Want to work for Elon Musk? New SpaceX headquarters to hire hundreds

October 25, 2017 – 08:19 am

An interview published Tuesday (via Bloomberg News) for billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk – CEO of both Tesla Motors and SpaceX – reveals a variety of upcoming initiatives for his companies, from a new engineering office in Seattle to a new Tesla vehicle with advanced autonomous-driving features.

Musk, who founded SpaceX (officially known as Space Exploration Technologies Corp.) in 2002, told Bloomberg News that he’s optimistic in his company settling a lawsuit with the U.S. Air Force over satellite launch contracts. The ability to build a commercial satellite business should help him and the company for revenue and communications “know-how” purposes.

“We’re going to try and do for satellites what we’ve done for rockets, ” said Musk, from the SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California. Talks of a new satellite engineering facility in Seattle would be integral for Musk’s ultimate goal of colonizing Mars within his lifetime, hoping to reveal more details of SpaceX’s colonization plans later on this year. He also predicts the engineering office could ultimately employ “several hundred people, maybe a thousand people” in the Seattle area.

Musk, who also helped to co-found Tesla Motors in 2003, discussed the company’s sales goals and latest vehicle, the SUV-format Model X, debuting in the third quarter of this year. According to TechCrunch, Tesla hopes to ship 100, 000 vehicles per year, a major jump from its 2014 shipping total of 33, 000.

“The X will have a step beyond what we’re currently shipping on the autonomous front, ” said Musk. “There are a whole bunch of things about the X that have not been revealed.”

Musk also discussed the recently failed attempt by SpaceX to land the first stage rocket that helped propel Dragon on its cargo supply mission to the International Space Station on Jan. 10. The rocket narrowly missed landing aboard a SpaceX autonomous barge in the Atlantic, but he’s optimistic about the company’s next landing attempt.

“If we had not run short of hydraulic fluid we would have actually landed, ” said Musk. “So for the next flight we’ve got 50 percent more hydraulic fluid margins. We’ve got a real decent chance in about three weeks.”
