If Space X is a career I'd be interested in, and I am just finishing up high school, what is a good path to get there? any other advice would also be appreciated. :)

A BS in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering would probably be a great start

Many young people (such as myself) dream of working on SpaceX one day. People who are just entering universities now and plan to apply for SpaceX in 5 to 10 years. How hard of a competition someone in this position should expect for a position?

He said in another reply that internship applications were "growing exponentially." I'd recommend trying to get an internship as early as possible: it makes it way easier to get another internship or a full-time position later (assuming you do well in the first one!).

How can a Canadian citizen like myself work at SpaceX? With ITAR it seems like it would be damn near impossible to even be considered

You need a US green card or citizenship. Non-ITAR employees at aerospace companies are virtually unheard-of.

I hope I'm not to late. How do I better my chances at working at Space X besides having good grades. I'm starting my bachlor's in ME next week.

Projects! Join a project team. Dig deep into it, become a technical lead for some system or subsystem, become an expert in it. SpaceX internship interviews focus on that experience above most other things.
August 3, 2016 on Reddit

Hi Brian, Curious as an engineer. What is your tech stack? Java, C++? Will you guys be collaborating with other companies like Boeing to reach the stars? Thank you!

Check out our opening for [Full-Stack Enterprise Developer](!

Hi Mr. Bjelde, I'm a junior in college, majoring in mechanical eng with a minor in aerospace. I'm currently at the lower end of Spacex's acceptance criteria GPA-wise. While I'll be working my hardest to raise that in the upcoming semesters, do you have any suggestions for getting noticed among the thousands of intern applications you receive? Without getting too resume-ish, I'm already in my school's aerospace group (who just launch a nanosat riding along with an ULA rocket) among other extra curriculars.

Get hands-on! Are you on a new project yet? Work your way up to a subsystem lead position and really dig down into the work. Be an expert in something. Spend a million hours on it.

Thanks for doing this AMA! My son is just going into high school and he is extremely interested in your industry. He is extremely proficient at the maths and sciences (not to mention extremely good looking lol). What paths does he need to take as he goes through high school and later on chooses a college and program? Do most people at SpaceX have the same type of degree? I saw where you are/were an aerospace engineer....did you get your masters in that or did you have to go all the way to your doctorate?? Thanks once again for doing this. *Edit: Also, we live not far from Titusville. Are there ever tours at the SpaceX facility like there are at Kennedy?

I'm not SpaceX HR, but I'm an aerospace engineer and can answer part of your question! Most SpaceX engineers--and aerospace industry engineers!--have degrees in Mechanical, Aerospace, Electrical, or Computer/Software Engineering (a.k.a. Computer Science). Specific coursework in high school isn't terribly important, as long as your son takes all the requirements for engineering schools and gets good grades in his classes. After that, focus on AP classes in order to get introductory college coursework out of the way, leaving time to take more interesting electives. Pick a good engineering school. Lots of ink has been spilled on this subject. During school, advanced coursework in specific fields your son finds interesting, as well as hands-on project experience (often called "project teams" in college) is super important, both for jobs at SpaceX and in the rest of the industry.

How would an aspiring engineer who is about to graduate with an electrical engineering degree go about cracking into the industry other than just simply applying to jobs?

Apply to *lots* of jobs ;) Seriously, though. Lots of jobs. Many aerospace HR departments feel like black holes where your resume can get swallowed up and never heard from again, so a lot of the time it comes down to a numbers game. Apply to every company that's hiring anything remotely close to what you want to do. And if you don't have much project experience, get some!

There's a potential upside to high turnover. SpaceX is essentially pulling in young STEM graduates obsessed with mars, running them through a couple years of bootcamp, and then flooding the rest of the industry with ambitious mars-obsessed employees looking for a slightly less intense long term career. After a couple decades, the other aerospace companies and NASA will be filled with martian missionaries with the dedication and skills to become the next generation of managers and leaders. Imagine what all of aerospace could do, focused on just 1 goal, instead of splintered among pet projects and mission directorates. Is this an effect SpaceX has considered, or is actively trying to maximize? Or is it just a happy coincidence?

I don't think SpaceX WANTS their workers to constantly leave and having to learn up new workers, so seems more likely it's a coincidence

Hi Brian, thanks for doing this AMA. I'm currently going back to school to study software engineering to hopefully work for SpaceX someday. I've been studying Python and C in my classes so far; what other kinds of software engineering skills does SpaceX value? What kinds of classes should I be looking at? Thank you so much!

