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 SpaceX Intelligence Program leverages external and internal resources to identify threats that could disrupt or compromise any SpaceX operation. The program provides comprehensive and systematic analysis of all facets of SpaceX operations to ensure senior leadership is able to make the most effective risk based decisions possible. The Security Analyst is responsible for the research, analysis, production, and dissemination of information of relevance to protecting the safety and security of personnel, brand, global assets, and operations at SpaceX.

The Security Analyst is also responsible for supporting internal and external investigations, either stemming from the intel conducted or through other escalation protocols (e.g., Info Security, HR). The Security Analyst provides consistent review of all security related incidents across the enterprise (internal and external) while referencing monitoring data against indications and warnings benchmarks. The ideal candidate will possess the ability to understand and assess a person’s activity to help inform decisions regarding the application of protection strategies.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
