Blue Origin is empowered by a vision where millions of people are living and working in space. To achieve our vision, we are developing reusable rocket engines and launch vehicles that will dramatically lower the cost of access to space. Driven by our motto, Gradatim Ferociter or “step by step, ferociously,” our incremental approach builds upon each success as we develop ground-breaking spaceflight systems. We don’t just build rockets—we build a culture around methodical innovation and exploration.


As part of a small, passionate, and accomplished team of experts, you will work on the design, development, and maintenance of avionics hardware for various spaceflight systems. You will share in the team’s impact on all aspects of systems engineering practices, including requirements development, system analysis, design, and verification testing.  You will develop, allocate, manage, and verify requirements and interfaces using DOORS and other tools. Your activities may include engagement with design teams in conducting trade studies, specification development, risk and change management, gated reviews, fault analysis, verification and test planning, and configuration and data management.  This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your dedicated commitment and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable spaceflight.
