Be bold. Do great things. Make the world a better place.









Where Technology Meets Creativity

From space exploration and cybersecurity to air and missile defense, artificial intelligence, and more, our work is at the cutting edge of scientific innovation. We’re always looking for great people to join our team. Whether your expertise involves technology and research or business operations, we have a place for you at APL.

I think the work environment at APL is very welcoming, and it’s definitely unlike any other type of work experience I’ve had. This feels almost like an extension of academia. To keep learning for the rest of my life, but taking it to another caliber is awesome to me. I really could not have envisioned a better scenario.
