Discover what you'reMADE OF


At JPL we ask the biggest questions, then search the universe for answers—literally. We build upon ideas that have guided generations, then share new discoveries to inspire generations to come. The more we learn about our universe, the more we discover about ourselves. So, what kinds of people make the best JPLers? Every kind—though we do tend to have a few things in common:

OUR MISSION is bigger than
all of us


You could say our mission is as big as space. Our discoveries in technology and space exploration advance humanity in many directions. We are creating new solutions, new potential, and even new ways of seeing the universe and life itself. If that sounds a little grandiose, it’s because it is.

We're not
just dreamers,
WE'RE
DOERS


The bigger your imagination, the better you’ll like it here. Just remember, we don’t stop at imagining big things—we make them happen. Some people are visionary and some people are pragmatic, but we need to be 100% both. So now that you have dreamed it, how will you make it so?

We likeIMPOSSIBLE


To us, insurmountable odds aren’t frustrating—they’re stimulating. Pursuing solutions is an obsession with us. It’s why we get out of bed. And the more challenging the struggle, the more amazing it feels when that solution is at hand.

We always have MORE TO LEARN


It’s impossible to know everything, but that doesn’t stop us from trying. We crave knowledge, and we’re always looking for the chance to learn something new. That’s just how we’re wired. Fortunately, it’s also one of the things that makes us great at what we do.

We're in it FOR THE
JOURNEY


A longer journey takes us more places we’ve never been. We discover things most people will never see, and we grow more committed to the destination. More invested. Sometimes a little possessive. Nothing is going to pry us loose until we see what’s at the end of the journey.

We elevate the work by ELEVATING
EACH OTHER


We all have a vested interest in each other, because our mission won’t succeed unless we all succeed. It’s a simple reality with a powerful effect—when you need help, it will always be there. Because what elevates one, will elevate us all.
