Become Part of History by Helping Us Build the Future

Working at Blue Origin

At Blue Origin, our genuine passion for space exploration is evident through the work we do. We’re looking for people who share that passion and want to turn their career into a calling. We're shaping our future in space and we’re looking for dedicated and inspired people to join us.

If you share our dedication to thoughtful development and meticulous testing, there may be a fit for you at one of our locations across the country. Our engineering, manufacturing and business teams challenge the impossible every day in our 260,000-square-foot facility on 26 acres in Kent, Washington – just 20 minutes south of Seattle. We test the country’s next-generation engines and launch New Shepard at our facility in West Texas at the world’s only privately owned and operated launch site. Our orbital launch vehicle, New Glenn, will come to life at the active rocket factory at Cape Canaveral, Florida, where we’re one of the only launch companies building right on the space coast. The engines that will power New Glenn will be built in Huntsville, Alabama, where we’re currently building an engine production facility and refurbishing the historic Test Stand 4670 at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center.
