It's not every day that you get an opportunity to work for a man nicknamed "the real-life Iron Man." Earlier this week, Elon Musk's company SpaceX updated the career page on its website to include hundreds of listings for open positions across the United States, so now might be a good time to polish up that résumé.

According to Business InsiderSpaceX currently has over 6,000 employees. Back in March, 470 job listings were added to the site (and presumably filled). Now they are looking for 540 new applicants to fill a wide variety of roles, including: every type of engineer known to man, writers, CAD drafters, technicians, baristas, interns, cooks, and toolmakers. And you may not have to move that far to join the team: the jobs are spread across the country in locations including DC, California, Texas, Florida, and Washington state.



The hiring spree comes at a time when SpaceX is wrapping major projects and gearing up for potentially bigger ones. The final version of the Falcon 9 rocket launched last month, Musk is still aiming for Mars and developing his BFR (Big Falcon Rocket – or Big F-cking Rocket, depending on who you ask), there are collaborations with NASA, Starlink satellites, and the Hyperloop project is still underway. Each job listing starts with the following copy from the HR team that is sure to get nerds like us to apply:

Opening quote
"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."
Closing quote


We can't list the qualifications for every single job on here but, if you want SpaceX to be your next equal opportunity employer, check out the website to find your place among the stars.
