As well as a being a career-defining role , working at Rocket Lab means being part of meaningful projects with world-leading experts.
Collaboration is at our core - every idea is heard, and everyone makes a difference.
We get things done. Our team is nimble, decisions are made quickly, and we are action oriented. While other companies talk about it, we do it.
This means projects get the green light faster and ideas are put into practice rapidly.
Everyone works on the big stuff . This isn’t a huge aerospace company where you get lost in bureaucracy and end up a tiny cog in a giant machine.
At Rocket Lab, your work directly impacts the success of each mission. Everyone’s voice is heard, and everyone can contribute major projects.
This is your chance to play a pivotal role in developing space systems that change the way we access space.
