Working at Blue Origin
At Blue Origin, our genuine passion for space exploration is evident through the work we do. We’re looking for people who share that passion and want to turn their career into a calling. We're shaping our future in space and we’re looking for dedicated and inspired people to join us.
If you share our dedication to thoughtful development and meticulous testing, there may be a fit for you at one of our locations across the country. Our engineering, manufacturing and business teams challenge the impossible every day in our 260,000-square-foot facility on 26 acres in Kent, Washington – just 20 minutes south of Seattle. We test the country’s next-generation engines and launch New Shepard at our facility in West Texas at the world’s only privately owned and operated launch site. Our orbital launch vehicle, New Glenn, will come to life at the active rocket factory at Cape Canaveral, Florida, where we’re one of the only launch companies building right on the space coast.

New Graduate Engineers
We have many opportunities available to new graduates that strive to unlock the potential of every recently graduated engineer who starts at Blue Origin. Our New Graduate Rotation Program enables exceptional new graduate engineers to spend their first year at Blue rotating through three engineering teams and projects related to their skillset and interests. At the end of the year, Rotation Program engineers will transfer to a longer-term role with one of our engineering teams. Additionally, job listings designated as Early Career are also geared toward new graduates. Applicants are encouraged to apply to no more than three Early Career roles, including the Rotation Program, as they will be evaluated for that opportunity before being considered for other open positions.
Build The Future With Blue
Blue Origin believes in a future where millions of people are living and working in space. In order to preserve Earth, our home, for our grandchildren’s grandchildren, we must go to space to tap its unlimited resources and energy. If we can lower the cost of access to space with reusable launch vehicles, we can all enable this dynamic future for humanity. Blue is building a road - so your children can build the future.
