Space Foundation Employment - Three Times Named Among 50 Best Nonprofit Organizations to Work for
Employment with the Space Foundation combines a dynamic, professional environment with a meaningful mission: to advance space-related endeavors to inspire, enable and propel humanity.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit with a strong work ethic, challenging objectives, a talented and dedicated team and frequent interaction with global space leaders, space agencies and aerospace companies. Because we are small, our team members have ample opportunities to stretch and grow and everyone is directly involved in our strategic endeavors.
The Space Foundation is a great place to work; consequently, job openings are somewhat infrequent. But, we are growing and, as we grow, new opportunities do arise.
Three times in six years, we have been designated by The NonProfit Times and Best Companies Group as among the 50 Best Non-Profit Organizations to Work for.
"I am very proud of our Space Foundation team. They are the heart of all that we do, and their professionalism and dedication make our organization exceptional. We strive for work-life balance, in spite of our rapid growth, and we give our team members opportunity to grow with the organization."
- Elliot Pulham, Space Foundation Chief Executive Office
