Success will require systems thinking, creativity, and excellent communication skills to synthesize information that shapes future products and strategic direction.

  • Take ownership over a portfolio of business development relationships with key enterprises.
  • Lead pipeline and forecasting efforts that inform company strategy and planning.
  • Disseminate customer feedback and work with the engineering team to shape product direction.
  • Synthesize complex information and make actionable recommendations to the leadership team.


    • Bachelor's degree in a technical field (engineering, physics, math, computer science, or information technology) or 3+ years in sales engineering or engineering roles.
    • 2+ years of experience in a technical or customer-facing role.


      • Engineering degree and/or previous experience in an engineering role.
      • Experience carrying a revenue quota as an individual contributor.
      • Experience with hardware, communications, or networking technologies.
      • Experience at an early-stage technology startup that went to scale.


        • Ability to work extended hours and weekends if needed.
        • Must be able to travel (up to 20%) to other SpaceX locations.


          • To conform to U.S. Government space technology export regulations, including the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) you must be a U.S. citizen, lawful permanent resident of the U.S., protected individual as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1324b(a)(3), or eligible to obtain the required authorizations from the U.S. Department of State.
