"I usually compare working here to having a group of friends and we're all helping to restore a classic car in one of our buddies' garages.......except it's a freakin' rocket engine!"
Senior Propulsion Analysis Engineer
"There's much to love about working at Ursa, but one of the highlights is the fact that the leadership team actively works at building a great culture. Every other company I worked at before took a passive approach to their culture, and tolerated the state they randomly ended up with. Ursa's leadership has a diverse background spanning new and old aerospace, and they strive to combine the best elements of their previous experiences, while avoiding the weaknesses they have identified elsewhere. The result of this effort is a fast-paced, exciting work environment in which a highly talented team truly pulls in the same direction without the negative competitive elements that seem to creep into so many workplaces. Going to work at Ursa is something you can look forward to every single morning... and unfortunately that doesn't seem to be something you can say for many other companies.
For younger candidates out there thinking about where to intern or start their careers, there are few other places I would recommend more highly. Having a relatively small team means you will wear multiple hats as you support various roles for each of our engines. To put it into perspective, even the 'new space' launch providers have rocket engine design teams that are 5-10x larger than Ursa's. This means much less work to go around. Between the great mentorship offered by senior members of the team and the huge variety of work you will support, Ursa will offer far more learning opportunities than just about any other engineering firm out there; as you will find out over time, knowledge is the true differentiator when it comes to standing out among the industry."

"We have a lot of passionate people working here and a lot of pride is taken in the work we do. We are all fully committed to the success of the company and with that, the success of the individuals working here. There is a strong culture of teamwork and supporting each other and that inevitably leads to a very close-knit group. Since we are still a pretty small company, there is a wide range of work and options for people to work on. Individuals have real input into their career path and what they work on which allows individuals and the company to continue growing and improving. We have very knowledgeable people here and I feel very fortunate to be able to learn from the experts around me."
