Veterans and Military

Whether you’re a veteran, a military spouse, reserve member, or currently transitioning from active duty, SSAI offers opportunities to put your skills to work on the frontier of science and engineering.

At SSAI, our veterans work in a variety of capacities – from senior leadership, to engineering and research roles, to software and app development, to logistics, business development and administrative support. 

As a veteran, we value the unique experience you’ll bring to meeting our customers’ evolving needs.


SSAI’s Austin Conaty spent several years as a USAF Sergeant assigned to the Weather Squadron at Fort Richardson, Alaska before transitioning to a career as a scientific programmer/analyst. Austin now uses his skills that once provided weather support for the Army Helicopter unit during winter exercises to help NASA customers understand the impact of atmospheric changes on Earth.

Our Commitment to Supporting and Retaining Veterans

    We know that beginning a civilian career brings challenges. That’s why we’ve invested in creating programs to help make that transition easier. As a newly hired veteran, you’ll be paired with a mentor to help you quickly assimilate to the SSAI Team. Veteran-focused Employee Resource Groups also allow you to connect with SSAI colleagues with shared experiences.

In recognition of our ongoing efforts in recruiting, employing, and retaining our nation’s veterans, SSAI was recently awarded a HIRE Vets Medallion Award. We have also been a Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Certified Employer since 2017. We are honored to be creating a place where veterans feel supported and can apply their knowledge to important scientific missions for our customers.
