Job Details

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.

SR. SITE RELIABILITY ENGINEER), DATA (APPLICATION SOFTWARE)

The application software team is the central nervous system of SpaceX - we create mission critical applications that are used throughout SpaceX to accelerate launch vehicle production and flight as well as systems that allow Starlink to grow into a worldwide fast, reliable Internet service. Our missions support scientific research, classified national security space, and commercial opportunities. Software engineering and innovation is at the core of these programs.

Our team is currently creating and evolving systems to enable rapid build and reuse of Starship as well as scaling the Starlink network. We have built systems to support concurrent streams of data from many always-on assets to manage the world's largest satellite constellation and the world's largest rocket. We work directly with engineers across all programs to enable and accelerate the success of Starlink, Starlink, and Starshield.

Aerospace experience is not required to be successful here - rather we look for smart, motivated, collaborative site reliability 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 to design and produce solutions that enable SpaceX to move towards our goals at a rapid pace. The success of the missions at SpaceX depends on the software that you and your team produce.
