Company Overview

Our Vision

To Benefit Earth
Blue Origin was founded by Jeff Bezos with the vision of enabling a future where millions of people are living and working in space to benefit Earth. In order to preserve Earth, Blue Origin believes that humanity will need to expand, explore, find new energy and material resources, and move industries that stress Earth into space. Blue is working on this today by developing partially and fully reusable launch vehicles that are safe, low cost and serve the needs of all civil, commercial and defense customers.

Our Mission

Increase Access to Space Through Reusable Rockets
Blue’s efforts to fly astronauts to space on New Shepard, produce reusable liquid rocket engines, create a highly-reusable orbital launch vehicle with New Glenn and return Americans to the surface of the Moon—this time to stay—will add new chapters to the history of spaceflight and move us closer to fulfilling that founding vision. Everything we do follows our motto “Gradatim Ferociter” or “Step by Step Ferociously”.


Operational Reusability
True operational reusability is the only way to lower the cost of access to space. Both New Shepard and New Glenn have been designed with reusability in mind from the beginning. Their vertical take-off, vertical landing architecture enables us to reuse the first stage of our launch vehicles with minimal refurbishment. Both vehicles have throttleable liquid fueled engines allow for precision landing back on the landing platform. This allows for high asset utilization for all our vehicles which decreases the costs and increases availability for our customers.

Our Feather

The Perfection of Flight
The Blue Origin feather is a symbol of the perfection of flight. It represents freedom, exploration, mobility and progress. For thousands of years, we humans have been looking up at the birds and wondering what it would be like to fly. Now, we look up to the stars and pursue a bright future for all of us.

At Blue Origin, our genuine passion for space exploration is evident through the work we do. We’re looking for people who share that passion and want to turn their career into a calling. We’re shaping our future in space and we’re looking for dedicated and inspired people to join us.

If you share our dedication to thoughtful development and meticulous testing, there may be a fit for you at one of our locations across the country. Our engineering, manufacturing and business teams challenge the impossible every day in our 260,000-square-foot facility on 26 acres in Kent, Washington – just 20 minutes south of Seattle. We test the country’s next-generation engines and launch New Shepard at our facility in West Texas at the world’s only privately owned and operated launch site. Our orbital launch vehicle, New Glenn, will come to life at the active rocket factory at Cape Canaveral, Florida, where we’re one of the only launch companies building right on the space coast.

Build The Future With Blue
Blue Origin believes in a future where millions of people are living and working in space. In order to preserve Earth, our home, for our grandchildren’s grandchildren, we must go to space to tap its unlimited resources and energy. If we can lower the cost of access to space with reusable launch vehicles, we can all enable this dynamic future for humanity. Blue is building a road – so your children can build the future. Join us in this mission, and build the future with Blue.
