Internships and Co-Ops | Vandenberg, CA, United States
SpaceX is a US based advanced technology company founded by residing CEO and CTO, Elon Musk. SpaceX builds rockets and spacecraft from the ground up; including electronics, software, vehicle structures, and engines. Our development and production efforts represent some of the most dynamic and challenging technology and engineering systems in the world.
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 and technologies to continue to build our world class team.
Our employees thrive in a fast-paced environment 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.
Who we are looking for:
- Students majoring in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering or Information Technology who are available to work at our launch facility in Vandenberg, CA full-time for the Spring 2013 semester.
- Someone who has had previous internships in an IT Support, Systems, or Data Storage role or significant information technology-related project work in or outside of school.
- 3.0 GPA or higher.
- Strong interest in the following technologies: Linux, Windows, laptops, workstations, servers, data storage, and virtualization.
- A student who is ready to work hard and make meaningful contributions to a professional team while gaining invaluable experience.
A little bit about us:
Here at SpaceX, you will obtain invaluable hands-on technical experience that you can't learn in a classroom. Our engineers will help you to roll up your sleeves and apply text book theory and lab experience to creating solutions for real aerospace and technology challenges. You will gain practical experience by participating in actual software and system development projects.
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 80% of our vehicles by value.
The company's mission is to revolutionize space access by increasing reliability and reducing cost, eventually by a factor of ten. Our current product line includes the Falcon family of launch vehicles and the Dragon spacecraft.
Falcon rockets provide the lowest-cost per-kilogram for space access and can be used for both low and geosynchronous earth orbits. Dragon is designed to be manned-flight rated and can be configured as a transportation capsule or an in-orbit platform called DragonLab.
Our employees thrive in a fast-paced engineering ecosystem focused on innovation with 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.