My best advice is to browse our current [software openings]( to learn more about the specific skillsets we're seeking. Starting a passion project and/or writing code above and beyond your required coursework is the best way to stand out!

Hello Brian, thanks for doing this! I'm looking at becoming an engineer, and my dream would be to get a job at SpaceX or NASA or some other company associated with the aerospace industry, but I'm not exactly sure what to major in. What types of engineers (I realize aerospace engineers, but beyond that) are most in demand right now amongst aerospace companies, SpaceX in particular?

Virtually all kinds of engineers are in high demand in aerospace. Aerospace, mechanical, electrical, and computer engineers are all perennial favorites, but industrial and civil engineers a bit less so.

Hello! I read the book about Elon and it spoke a lot about how hard hard it was to have people joining SpaceX right when it started. I'd be very interested in knowing what made you leave your job to Join SpaceX. On another note, I understand that Elon did a lot of interviews for the engineers at the beginning, does he still have any role in hiring, does he sometimes interfere with HR? Finally, I'd like to ask you for advice! I'm still in junior high, but thankfully I already know where I'd like to work, and that's engine development in either SpaceX or Tesla (vastly different I know, but both roads are still open, hopefully). I'm already learning 3d modelling on my own now which I know is important, but I still have a lot to learn before I become a viable candidate for any role at SpaceX. I'm trying to work hard and I already know what my goal is, do you have any advice on how to further increase my chances at earning my first job at SpaceX, even as an intern? I know SpaceX has strong relations with many Universities in California, I live halfway across globe but would do everything I can to go there if it means a better chance at my dream job, so does it actually make a difference or should I pursue the best college for my situation depending on how it is in the next couple of years? Thank you for doing this AMA, and thank you for believing in SpaceX from the start!

If you live halfway around the globe, the first absolutely critical step is getting a US citizenship or green card. Critical. It is very nearly impossible to get a job in aerospace without one. Second step is doing projects, either on your own or in school-based teams. Car projects and small-satellite projects get recruited very heavily by SpaceX, and fairly heavily by other aerospace companies.

Question: Where does passion for SpaceX and its mission to colonize Mars factor into the hiring process? Background: There are obviously hundreds of passionate people here that hope to work for SpaceX. If there were two people interviewing for an engineering role, would you rather hire the graduate that had a 4.0 GPA but knows and cares little about the history and mission of SpaceX (Person 1) ...OR... a 3.2 GPA graduate who believes their life purpose is to work at SpaceX and spends their free time learning about rockets, manufacturing, etc (Person 2)? Assume both are qualified for the job. Thanks so much for your time!

From what I know, SpaceX doesn't give a *** about GPAs for people with experience. For young graduates and interns, if you're not recruited from a project team, I believe there's a GPA cutoff of 3.5 or so. Passion is a plus, but what's even more of a plus is turning that passion into an actual project that you're working on.

Welcome to /r/spacex! I'm currently a high school student (graduating next year) with an interest in aerospace. For someone who is interested in pursuing a career with SpaceX or a similar company, what suggestions would you make?

Get on a project team in college. Take a role where you get to be hands-on with hardware, software, electronics, anything. Become an expert in whatever you get to have your hands on. SpaceX interviews, especially for internships, focus almost exclusively on the candidate's project experiences.

Thanks for the AMA! Welcome to Reddit. Does SpaceX actively recruit and hire many veterans? If so, what fields and specialties do you seek out? Personally, I'm a former nuclear trained electronics technician on submarines. Now I've been working for about 7 years in the commercial nuclear industry. I've always been curious if there are many ex-Navy nukes working in the space industry.

You bet! Our Veterans are some of our best employees joining us with unique experiences, skills and leadership qualities that marry well with our culture. We intentionally seek them out in looking to bolster our applicant pools with qualified veteran candidates. We have many hundreds of veterans working at SpaceX in all fields and departments. I have the privilege of working with a Navy Veteran on my recruiting staff - shout out to Rafael! Lots of Navy Submariners working here! And more to come from all branches given we are part of the First Lady's Joining Forces Initiative where we committed to hiring many more in the years to come.

