Are you passionate about human space exploration or understanding the origins of the universe, and working with a
dynamic and diverse team to make a difference? If you are, we need you!
We need your commitment, teamwork, and energy to help us achieve great things that inspire humans all over the globe.
We need you to bring innovative ideas and diverse backgrounds to help us envision, shape, and deliver systems that will
benefit the quality of life of people around the world. We are excited about what we do, and we need you on our team
as we take on new challenges for NASAs pursuits in deep space exploration. Jacobs is NASAs largest engineering
solutions provider working alongside NASA at centers across the United States.
We have the unique and significant role to partner with NASA at Johnson Space Center (JSC), to be part of every human
spaceflight program the International Space Station (ISS), NASAs Orion spacecraft, which will carry astronauts into
deep space, and Gateway, the orbiting platform providing the home for astronauts to work and travel back and forth to
the moons surface, and serving as the platform for deep space exploration. From critical systems on the ISS to enable
astronauts to live and work in space; to performing advanced development for systems leading to deep space exploration;
to being part of the foundation for Gateway.
We also partner with NASA at JSC, the only NASA center in the United States to curate all astromaterial samples
returned from exploration missions, to perform curation services, orbital debris analysis, and basic research to further
humankinds understanding of the origins of our solar system.
We need you to be a part of our team!
