SpaceX is a US based space technology company founded by its residing CEO
and CTO, Elon Musk, the former co-founder of PayPal. The company's goal is to
renew a sense of excellence in the space industry by disrupting the current
paradigm of complacency and replacing it with innovation and commercialized
price points; laying the foundation for a truly space-faring human civilization.
SpaceX builds rockets and spacecraft from the ground up; including electronics,
software, vehicle structures, and engines. In-house development includes
nearly all flight critical custom components amounting to approximately 85% of
our vehicles both by mass and by value. Our development and production
efforts represent some of the most dynamic and challenging technology
problems seen in any organization.
Our success is driven by a wide variety of engineering perspectives and
openness to all great ideas. We pride ourselves on being a meritocracy where
employees are defined by their capabilities and contributions, instead of title or
tenure. We are actively seeking the best and brightest minds from all industries
to continue to build our world class team.
Our employees thrive in a fast-paced engineering ecosystem focused on
innovation and high levels of personal responsibility. At SpaceX we cut through
the noise and believe in the essentials of hardcore engineering.
We build it, test it, and fly it.
Mission Assurance/Quality - SpaceX has a strong belief that launch vehicles and
spacecraft can be both cost effective and highly reliable. Our Mission
Assurance/Quality team is key to our pursuit of that goal and more specifically
also our pursuit of manned spaceflight. The department works in a cross-
functional fashion with all other technical teams on a variety of exciting
projects, and has great exposure to leadership and the organization as a whole.
