Company Details

Rocket Lab is the global leader in small satellite launch. Our mission is to open access to space to improve life on Earth. There are endless possibilities for what we can achieve with better access to space, and that access is now a reality thanks to Rocket Lab. Our team is 500 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. While other companies talk about it, we do it!

About the role

Our Business Automation Software team provide critical shopfloor workflow tools that run every inch of our Electron vehicle production line here in New Zealand. These production lines are similar to any other manufacturing operation, requiring custom workflow and calibration tools, but instead of household appliances or medical devices – we use these applications to produce rocket engines and fuel tanks.

This is not a role developing the software for the actual flight systems on the vehicles. Instead, this team develops applications that support our Engineers to securely and thoroughly build and test the systems which will allow us to produce safer, faster, better spacecraft.

Required skills and experience:

  • Tertiary qualification in Software Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or similar.
  • Minimum of 1 year professional experience within a relevant discipline
  • Excellent problem solving skills
  • Be a team player and have a positive attitude
  • Technical experience
    • C#/.NET Development
    • Typescript/JavaScript development
    • Angular or other Frontend framework (React, Vue, etc)
    • Git
    • SOLID principles

Desirable (but not required) skills:

  • Experience with docker/kubernetes
  • Network programming (Sockets/WebSockets)
  • Nodejs/NPM related build systems and tooling
  • Elasticsearch experience
  • Domain Driven Design

As well as a being a career-defining role, working at Rocket Lab means being part of meaningful projects with world-leading experts.

Collaboration is at our core – every idea is heard, and everyone makes a difference.

We get things done. Our team is nimble, decisions are made quickly, and we are action oriented. While other companies talk about it, we do it. This means projects get the green light faster and ideas are put into practice rapidly.

Everyone works on the big stuff. This isn’t a huge aerospace company where you get lost in bureaucracy and end up a tiny cog in a giant machine. At Rocket Lab, your work directly impacts the success of each mission. Everyone’s voice is heard, and everyone can contribute major projects. This is your chance to play a pivotal role in developing space systems that change the way we access space.
