SpaceX is looking for talented Aerospace, Mechanical, Electrical and Computer Engineers to design, build, test and fly our next generation of rocket launch vehicles. We are hiring interns, co-ops and full-time new graduate employees for positions across the company and at all academic levels. On December 8, 2010, SpaceX made history by bringing our Dragon capsule safely back to Earth after two orbits around the planet. This feat marks the first timeever a commercial company has successfully recovered a spacecraft from low-Earth orbit. Please join us for an information session discussing the tremendous technical challenges involved with spacecraft re-entry, recovery and reusability.

All interested students are invited; seating is first-come-first-served.

TECHNICAL OVERVIEW: The Business of Revolutionizing Rockets

Presented by Jamie Hadden – Mission Integrator

SpaceX is a US based rocket company founded by Elon Musk, the former co-founder of PayPal. Musk is currently the residing CEO and CTO at SpaceX and also the Chief Product Architect and CEO of Tesla Motors.

SpaceX builds rockets from the ground up; including electronics, software, vehicle structures, and engines. At SpaceX we cut through the noise and believe in the essentials of hands-on, hardcore engineering.

We build it, test it, and fly it.


Jamie Hadden studied Physics at Harvey Mudd College, and subsequently worked at Northrop Grumman designing and operating space systems. He has been with SpaceX for two years. Jamie is a Mission Manager at SpaceX, responsible for the programmatic, technical and financial success of SpaceX’s first two geosynchronous telecommunications satellite launches, planned for early 2013.
