Lockheed Martin has 581 openings in the Dallas area as of this post. Might be worth taking a look to see if there’s a good fit. I’ve worked at the Missiles and Fire Control campus since 2017. I’m happy to answer questions about working there.


Small world Luke! I know someone at LM and was going to use him as a reference to apply for a visualization job there using Unreal Engine one time. They filled it before I could but I have had my eyes open ever since.

Update: I found a job!! Thanks every one for your help
