Posted on Tuesday, July 2, 2024

At Blue Origin, we envision millions of people living and working in space for the benefit of Earth. We’re working to develop reusable, safe, and low-cost space vehicles and systems within a culture of safety, collaboration, and inclusion. Join our diverse team of problem solvers as we add new chapters to the history of spaceflight!

We are a diverse team of collaborators, doers, and problem-solvers who are relentlessly committed to a culture of safety. This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your commitment and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable space flight. Join us in lowering the cost of access to space and enabling Blue Origin’s vision of millions of people living and working in space for the benefit of Earth.

As part of a diverse and hardworking team of technicians, you will build sub-assemblies for major launch vehicle structures, fluids components and panels, and other spaceflight systems. Throughout the manufacturing process, you will help to identify, develop, and deploy methods to improve quality, reduce cost, and optimize build sequence and schedules.

If you share our passions and vision, thrive in a dynamic environment, excel on integrated cross-functional teams of diverse individuals, are experienced and skilled in several relevant technologies (even if perhaps not in the aerospace industry), continuously seek out opportunities to learn and improve, enjoy occasional travel, and do not allow title or job description to limit the depth or breadth of your contributions, then we would love to hear from you.
