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.

Electromagnetic Environmental Effects Engineer II

Our Electromagnetic Environmental Effects team works to ensure our avionics hardware will perform when integrated into a complex and delicate system of both sensitive and high-power avionics that must operate through some of the harshest electromagnetic environments imaginable. The team performs exhaustive avionics analysis, design, and test at the board, unit, subsystem, and system levels with work that reaches out to almost all of the departments at SpaceX.  As such, they work closely with a significant number of teams within the company, most amounting to: the hardware design teams, production teams, structures teams, propulsion teams, launch, and mission management teams.  They are one of the few teams that interface with almost all aspects of the company as well as getting significant hands on time with flight hardware. They play a crucial role in the development of our systems particularly as we advance our efforts towards satellites and creating safe, reliable, inexpensive, and innovative systems that push the boundaries in size and mass.
