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!
Your mission
The Electron Launch Vehicle is a fly-by-wire system and generates a large quantity of real-time data throughout the production and launch life-cycle. This data tells a story and lets Rocket Lab engineers and key stakeholders know how we are performing and provides evidence for continuous improvement. The Operational Data software ensures that this valuable information is robustly captured and made available to those who need it most.  An Operational Data Software engineer will provide vision, leadership, technical input and project coordination to the Operational Data Team in support of the Electron launch vehicle and Photon spacecraft.

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.
