...SpaceX is looking to fill a whopping 473 open positions at posts around the United States. A great majority, 313, of these positions are at the company’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California. Other locations include posts on both coasts of the U.S., as well as in Texas and Washington D.C.

The jobs run the gamut of experience, from highly skilled engineering positions that require advanced degrees in astronautics, mechanical engineering, or physics to experienced line cooks looking to feed the bodies that hold the brains of rocket scientists. According to Business Insider, “About half of the positions call for engineers, 33% for technicians, 5% for machinists, 5% for specialists, 5% for managers, and 1% for directors,” ...

Elon Musk’s SpaceX Just Announced Hundreds of Open Positions

Attention adventurers!

Sounds like there's something for everyone interested in space travel - from cooks to engineers. The new positions probably don't involve actual space travel, but this is still really exciting.

And getting a foot in the door early can't hurt, right?

Nice, I should apply!

On second thought, My engineering will differ greatly from what they will be looking for.
But if they need something designed to be blown up in the future, I'm their guy!

If any of those positions let me leave this planet I'm down.

I've actually been saving up money to go to space. While it's insanely expensive right now, I'm hoping that as time goes by it'll get cheaper.

Maybe in the future what I want to do and reality can meet somewhere in the middle.

I would love to work for Musk, even being he demands endless hours spent at work to stay involved with his new ventures. I also chose to avoid a degree that an employer doesn't pay for while I work for them, and its really tough to get any job without a degree.

I initially tried to get in with Tesla... even a dealer. I think I figured out how to run their drive trains on a continuous loop charging network that allows for electric cars to be driven for an infinite number of miles without having to plug into an electrical charging outlet.

Unless one is interested in 60 hour plus work weeks, I'd not even apply. Musk operations are high demand.

Come to texas. Theres a spacex right down the road in mcgregor. Get you an entry level job then work your way up the ladder. Soon youll be zipping around the cosmos. Im picturing you as george jetson right now

Just sent in my application as a media contractor. We already have two space port here in NM that I have worked at doing other projects both commercials and feature movies.

Livin the dream....

So you are the one who faked the moon landings. Commercials and movies.

I would not apply for these jobs when you come out with this sort of nonsense.

I agree... I will store my craziness on the shelf.

I love crazy ... just you do have to worry about the physics.

Unless you have something new perhaps that will put science on its collective ear.

That would be something.

No but worked on this one last year at our space port .

Well I can claim I got my name on Mars before Elon Musk. JPL included it on a chip with the first rover mission. Before I changed majors from aerospace engineering to industrial, I worked on a Mars flyer project, all theoretical with solar power wings. I wondered if they could build a miniature solar powered airplane for Mars instead of a rover mission. It's nice that they are hiring several engineers.

There's no way in hell I'd post on here how its implemented. I am not a scholar, and have zero care for recognition or finances. Ohm's law is self feeding beyond the constraints of physics that we currently utilize... it's feasible in my mind for not only the physics restraints be overcome, but overcome to the point of which power generation occurs as a vehicle emission. I have already conceded that I will simply smirk when another pulls the plug on the battery recharging... I have my mind on smiles instead of technology anymore.

I must admit that resistors are interesting little devices if one looks at conservation of mass, velocity and charge.

I know where you are coming from and the only question is ... have you proof?

Would be very interesting.

Hahaha... no, I do not have a car in my garage that does what I concept. A good portion of the systems are not electrically concentrated, and instead remove physics from the equations. The systems are already in vehicles... scattered around different makes/models... my visions are unique in that I seen a successful application of a system that steers mechanical output and don't understand how the battery charging applications were missed along the way. It's a grid that is easy and manageable in my mind... that even has back up measures if dynamics fall short of goals.

The main end game... is cut the cord on the need for an outlet.

But for the same reasons the 90 MPG VW does not roam the roads of the U.S., we will not see plug-less charging; supposedly there is no market in the U.S. for a car that is so efficient.

My vehicle concepts aside, a variable resistor placed on all cars, and applying a railed ground network could easily provide autonomous function. If traveling from point A to point B on a grounded grid (capacitance), in a stable power source (car), the highway exits will pair the programmed resistance to not only keep the proper distances and travel speeds on the grid, but will move the cars around lanes naturally based on the resistors programmed ohmic values. Electricity takes the path of least resistance, so GPS steering, in my mind is a waste of accuracy. GPS can only triangulate at best... Ohm's law is always accurate to a much higher degree.

Honestly, just set me up with my RV to be autonomous and I will die a happy man. I have all but lost all faith that any and all created technologies will be used for nothing but negative influence. I enjoy rewiring my mind more than anything else these days... still working on a cluster of shorts in my left/right brain sector... no patents required!

I would rather work at NASA personally. The working conditions are much better for similar levels of pay.

I've heard a lot of horror stories from people who worked at SpaceX.

I've always wanted a scuba diving job with NASA or the ESA I'd love to work in one of their practise pools. Shame I'm not qualified in any special field of expertise to get a job with Musk
