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.

AUTOMATED TEST ENGINEER - STARLINK

Would you like to become part of team developing silicon for Starlink's low earth orbit satellites that deliver broadband connectivity to the people who either do not have access to internet or have inconsistent connectivity? Come join the team working on multiple silicon projects that are driving more integration, lower power, mixed signal architectures and advanced silicon technology for deployment in space and ground infrastructures.

We are looking for an Automated Test Engineer (ATE) that has experience in developing test hardware and programs for the RF silicon in Starlink. This team works in a cutting-edge environment to developing future generation chips used in phased array antennas utilizing advanced beamforming techniques.
