Virgin Orbit is seeking a new member for our team to serve as Communications Officer—someone who can help us tell our story to the world at large and to our colleagues here in the company.
A key part of our quest to boost imaginations and to launch the small satellite revolution is telling the story of what we’re doing. From the shop floor of our rocket factory to the mind-boggling missions being undertaken by our customers’ satellites, there are plenty of great stories to tell; and we’re committed to sharing them in an open, transparent, and inclusive way.
If you join us in this position, you will make a major contribution to the way we communicate with the world at large. This will include both traditional and social media. In the past, we haven’t been very active on social media in particular—we’ve been kind of busy, you know, building rockets—but now, as we prepare to enter into routine commercial service with LauncherOne, it’s time to change that. Additionally, this job will help us communicate internally. As a growing company with multiple locations and a broad and diverse range of roles and backgrounds, it’s important that we clearly communicate what we’re doing, what comes next, where we have room for improvement, where we can celebrate challenges conquered and everything else.
We’ll bring the rockets, you bring a great work ethic, a love for space, and your internet credibility. Come be our Lt. Uhura! This is a great job for a space-lover who doesn’t necessarily need to have an engineering or science degree to make a meaningful contribution.
This is a full-time position at our rocket factory in beautiful Long Beach, California.
If you want to join us, you’d better have all of these…
… and you should probably have a bunch of these, too.

Our idea of a happy life: build rockets, work with brilliant people, serve purposeful customers, and open access to space. Sir Richard Branson’s belief is “If you get the perfect mix of people working for your company, you have a far greater chance of success.” From the very start, we have placed top priority on growing and fostering a team of creative, diverse, and talented women and men. In the words of Sir Richard Branson “We believe it’s better to have a hole in your team than an asshole in your team!”
