Build a meaningful career

Maxar internships, entry-level positions and career development programs help individuals take that first step toward their career goals. Whether you are a student, recent grad or young professional, we offer opportunities to help you gain experience and cultivate valuable skills.  

Our people, technologies and expertise in Space Infrastructure and Earth Intelligence deliver innovative solutions for critical commercial and government missions. 

Why I choose Maxar

“I love to program, but in my other internships, it felt like the ‘end-product’ would never contribute to the world in a meaningful way. Here at Maxar every day is another chance to make a lasting impact. I have played a significant role in developing StarOneD2’s Payload Model for our Dynamic Spacecraft Simulator. In the future, I hope to gain enough experience to serve as a mentor for new hires for the simulations team.”

“Even as an intern, I had a sense of ownership over my project. I designed an antenna deployment test fixture from the ground up. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to get creative in designing this fixture, and to have the satisfaction of seeing it fabricated.” 

Jonathan - Associate Mechanical Core Engineer  

B.S. Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Davis  

“I always loved space, and I knew that Maxar was the perfect place to be to change the future of space technology. I appreciate the community, opportunities to grow and learn, and the environment to expand my horizons. We make amazing products, but the day to day interactions with people make it even more worthwhile.”
