SpaceX Needs Electrical Engineers

My name is Merek Chertkow. I am an Alumnus from the Department of Physics at the University of Tennessee. I currently work at Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX) in Hawthorne, CA. I figured I would reach out to my school to see if we can get any outstanding engineers (primarily Electrical Engineers) to work within my team (“Electromagnetic Compatibility and Survivability”). We are in need of very strong candidates.

Obviously, building a robotic launch vehicle for one of the best companies in the world is pretty amazing and I want to see if we can help each other out!

If you are a soon-to-be or recent graduate (BA, MA, or PhD) who may be interested in applying, please contact me:
