Launch Complex 1:
The world’s only private orbital launch site, Rocket Lab’s Launch Complex 1 is located on the beautiful Māhia Peninsula on New Zealand’s east coast. Whereas Rocket Lab designs and manufactures its rockets elsewhere in New Zealand, you’ll be part of the team at the actual launch site of Electron, working alongside a dedicated, hard-working, tight-knit crew.

The diverse teams at Launch Complex 1 in Māhia are made up of locals throughout the East Coast, and  New Zealand and international staff who have relocated the popular beach and holiday destination. As well as enjoying the most beautiful drive to work you could ask for, opportunities abound on days off for surfing, fishing, and other outdoor activities that don't exist in other major cities. The teams and facilities at Launch Complex 1 are growing all the time, making Māhia an exciting location for your next career move.

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.
