre-orders from India is currently charging $99 or ₹7350 per customer and plans to deliver data speeds in the range of 50–150 Mbps during the beta stage.

Bhargava announced earlier that the company will focus on 10 rural Lok Sabha constituencies to provide internet services for 80 percent of Starlink terminals shipped into India.

“We want to collaborate with all and have others besides us licensed so satellite broadband can provide 100% coverage in remote areas,” he said in a social media post, adding “Together with Earth-based networks through stationary small antennas–our goal is providing complete access everywhere.”

Starlink has said they plan to “carry on the business of telecommunication services” including satellite broadband internet, content storage, and streaming as well as multi-media communication in India.

Its competitors include’s Kuiper and OneWeb, co-owned by the British government as well as Sunil Mittal-owned Bharti Enterprises., some of India’s largest companies with high profile CEOs such as Ratan Tata (MRT), Azim Premji (ODF)
