Description: Are you ready to take your career to a new level and work at an extraordinary company?

The coolest jobs on this planet… or any other… are with Lockheed Martin Space.

Defending against modern day missile threats requires constant collaboration and innovation. That’s why we’re able to integrate systems from end to end so you can detect, control and engage the full spectrum of missile threats across every domain. It’s why we’re investing in disruptive technology like directed energy, space-based capabilities and solid state radar to create layers of defense that help keep us all safe.

Shooting a missile down with a missile was once a concept only dreamed up in science fiction novels. We’ve made it scientific fact!

So what does it take to spot an enemy missile launch, identify its intended target, calculate its exact trajectory, launch an interceptor and guide it to destroy the threat in mid-air? All in a matter of seconds? It’s not easy – but at Lockheed Martin, we help customers solve the world’s most complex challenges.
