Working at Blue Origin

At Blue Origin, it’s our genuine passion for space exploration that makes an incredibly difficult job equally exhilarating. Our hiring bar is exceptionally high, and we want to keep our team small and collaborative. You have to want to work in an environment where the people occupying each and every role are among the most technically gifted in their area of expertise. You should be at the top of your field, remarkably dedicated, and excited about shaping our future in space.

We’re also working on real hardware—so building and testing should be in your blood, too. Our engineering, manufacturing, and business teams work in a 260,000 sq. ft. facility on 26 acres in Kent, Washington—just 20 minutes south of Seattle. We do our engine and flight testing at our range in West Texas (two hours east of El Paso) at the world’s only privately owned and operated launch site.