Hi Brian! Thanks for the AMA. I have a couple questions: SpaceX was attributed to having a relatively high turnover rate of its employees. Do you still have issues with the retention rates of employees? As a follow up, what kind of traits and skills do the most successful applicants and employees demonstrate? Any tips or advice about the interview process at SpaceX for an engineering position? How difficult/common is it for an employee to transition between groups/roles and locations?

Our turnover rates are below average for the industry. We have lots of employees, like me, who have been here more than 10 years and have made a fantastic career with SpaceX! Getting to Mars is a long term mission so we seek to attract employees, and retain them, for the long term.

Hi Brian, I'm young engineer from abroad who's worked in the space industry for a few years. Though I feel I have a very competitive resume (I lead several subsystems on a small satellite that has been successfully commissioned) I've never received any response from SpaceX after applying for several openings, mostly at the Seattle office. What does it take for someone without an American citizenship or green card to be at least be taken to the interview stage? Are certain citizenships more favorable than others?

You really, really, really need a US citizenship or green card. ITAR violations are taken very seriously in aerospace, and can result in huge fines and jail time.
August 3, 2016 on Reddit

Questions: 1. It's highly unusual in the US for an established technical person to assume an HR role. It's considered an essential career path in Japan for example, but not the US. Why did you transition to HR? 2. What has SpaceX done to influence its culture? 3. You stated "create more efficient and effective teams", what has SpaceX done to do this? 4. Lastly, being selfish, any chance of any openings for a senior software product manager?

That's one loaded question s2e-rloop! I'll do my best to answer here: I always wanted to be an engineer. I studied aerospace engineering at University of Southern California where I also did my masters in astronautical engineering. Over my 13ish years doing engineering and program mgmt work at SpaceX, one of the proudest things for me was just being able to build and work with great teams - not just making the technical systems work, but also the human ones. None of the historic firsts that SpaceX has achieved would have been possible without the efforts of our incredibly passionate, driven and talented workforce. So later I was given the opportunity to lead HR and that was a challenge that I couldnt pass up. There are a few traits that I think really define SpaceXs culture. First, people are really mission driven. Our goal is to help humanity become a multi-planetary species. Every day, we face short-term challenges, different internal and external customers and shifting priorities, but we always want to stay focused on the end goal. Thats how we cut through the noise. We try not to limit our thinking except by the limits imposed by physics. If someone says something cant be done, whether its a business decision or an engineering one, they better have Einstein and Newton backing them up. Otherwise its ripe for discussion. And we dont limit our thinking with hierarchies either. We have a pretty flat organization, and the best idea always wins not just the idea proposed by the most senior person in the room. We take the hardest shots. Its better to pick giant, hard to achieve goals than it is to pick easy choices. We set aggressive goals and strive to reach them. Thats how well make the fastest progress. We try to avoid analysis paralysis in all our work. We build, test, break things and iterate with a sense of urgency. And we dissent with data. We debate and disagree openly and respectfully, using facts and data to reach better decisions. Teams are organized to be as efficient as possible. We want to have an optimal signal-to-noise ratio so that we dont have a lot of bureaucracy and process inefficiencies getting in the way of the real stuff. Today we have a roughly 10-1 manager to report ratio at SpaceX, which works out pretty well. We have a generally flat organizational structure, so being a manager is less about constantly issuing orders than about creating the right environment in which people can complete the work that needs to get done, and to get the support and resources they need. Lastly, we are looking for senior Software engineers and product managers for either our flight software development or development of internal applications/tools that help our company run in the most efficient way possible. Here are a few job requisitions that might be a fit and if you don't see one then please check again soon:

Hey Brian! Really appreciate you putting this on. I have just a few questions: 1) From what I've heard, SpaceX's largest pool of hirings come straight out of college. Is this true, and if so, do you expect this trend of hiring young to continue? (Also, how does SpaceX feel about pursuing a graduate degree?) 2) Being employee #14, you must have been around Elon for quite awhile. Just out of curiosity, what is it like to work for him? Thanks very much!

We have employees from many different backgrounds, with varying levels of experience. But even folks straight out of college come with some experience. They may not have lengthy resumes, but they always have really interesting and valuable records of achievement hands-on engineering experience, first-rate research, and leadership in extracurricular activities. I've been working with Elon for a long time and he's awesome to work with...always impressed with how he can dig into the smallest of details and make the tough decisions.

