All Space jobs


Come be a part of the 21st Century Space Race. At Firefly, we are focused on the leading edge of space systems progression. Our company is committed to providing economical and convenient access to space for small payloads through the design, manufacture, and operation of reliable launch vehicles and spacecraft. To get there, we are looking for incredibly passionate, bright, and determined people to join our team.


We are building rockets, moon landers and space-grade parts over here, none of which happen without reliable tools, innovative thinking, and collaboration. Firefly Aerospace is tackling problems in the “new space” market, which means we have opportunities to extract the best processes from “heritage space” development and combine that with today’s available technology to provide beautiful solutions for these challenges.

The Information Technology (IT) and Information Engineering (IE) Departments work together to support the flow of information across the organization, build new software tools making production more efficient, and supply organizational pathways to share and distribute technical information to our customers and partners.

As a Software Developer at Firefly Aerospace, you’ll be pushing the boundaries of data intensive software development to build scalable, complex systems. As a member of a startup organization, you’ll have the opportunity to truly drive the creation of data analytics platforms, enterprise resource planning systems, and spearhead new projects that directly improve our ability to design, build, test, and launch rockets. Firefly is growing and we need capable people. Our fast-paced environment is exciting and full of growth opportunities.
