Rocket Lab is a vertically integrated provider of small launch services, satellites, and spacecraft components. Our mission is to open access to space to improve life on Earth. Our team is over 1,300 people strong and we’re adding to it every week. Collaboration is at our core – every idea is heard, and everyone makes a difference. Teams are nimble, decisions are made quickly, and we are action oriented.
Senior Embedded Flight Software Engineer - Space Systems
At Rocket Lab, our family of Photon spacecraft are supporting a growing number of ground-breaking missions in low Earth orbit and far beyond. Right now, our team is deep in the development of Photon missions to the Moon and Mars for NASA, as well as the world’s first private mission to Venus. We are looking for an experienced Senior Embedded Flight Software Engineer - Space Systems to join the team making these missions a reality.
In this role, you will play a key role in supporting the development of flight software for our Photon spacecraft. You’ll spend your days participating in all aspects of software design and development, from requirements definition through coding and testing. And when we say test, we mean your software will be on orbit within weeks and months, not years. Thanks to having our own rockets and launch sites, we have frequent opportunities to test and operate our software on orbit.
This role is for someone who wants to see their software make a big impact on the way we explore space and use it as a platform for discovery and innovation. While your software settles into life in space, you’ll be based in our Long Beach HQ working amongst the rockets and Photon spacecraft as they’re built and collaborating with the vibrant, dedicated, and talented people who have made Rocket Lab into the global leader it is today.
