Moog – Why Work With Us?

The Moog Story

Over sixty years ago, we started as designer and supplier of aircraft and missile components.

Our history began when our founder, Bill Moog, developed the electro-hydraulic servovalve, a device that translates tiny, electrical impulses into precise and powerful movement. In July of 1951, Bill, his brother Arthur, and friend Lou Geyer, rented a corner of the abandoned Proner Airport in East Aurora, N.Y., a suburb of Buffalo, and formed the Moog Valve Company.

The first order for four valves was sold to Bendix Aviation. Larger orders followed from Boeing and Convair. The servovalve revolutionized the aerospace industry and led to the creation of Moog Inc. By 1954, Moog valves were standard equipment on about half of all US fighter planes and more than 70% of all guided missiles. In the aerospace arena, our engineers designed and manufactured the actuators on the Saturn C-5 rocket that carried Neil Armstrong to his historic first step on the moon in July 1969.

Today, we’re a world class, over $2 billion company operating in more than 26 countries, and with customers in over 90 countries. Our cutting-edge motion control technology enhances performance in a variety of markets and applications, from commercial aircraft cockpits, to power-generation turbines, to Formula One racing, to medical infusion systems.

Bill Moog's sense of innovation went far beyond product design. He had some unique ideas about a "better way" to run a Company -- treating employees with trust and respect. These simple ideas laid the foundation for what would eventually become part of Moog's much-acclaimed work environment and culture.


What other companies are now just discovering, we have known all along -- that people work best in an environment where they feel valued, involved and empowered.


As Bill Moog once said, "We believe in the people who work here.... having trust and confidence in our people is the only way we know."

That was true in 1951 when Moog was founded, and it’s still embedded in the way we do business today. The quality, innovation and commitment to service that our customers have come to expect is due to our culture and the people who live it. At Moog, we empower and inspire our people to achieve remarkable things. Our environment is built on collaboration, trust and open communication. It’s what attracts the best to our company and it’s the reason they stay with us.

Our Values:

Trust is a Must

Competence is King

We Try Harder

We’re All in This Together

It’s My Job

We Look for Solutions, Not Someone to Blame

Communication is Crucial

Formality Doesn’t Help

We Have to be Adaptable and Ready to Change

Performance and Commitment Should be Rewarded

Work Should be an Enjoyable Experience


Your Personal Life is Important

The people who work for us are the power and energy behind everything we do – so we're committed to investing in them with a comprehensive benefits package. We believe your personal life is important, and our benefits reflect that.

As a global organization, some of our benefits vary from location to location – but wherever we are, Moog has benefits to support your health, well-being and financial security. These range from comprehensive health programs, to retirement plans, to recreational activities, and of course, vacation time.

Because we think it's so valuable to get along well together, we also organize fun activities, from holiday gatherings to picnics to sporting events. To encourage personal and professional development, many locations offer assistance with tuition for advanced degrees.

We believe in doing the right thing.

The way we do things is just as important as what we produce. From the beginning, when our founders risked their careers on one good idea, our company philosophy has always been to encourage people to stand up and try something new. This approach is as revolutionary today as it was almost 60 years ago.

Our business is built on that kind of courage – and our continuing growth depends on it. Our people know that, no matter what, they can trust us to back them up when they stick their necks out to make things better. We think that creating a supportive culture where people feel free to make their own decisions is inextricably linked to producing a better product for our customers.

We do what we think is right, on every job, every day. And with thousands of the world's sharpest and most talented engineers and technologists employed worldwide and an average length of service of over ten years, ours seems to be the right approach for a lot of people.

At Moog, we are focusing on innovation more than ever. We are investing in future technologies that we believe will have a great impact in the aircraft, space, defense, industrial, and medical industries.

To accomplish remarkable things, we need the talent to match. That’s where you come in.
