Road to the Red Planet
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.Careers University
From Automotive to Software Gaming to Electronics, SpaceX seeks the top talent on the planet.
Write code that autonomously pilots our vehicles in space, simulates countless flight scenarios, translates petabytes of data, performs computational fluid dynamics, and more.
Nearly every board and box that controls, communicates, actuates, or powers our avionics is built in-house employing the same iterative approach used in the commercial industries.
Our goal is to have the most mass-efficient primary and secondary structures possible while exceeding all factors of safety.
With Merlin, Draco, and Kestrel as flight-proven examples along with Super Draco and Raptor in development, you will not find a more robust engine development program in the world.
Launch & Test
We have built some of the most efficient launch facilities and a test facility in Texas that exceeds one engine test per day.
Leveraging best-practices from automotive, consumer electronics, and aerospace, we aim to scale our production rate beyond that of any other launch company in the world.
Supply Chain & Logistics
Controlling and tracking the delivery of everything from a tiny resistor on a circuit board to a 100+ foot rocket stage to the launch pad.
From the domes that form our tanks to the copper liners on a rocket engine, everything is forged, formed, and machined onsite.
You cannot build a great vehicle without great tools. From composite molds to robotic welding machines, this team makes the tools that makes our designs come to life.
Mission Assurance & Astronaut Safety
One day soon our vehicles will be piloting the next astronauts to space. This team ensures we are designing the absolute most reliable systems possible.
Sales & Mission Management
This team is responsible for providing the interface between our customers and our internal teams to make sure our customer's hardware gets to orbit safely and on-time.
From Finance to Human Resources to Facilities, these teams ensure the SpaceX enterprise runs smoothly on a day-to-day basis.
Information Systems Technology
Everything from our high-performance computing clusters to our business applications are developed using state-of-the-art technology.
We are SpaceX
SpaceX is like Special Forces… we do the missions that others think are impossible. We have goals that are absurdly ambitious by any reasonable standard, but we’re going to make them happen. We have the potential here at SpaceX to have an incredible effect on the future of humanity and life itself. — Elon Musk
