Space Foundation Employment - Twice 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.

Twice in four years, we have been designated by The NonProfit Times and Best Companies Group as among the 50 Best Non-Profit Organizations to Work for.
