SpaceX is currently seeking talented individuals for our Internship/Co-Op Program at our Los Angeles Headquarters. SpaceX engineering interns play a significant role in the design, development, testing, and manufacturing of spaceflight hardware.

Here at SpaceX, you will obtain invaluable hands-on technical experience that you can't learn in a classroom. Our engineers will help you to roll up your sleeves and apply text book theory and lab experience to creating solutions for real aerospace challenges. You will gain practical experience by participating in actual space hardware development projects.

The most successful candidates for SpaceX's Internship/Co-Op Program have a history of significant contributions to hands-on extracurricular engineering projects in addition to a strong academic record.
