One of the most promising commercial space programs in the country is right here in King county. Blue Origin is the brainchild of Amazon (dot com) founder Jeff Bezos.
The front page of their website is a list of job announcements. So, if you happen to be (or want to be) in the Seattle area and want to be involved in what appears to be a very cool new space program, here's their posting. For the record, I am in no way affiliated with Amazon or Blue Origin, I just figured that some people who read this blog might actually be interested in the jobs posted here. No, I don't suspect that I'm the sort of Navigation and Control Engineer they're looking for. Alas. ;)
Blue Origin is hiring highly qualified and dedicated individuals. Our hiring bar is unabashedly extreme, and we insist on keeping our team size small. This means the person occupying each and every spot must be among the most technically gifted in his or her field. Other hiring criteria include:
- You must have a genuine passion for space. Without passion, you will find what we're trying to do too difficult. There are much easier jobs.
- You must want to work in a small company.
- We are building real hardware. This must excite you. You must be a builder.

- Aerodynamics Engineer