Hey there. thanks a truckload for what you guys do for the human race. I exploded in tear when that first rocket landed, what a magical moment. my question is do you guys share employees and intel between Tesla and SpaceX? If i work at Tesla, might it help to get hired to SpaceX later on? (being from Canada must I add)

I cried like a baby when it landed also! I still get goosebumps recalling the moment. To answer your question: Tesla and SpaceX are independent companies. We admire the awesome engineering and production efforts at Tesla and if you worked there you would likely pick up some great experience that could help an application in the future.

Hey Brian, thanks for reaching out to this community! I have two questions for you: 1) SpaceX has grown significantly in the past few years to over 5,000 employees today. In the next few years do you expect this trend to continue, or for the number of employees stabilize? 2) In the near future, what areas within SpaceX do you think will experience the most employee growth? Thanks!

Were going to keep adding the talent we need to achieve our mission, but were going to scale gradually and over the long-term.

Lets say I really would like a job at SpaceX, any job at SpaceX (really), but do not have a college education (high school / GED and some skills, but nothing college equivalent). What's kind of opportunities, if any, exist at SpaceX? I know there's the career finder you linked to, but I am curious about this from a general perspective.

I was in your shoes 10 years ago. I started working in the shipping dept. for a large electronics manufacturing company. I made it my goal to teach myself SAP and learn everything i could about electronics manufacturing. I now work for a very large Aerospace company making close to 6 figures. You dont have to be an engineer to work in Aerospace. There are other jobs just as important. Those engineers need someone to tell them what to work on you know. :)

Hi! I'm a mechanical engineering student at a state school. What recommendations do you have for someone older that's trying to break into the field?

SpaceX is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not hire based on age or any other legally protected status. My best advice is to find your passion, acquire as much hands-on experience, and effectively present that in your application. We believe great talent can be found anywhere and are scouring the Universe to try and find it. In many cases it is not as simple as finding graduates from top Engineering schools. We've discovered great talent from all kinds of interesting places...even meeting someone at a laundromat. :)

Hi Brian! First off I would like to thank you for taking time out of your busy day to come over to our community and answer questions. Im a university student and so most of my questions have to do with interns at SpaceX - How much do you guys value personal projects when compared to technical clubs like Baja or Formula SAE? - How are interns handled when considering full-time positions? Is the exit interviews? - Do interns typically get projects they work on by themselves, or are they more alongside a full time employee? Thanks and have a great day!

We highly value all technical projects that are pushing the boundaries of engineering. The most successful candidates for SpaceX have a history of significant contributions to hands-on extracurricular engineering projects, or personal projects, in addition to a strong academic record. We have an extremely competitive internship program that is performance based. Interns who receive high marks and have outstanding performance are typically offered a repeat internship or a full time position. We want as many passionate and talented individuals to continue engineering the future with us. Our interns play a direct role in our mission to mars and are giving incredibly challenging projects. During their twelve weeks, they are fully responsible and own multiple projects. They are paired with a mentor/manager to guide them, but ultimately they are responsible for delivering on their projects. This summer, one of our Production Interns was responsible for designing a tool to help align the docking system on Crew Dragon. This tool will ensure that the spacecraft docks correctly with the International Space Station and that no damage is inflicted to either craft. The tool itself aligns the latches of the soft capture mechanism on the docking system so that they all latch simultaneously to the passive system on the ISS. In the past we had an intern design the re-entry algorithm for the Dragon Spacecraft. So many great stories like this. Pretty cool stuff!

Brian- Thanks for taking the time to do this AMA. Historically, SpaceX has had a reputation for overworking(50+ hours/week), setting aggressive(unrealistic) goals/projects, and a well above industry average turnover rate. As VP of HR, how have/are you working on fixing this reputation? Thanks!

> ally, SpaceX has had a reputation for overworking(50+ hours/week), setting aggressive(unrealistic) goals/projects, and a well above industry average turnover rate. As VP of HR, how have/are you working on fixing this reputation? We recruit people who are incredibly driven by our mission, but its a myth that most of our employees are working 100 or even 80 hour weeks on a regular basis. Sometimes you have incredibly tight schedules that you need to keep, and that just goes along with launching rockets. But we want our employees to be productive over the long term and that means working at a pace thats sustainable. We encourage employees to pace themselves, and our managers pay close attention to whether people are driving themselves too hard for long periods. This is one of the biggest myths I hear about working at SpaceX, so I always want to knock this idea down!
