WHY WORK AT
VIRGIN ORBIT?

Perhaps this answer is obvious, since we work in a literal rocket factory — and not just any rocket factory, Richard Branson's rocket factory.

But as cool as the setting is, we think the real reasons to work here are the mission, the values, and the team. If you believe that space has something to offer the 7 billion people here on planet Earth, and if you believe that space access must improve in order for that to really happen, then you'd be an awesome addition to our team.

Oh, and because we do work for Richard Branson, you can bet that we offer a competitive salaries with 401K and employee stock options, essential health and wellness benefits, meaningful paid time off programs, and more.

Plus! You'll be immersed in a stellar learning environment, where the classic Virgin culture and that new startup feel come together.
