About The Role

About Rocket Lab
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
The Lead Analyst works closely with the Director of Vehicle Engineering and company managers to ensure the Analysis department delivers to the requirements of engineering, mission management and operational parts of the company.   
  
The expectation for this position is to split time between managing the workflow and people within the analysis team while still making individual contribution to analysis outputs.
  
Success in this position will be measured by the ability of the combined analysis team to efficiently contribute to the overall success of the engineering department at Rocket Lab. This success will be delivered through high engagement of Analysis team members and skillful prioritisation of competing analysis requests from other parts of the company.
  
Essential skills
  • 5+ Years industry experience
  • Proven experience leading teams for on-time delivery of projects
  • Aerospace, mechanical or mechatronics engineering degree or equivalent qualification
  • Experience with engineering structural analysis
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • The ability to develop and maintain relationships with a broad range of people of varying backgrounds, and to be adept at engaging with those people
  • Sound analytical skills – able to see the big picture, make connections and appropriate decisions
  
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.
