Do you want to change our world by sending humans to another one?

Now is the time.

At Lockheed Martin Space, we've been robotically exploring the solar system for decades. We've been on Mars for over 40 years starting with Viking, and we're the only company in the world that has helped NASA visit as many planets, moon, and asteroids.

Today we're preparing to send humans out to those deep space destinations. We're looking for energetic and passionate people with the skills required to help write a new chapter in human history: returning to the Moon and beginning the human exploration of the Martian system.

We are closer to Mars today than we were to the Moon in 1961; we have the technology and know-how to achieve the greatest feat of exploration in human history. And we need you to make it happen.

Centers for Software Innovation (CfSI)

Today's emerging commercial space market requires revolutionary new approaches to system development, test, and integration. Designers and developers can no longer toil away in "cube farm" isolation – collaboration, agility, and lightweight development processes are the hallmarks for success. Lockheed Martin's new Centers for Software Innovation (CfSI) are revolutionary workplaces reflective of today's workforce.

With open areas facilitating collaboration, hardware-rich integration environments, and state of the art connectivity to other worksites using virtual and augmented reality, the LM CfSI workplaces will allow the next generation of engineers to develop their skills, grow their careers, and make unprecedented impacts on humanity's exploration of the solar system. CfSI sites are being established in Colorado and Texas, with more on the way.
