Rocket Lab is the global leader in small satellite launch. Our mission is to open access to space to improve life on Earth.

Teams are nimble, decisions are made quickly, and we are action oriented.

While other companies talk about it, we do it!

As a member of the Neutron team with the focus on prototype component builds, you will work to help establish and develop methods to build test panels, jigs, tooling and components with the ultimate goal in mind of the team completing a full-scale build of our Neutron vehicle.

Your role will focus on, but not limited to the pressurised tanks, unpressurised sections, and fairings on both the S2 and S1 structures of the Neutron launch vehicle.

This position requires a wide knowledge of composite manufacturing techniques, product knowledge and an openness to trialing new and exploratory methods of building.
