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.


Starlink is Spacexs ambitious program to bring high quality internet to the globe by building a constellation of thousands of satellites in low earth orbit (LEO) which we launched on our Falcon 9 reusable rockets earlier this year. The Starlink Aviation team is developing mobility antennas for aircraft that will connect to the Starlink constellation & provide an amazing customer experience in flight. As a mechanical engineer, you will spearhead the design of numerous structures, assemblies & components. You will personally own high impact projects & drive them from concept to completion on a time scale measured in months, not years.
