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!
  
Your mission
Launching rockets and operating satellites requires a symphony of multiple teams, multiple sites, and multiple complex systems working together towards mission success. Software drives every aspect of this, and Rocket Lab has a large number of complex software products. Working with Rocket Lab’s software team the Software QA Engineer will be responsible for coordination and execution of all aspects of software quality including standards, processes, testing, and configuration management. You’ll have a software development background and be comfortable talking in depth with engineers regarding implementation details.

  • Minimum of 6 years experience in a software development environment with major focus on software quality assurance.

  • Experience with Team City, Jenkins, GitLab CI or other build system.
  • Experience with SQA of embedded and desktop software applications
  • Use of C/C++ and/or Python for writing automated tests or tools
  • Experience with Linux and Windows

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.
