Inspiring the Next Generation of Rocketeers

Like many people, the end of the year is always a time where I find myself reflecting on the past year’s successes and looking ahead in anticipation of the goals we’ll achieve. While I’ve talked about Rocket’s exciting next chapter and have often discussed our vision internally, I recently had the opportunity to share our […]

Think globally, win locally

From powering everyday tasks like drawing money from ATMs, to saving lives by ensuring that 911 calls are routed to the proper call center, Rocket builds software that addresses real world problems. We’re strong believers in creating solutions that matter, and most importantly, helping those in our community achieve greatness. For nearly 30 years, we […]

Rocket.Build Community: A new global tradition

First, there was Rocket Community Day. Now, there is Rocket Community month. On Saturday, April 13th, the very first Rocket.Build Community hackathon began at the Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA. Over 100 students from half-a-dozen local universities locked themselves in for 24 hours to work on projects meant to benefit the Boston-area. With […]

Open Sesame!

It’s not exactly news to anyone that Rocket loves the IBM mainframe. Same goes for me. I started my career working on mainframe computers, and for nearly three decades I’ve run Rocket with the goal of solving hard, technical problems for IBM mainframe customers. I’ve seen a lot of changes over the years, but in […]

Rocket Gives Back to the Community – Community Day 2017

I have been looking forward to Rocket Community Day all year long. Since joining Rocket 11 months ago, I’ve heard many things about this favorite annual volunteer event; stories of coworkers crawling into soup kitchen ovens, others who worked out retired greyhounds, or decorated children’s hospital floors, and some who cried through 5 hours of […]

Putting our values to work at the inaugural President’s Advisory Council

Just about every company has some sort of company values statement in place, but it can be difficult to transform aspirational  words into day-to-day operations. That’s why the Rocket leadership team spends so much time figuring out how to make our mission ring true. One of our key values reads “Putting Customers and Partners First.” […]

The Rocket Band

This is your song…

It’s hard to believe that it’s only the second day of InterConnect. So much is going on here that it feels like the Rocket team has already been here for weeks! There’s so much to talk about (you can read about it from the Rocketeers who are blogging and tweeting from the expo floor, sessions, […]

The Rocket Japan team helps to promote young women in Engineering

The 5th World Engineering Conference and Convention (WECC2015) was held November 29 through December 2, 2015, in Kyoto, Japan. Held once every four years, WECC is the international flagship event of World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO). The main theme of WECC2015 was “Engineering: Innovation and Society.” Thousands of engineers, researchers, professors, and students met […]

Rocket Software is making a difference in our community

As we wrap up our annual Leadership Summit, we decided to once again make the final day something really special by encouraging our participants to get out in the community and volunteer. Whether they were scrubbing floors, mentoring young adults, or cleaning out horse paddocks (seriously!), more than 300 Rocketeers–and 100 of their significant others–from […]

Rocket Band Practice

The Rocket Band is bigger and badder than ever!

It’s no secret that music is a big part of our Rocket culture. From our custom Rocketcaster guitars built by our own Steve Bice to the music gear in our Executive Briefing Center in Waltham to informal jam sessions to gigs at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, we just like to play music. […]
