Breaking with Tradition
American aerospace is experiencing a renaissance – and among its leaders are the organizations and people who are breaking with tradition to reformulate and invigorate an industry. Employee-owned Millennium Space Systems is helping spearhead that change.
Millennium brings a unique and disciplined entrepreneurial culture to this space renaissance. We don't subscribe to the traditional thinking that cost and schedule are secondary attributes of space systems.
We bring a spirit of innovation and teamwork, coupled with a get-it-done approach to deliver solid, measurable results.
We are colleagues and fellow innovators; seasoned engineers, software developers, and technicians working together to deliver affordable solutions from inception through implementation; from fabrication through launch. We are enthusiastic partners looking for new team members who share our enthusiasm and dedication.
