Why Astronautics?

Astronautics Corporation of America was founded more than 50 years ago with the desire to push the boundaries of technology and innovation. That same passion drives our employees today.

We are a mid-sized aerospace company headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a vibrant community where you can live, work and relax.

According to the Milwaukee Business Journal’s 2017 Book of Lists, Astronautics is a top-five software product company, one of the largest privately-held Milwaukee-based organizations, and a leading manufacturing firm.

We’re big enough to take on the most difficult and challenging projects, but we’re small enough to keep every employee involved on many levels – right from the start.

At Astronautics, you will be part of a team of people that work together to create sophisticated avionics and systems for the aerospace industry.

As a member of the Astronautics team, your work will impact and touch multiple business functions and people.  For example, as an engineer you will be involved in all phases of a product’s development: from proposal, design, development, testing, and manufacturing, to marketing.  Your career is what you want to make of it.

We value people with analytical skills, creativity and energy.  We encourage employees to evaluate existing processes and procedures and question whether we can do things differently or better.

We design and develop exciting cutting edge technology for the aerospace industry.  Our electronic flight bag is standard equipment on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and our network server system is standard on the Airbus A400M.

We strive to give every employee the opportunity to realize his or her full potential.  We value performance while celebrating success.

We invest in our people with training, career growth assignments, and promotional opportunities, as well as a generous tuition reimbursement program. Our investment in development is the foundation of our success.
Our talented diverse workforce of seasoned professionals, many with 30 to 40 years of service, have continued to advance their careers through building news skills needed for the broader technical and leadership roles they hold today.  This value of continuous learning has passed on from each generation and continues today with mentoring opportunities to newer employees with bright futures.

Why do people stay at Astronautics?

It’s simple: The work and the people.

We design and manufacture exciting products for an exciting industry. We do this with colleagues who share the same passion for problem-solving excellence.

Our workforce also loves our community.
