Senior Full Stack Software Engineer

Information Technology - Applications Development

SpaceX was founded under the belief that a future where humanity is out exploring the stars is fundamentally more exciting than one where we are not. Today SpaceX is actively developing the technologies to make this possible, with the ultimate goal of enabling human life on Mars.


The Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) team writes the software that builds rockets and powers SpaceX. We are a dynamic, highly iterative community responsible for all of the software on the factory floor, the warehouses, the financial systems, the supply chain systems, and more. Elon has called us the "nervous system" of SpaceX because we connect all of the other teams at SpaceX to ensure that the entire rocket building process runs smoothly.

Our applications are written in: ASP.NET, C#, SQL Server, AngularJS, and TypeScript, but we don’t require experience in a specific language as long as you possess core computer science fundamentals in full stack development. Are you comfortable tackling new problems and innovating solutions? Do you love interacting with every facet of a business? Do you consider yourself creative, motivated, and able to take ownership of the applications you build? If this sounds like you, you can help us get to Mars!
