Astronomer targets customers on all major cloud platforms, as well as on-prem.



  • Write open-source server-side code to power the platform in a mixture of Go, Python and Javascript.
  • Build, configure and program against other open source infrastructure components that make up the stack, such as Prometheus, Grafana, Fluentd, Elasticsearch, Kibana, Postgres, Docker, and Kubernetes.
  • Work with enterprise customers to configure and install the platform on their Kubernetes clusters.
