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

More progress on the MLV front! Our second composite tank barrel is off the automated fiber placement machine and on its way to the oven. These structures further validate our design as we ramp up manufacturing and testing for the first stage of Antares 330 and our Medium Launch Vehicle.

Reflecting on the incredible year and all the accomplishments by our hardworking team of Fireflies - from setting new records with a 24-hour launch, completing our first Miranda engine hot fire for our medium launch vehicle, doubling the size of our facilities, securing $300M+ in financing, and landing several new government and commercial customers. It has been an unprecedented year!

Looking forward to the start of this year. We will literally Launch, Land, and Orbit as we liftoff Alpha more frequently, prepare to land on the Moon, and fly our first on-orbit Elytra mission.

Firefly is GO for 2024! Happy New Year!
