Ropella Industry Expertise

As we move into a new age of space exploration that now includes private and commercial ventures, we are focused on supporting future exploration and growth through global acquisition and hiring within all areas of this exciting industry. By bringing together technology, science, and human innovation, new research breakthroughs and technologies are emerging at a never-before-seen rate. Hiring top talent is a number one priority for the companies and private equity firms we serve who address the needs of engineers, scientists, and allied professionals who conceive, develop, test, design, construct, and operate air and space vehicles, as well as all associated systems and subsystems that support this unique industry. As the commercial space travel industry becomes more prevalent, the companies we serve are focused on supporting the development of infrastructure to enable what is projected to become a $2.7 trillion dollar industry by the year 2045. For this reason, advancing scientific knowledge about space, Earth, biological and physical sciences, and promoting collaboration and ingenuity within the aerospace industry have become top priorities for future-focused companies around the world.
