A thriving economy in space is needed to make life on Earth more vibrant, sustainable, and equitable. Space technology will enable global access to information, solutions to climate change, answers to global food security, products that transform healthcare, clean energy production, and more. Today, rocket launch options are slow, expensive, and unreliable. Stoke is building the world’s most efficient fully and rapidly reusable rocket designed to fly daily that will radically increase access to space and open up the space economy to safeguard our precious home, Earth.


Reusable systems are the key to seamlessly connecting Earth and space. A key ingredient to making the fabrication of such reusable systems feasible is a highly efficient internal company inventory system that acts to support the manufacture and assembly of designs quickly and accurately. As an Inventory Specialist you will be responsible for specifying, purchasing, and installing storage systems; purchasing common parts to maintain minimum on-hand quantities, conducting inventory input and kitting tasks, and fielding engineering requests with a strong service mindset.

Leveraging your previous experience, initiative, and resourcefulness you will develop and execute accurate plans while ensuring evolving company needs are met.
