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.
As an engineer on the Space Operations Software team, you will build the mission critical applications and displays that are central to the way our in-space and human space missions are conducted. Our suite of applications directly supports SpaceX operation teams throughout mission preparation and execution to fly more frequently, safely, and reliably. In your role, you will engage with SpaceX engineers, operators, and flight crews to better understand their needs in order to create solutions that anticipate and solve the important problems they face. With a significant focus on simplicity and usability in our interfaces, your work will help revolutionize the way everyday spaceflight is conducted.
Aerospace experience is not required to be successful here – rather we look for smart, motivated, respectful, collaborative engineers who love solving problems and want to make an impact on a super inspiring mission. You will have full ownership of challenging problems, working with a team of enthusiastic engineers designing solutions that propel SpaceX toward our goals at a rapid pace. Mission success at SpaceX depends on the software you produce with the Space Operations Software team.
