Rocket Lab is seeking exceptional engineers to work on its Photon satellite program. Photon is a first-of-its-kind platform in the small satellite industry: a versatile satellite bus that is also an integral part of the launch vehicle. Photon has been selected to help return humans to the lunar surface (CAPSTONE), do science at Mars (ESCAPADE), prove out on-orbit propellant depot technology (LOXSAT), and pioneer in-space manufacturing (Varda). Most recently, Rocket Lab was selected as the bus provider for Globstars new satellites, positioning Rocket Lab as a constellation-class satellite manufacturer As the Mission Assurance Lead, you’ll play a pivotal role in making the Globalstar mission a success.
