As part of a hardworking team technicians and engineers, you will build human rated orbital launch vehicles. This is a boots-on-the-ground, hands-on-hardware, assembly technician role. This is for the tinkers, the makers, the creatives, the pioneers, the problem solvers, those who own their role as if they are going to fly on the vehicle. We are building a road to space, and a rocket that approximates the size of the Saturn V. The path is long, with challenges at every step of the way. Opportunities to do extraordinary things, make a difference, and leave a lasting legacy are limited only by your ability and desire to grasp them. Here, if you’re bored, you’re not doing it right.

We are looking for someone to apply their technical expertise, leadership skills, and commitment to quality to positively impact safe human spaceflight. Passion for our mission and vision is required!

If you share our passions and vision, thrive in a dynamic startup environment, excel on integrated cross-functional teams of diverse individuals, are experienced and skilled in several relevant technologies (even if perhaps not in the aerospace industry), continuously seek out opportunities to learn and improve, and do not allow title or job description to limit the depth or breadth of your contributions, then we would love to hear from you.
