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. SOFTWARE ENGINEER, SILICON PLATFORM (STARLINK) SpaceX is looking for software engineers to bring new silicon to life. The ideal candidate will have real-world experience in multiple areas that span the hardware/software boundary: silicon verification, embedded firmware, and software automation. You will be part of a multidisciplinary team focused on solving challenging problems related to the silicon used in all terrestrial/space-based elements of a high-performance wireless digital communication system. You will join a team with “extreme ownership” of the silicon life-cycle, from system requirements, to chip design, to characterization, to production ramp-up, to on-orbit telemetry monitoring. RESPONSIBILITIES: As a silicon software engineer, you will solve challenging problems related to all aspects of the silicon that we design in-house. Much of the system software that you create will be first-generation, supporting silicon designs well into the future.
