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.
SENIOR SOFTWARE ENGINEER (FULL STACK)
We are seeking a Senior Software Engineer (Full Stack) to build software used to design, develop, test, and launch rockets, spacecraft, and satellites.
