At Firefly, we’re focused on making space attainable for everyone – including you! Each team member’s passion, dedication, and innovative ideas have a direct impact on fueling our successful trajectory into space.

Our Team

Headquartered in the Lone Star State, Firefly’s hardworking team reflects Texas’ GO BIG culture in everything we do. We build big, achieve big, and dream big. We’re building launch vehicles and spacecraft to provide more reliable and affordable space access. We’ve achieved some incredible wins with NASA, the U.S. Space Force, and key commercial customers, opening the door to some of the most exciting launches in the industry. And we’re dreaming bigger than this planet – Firefly has two upcoming missions to the Moon with even bigger ambitions to Mars, Venus, and beyond.

Our Purpose

Firefly’s purpose is to innovate with relentless courage to unlock space for humanity – in a way only Fireflies can.

“You miss all the shots you don’t take. If this is something that interests you, then apply. Being a dedicated, driven team player can carry you far. You can learn about rockets, it’s much harder to learn dedication and passion.”

– Meagan Roth, Sr. Director of Systems Engineering and Launch
