Aerospace graduate opportunities are now available across disciplines in our in-space propulsion and spaceplane programmes.

What will set you apart?

Give us examples of real things you have built (including software if relevant) or other exceptional accomplishments and how you achieved these things when few others would have. These projects may or may not have been part of your degree/study. Emphasise the creativity in what you built. Be specific in your application.

  • You have just completed your studies towards Aerospace, Mechanical, Mechatronics, Electrical or Software Engineering, Computer Science, Data Science, Maths, Physics or Chemistry. If your qualification is not listed here but you think you have what it takes, please still apply.
  • You have hands-on experience building things that fly, or other high-performance vehicles, or have otherwise demonstrated exceptional capability.
  • Post grad applicants are also welcome.
  • You have strong interpersonal skills and ability to work effectively in a team environment, accomplishing tasks with limited resources at a rapid pace.


Not-so-fun fact: Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet about 60% of job criteria, women and other marginalised groups tend to apply only when they check every box. So if you think you have what it takes, but are not sure that you check every box, we still want to hear from you.

About Dawn Aerospace

Every week we see new companies coming to market, using space-based technology in new and exciting ways we had never before imagined. Our industry is at the same inflexion point the internet was back when we went from dial-up to broadband, but there are some significant hurdles to overcome.

Dawn Aerospace was founded to redefine near-space transportation. Redefine how we deliver assets to space, position satellites on orbit and return things down to Earth to enable the vibrant and circular space economy of the future. To do this, we build scalable, accessible and sustainable spaceflight technologies – technologies that are sustainable for not just the foreseeable future, but the unforeseeable future.

Dawn Aerospace is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Employment with Dawn is decided based on merit, competence and qualifications and will not be influenced in any other manner.
