We operate as a distributed team and are committed to hiring the best people who are excited to build, learn and make their time at Loft the most fulfilling period of their career.

We realize sometimes the best people for a job can’t move to one of these places or may not "check all the boxes", so we strongly encourage you to still apply as we are rapidly scaling up across teams.

Meet the team

I was given the opportunity to attend a vibe and TVAC test campaign last year for a few components that are now integrated into YAM-6, Loft Orbital's first virtual mission-enabled satellite.

That one campaign blossomed into a new love and appreciation for Assembly, Integration, and Test (AIT). From then on, I've been heavily involved in AIT for YAM-6.

Katie Armstrong

Satellite systems engineer at Colorado, US

Growth and opportunities have defined my experience at Loft. I’ve had the chance to learn software development while working on Cockpit, our mission control system. At the same time, I’ve been training for satellite operations and, a couple of months later, led the commissioning of YAM-6, our spacecraft dedicated to virtual missions. Now, most of my days are spent piloting and debugging satellites. What sets Loft apart is definitely its people and the incredible team I have the privilege to work with.

Emma Vatine

Software Engineer at Toulouse, FR

I’ve worked on developing our Longbow vehicle, mission architectures and power products for nearly my entire time at Loft. Being trusted with the responsibility to technically own and drive these products and the missions they fly on has been very rewarding.

As part of that level of responsibility, I’ve been able to take a product from concept to design, manufacturing, test and then on orbit operation. I have working hardware on orbit, and that’s pretty incredible.

Matthew Glazer

Senior Electrical Engineer at Colorado, US

Being able to imagine, design, build, ground test, launch and operate a satellite in orbit in around a year? And all with state-of-the-art space technology?
That's the chance I had on YAM6 before I was able to take on wider responsibilities for developing the system engineering activities of our in-orbit infrastructure.
Brilliant people, incredible values, intercultural relationships, varied and exciting career opportunities - that's Loft Orbital. So happy to be part of the adventure !

Arnaud Varinois

Director of satellite systems engineering at Toulouse, FR

Being appointed as the Payload Commissioning Lead for YAM-7 marks a significant milestone in my career. It's my first experience in collaborating with a customer to develop a payload commissioning plan and build the ground infrastructure tools needed. Despite its challenges, this role has been immensely fulfilling.

I'm grateful for the incredible team at Loft and their unwavering trust and support in my abilities and professional development.

Isabella Acevedo-Rodriguez

Satellite Operations Customer Engineer at Toulouse, FR

The opportunities I have had here to grow at Loft as an engineer and a leader are unparalleled, from developing features for Cockpit—our mission control system—while being a flight director for our in-orbit satellites, to becoming the Commissioning Lead for YAM-7. Loft is a place where enthusiasm and principled engineering thrive, and where innovative work and experiences are boundless.

Brunston Poon

Space Infrastructure Software Engineer at Toulouse, FR

It’s hard to find the overlap of a great location, an amazing team, an incredible product and a job where you are excited to do it every day; and I’m exceptionally lucky I found that at Loft Federal. I get to apply all of my skills and experience from my Marine Corps career and my time in industry to a fascinating product with a great group of people who are some of the most motivated, dedicated, knowledgeable and skillful teammates with whom I’ve had the opportunity to work.

Nick Vidulich

Director of security and FSO at Loft Federal

I recently assisted with the assembly of my team’s new test bench in our San Francisco lab. The dynamic infrastructure designed by the Test Infrastructure Team allows for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) tests to be performed for multiple programs on a single test bench. This project allowed me to learn about our satellite architectures from a really interesting and unique perspective.

I'm extremely appreciative of the simultaneously supportive & challenging culture at Loft. My team in particular has always made me feel like my work is both valued and important and I think that's special.

Danielle Liut

Test Infrastructure Engineer at San Francisco, US

I absolutely love being part of the Loft Federal team—it's like being part of a big, brilliant family! Everyone here is not only incredibly smart but also super effective at what they do. We get to work on mind-blowing projects in aerospace, like building satellites that are literally changing the game.

It's not your typical 9-to-5. Every day brings something new and exciting, and we're constantly pushing boundaries in technology. The teamwork and camaraderie here make work feel like a fun adventure.
