Rocket Lab’s software engineers play a huge role in the success of the Electron rocket and Photon satellite programs. They’ve designed and built a new platform that solves problems using software, as opposed to conventional launch systems that are heavily mechanical.
The diverse and creative team work across all areas of the business, whether it is applying web and cloud technology to the work we do that’s changing the space industry or creating new software to manage the data involved in designing, building, and launching rockets.
Join Nimbus as we apply web and cloud technology to the new-space industry. As part of the team, you work on major features and new applications that are part of mission management, production, launch operations, and vehicle design. You will also work alongside an airsoft ninja, a protector of birds, a born speaker, and a master blacksmith.
