  • The "Internet of Things" (IoT) is expected to grow to $19 trillion over the next 10 years as 50 billion devices are brought online. Aeris is at the forefront of this industry, building networks and applications to enable Fortune 500 clients like Chrysler, Honda and Bosch fundamentally improve their businesses. Headquartered in Silicon Valley with offices in Chicago, London and Delhi as well as other markets, we rank among the top ten cellular providers for the IoT globally. We power critical projects across energy, transportation, retail, healthcare and more.


    Our company is in an enviable spot. We’re profitable, and both our bottom line and our global reach are growing rapidly. We’re playing in an exploding market where technology evolves daily and acquisitions / consolidations happen left and right. We’ve got a stellar, strategic management team who find joy in working together and are executing effectively across the board.


     A few things to know about us:

    • We do things differently. As a pioneer in an industry poised to reshape every sector of the global economy, we can’t settle for another companies tried and tested template. Innovation is the key to our success and it’s reflected in everything we do: from product design to corporate wellness.
    • Customer first. Everything we do is focused on making our customers successful.
    • We are owners. Strong leaders enable and empower their teams to figure out how to solve problems. You will be no exception, and will have the ownership, accountability and autonomy needed to be truly creative.
    • Integrity is essential. We believe in doing things well – and doing them right. Integrity is a core value here: you’ll see it embodied in our staff, our management approach and growing social impact work (we have a VP devoted to it).
    • We walk the walk on diversity. We’re a brilliant and eclectic mix of ethnicities, religions, industry experiences, sexual orientations, generations and more – and that’s by design. We see diverse perspectives as a core competitive advantage.
