We need forward thinkers who can recover material shortages on purchased and fabricated parts by working cross-functionally to come up with creative solutions. One must also be able to analyze and interpret data and report to senior leadership to influence the organization. Help us build rockets reliably, cost-efficiently, and on-time!


* Bachelor's degree in supply chain, business, engineering, or similar technical discipline
* 2+ years of professional experience in material planning, operations management, supply chain management, or master scheduling; or 2+ years of applicable internship experience in the same fields
