Careers

Kepler is a company of bold innovators, futurists, and competent leaders. Emerging and embryonic technologies are the challenges that await for you. Working with minds that are boundless by the conventional wisdom to pursue a high scientific standard with the opportunity to be a part of something remarkable for humankind.

We are dedicated to going beyond the ‘knowable knowns and unknowns’; embarking upon challenges in areas from green energy, materials sciences, to alternative propulsion and everything in-between. 

Working with us as part of the Kepler Team, we will give you an opportunity to make a contribution on humanity, on our national security, the environment. 

Join us to boldly show your creativity, your ability, and to develop your leadership, business, and scientific skills.

Engineering

Join Kepler and have a chance to shape our future. Kepler offers a unique opportunity. We are not bound by the limits of conventional wisdom, yet we adhere strictly to the scientific method. We strive to be more than excellent we strive to be remarkable.

You might have a chance to develop truly new and breakthrough technologies, new propulsion, and transportation technologies.

Nuclear Sciences

We are advancing concepts in a novel and underdeveloped area of nuclear sciences. We have several key projects based upon existing successful concepts that we are ready to usher forward. 

We are looking for top-tier nuclear scientists that are experienced in developing Fusion and Fission models, as well as scientists and engineers specializing in nuclear sciences.

We are looking for energy and power engineers, high voltage electrical engineers, nuclear safety officers, nuclear chemists/materials specialists, and power plant design engineers with experience in the nuclear industry.

Kepler Energy is endeavoring to change the way humanity generates energy through our new approaches in hybrid reactor development.

Aerospace and Astronautics

We are advancing embryonic technologies in non-chemical propulsion schemes. Our vision is to develop new means of traversing the solar system. Coming aboard Kepler at this very exciting moment in time may enable you to develop new lifting platforms, evince new controls and flight systems for an entirely new form of propulsion, and to even work on technologies that will provide a new form of space drive.

We are actively searching out top-tier innovators, integrators and problem solvers in the disciplines of fluid dynamics, magneto-hydrodynamics, aerospace engineering (including flight and system controls, environmental systems, flight dynamics). 

We look forward to welcoming aboard the most talented aerospace engineering as we venture out into space together.

Applied and Theoretical Physics

Turning dreams into reality, we seek the most gifted thinkers. Kepler wants physicists who are not bound by either the conventional wisdom or by an inherent bias. If you are a free thinker, a dreamer, a problem solver and a unique mind in the world of physics, then we want you.

Join us and you may solve problems of unification, you could be the next one to discover a key physical trait of our universe that allows the next breakthrough for humanity. We encourage big thinking.

Materials Sciences

In this new venture, into a new technical territory, we rely heavily upon the innovators that will provide the materials making our innovations possible.

We are looking at exciting new developments in composites, nuclear materials, nano, and metamaterials. 

You may develop the next composite allowing for a whole new era in space travel, or in remediation of the environment; you could be the scientist to develop an entirely new material that makes consumer quantum computing possible.

General Administration and Facilities

Working for Kepler promotes a new era, whether you are a specialist in logistics, or accounting, security or maintenance, you will be respected and valued at Kepler. Your support and contribution to our work are what makes it possible for our work to continue in an easy and fluid manner. We respect that.

Come to join us to know that your contribution matters, that you are a part of something greater that will make humanity safer, happier, healthier and launch us on an adventure into the future.
