Recovery Technician


At SpaceX the West Coast Recovery team is home to a great team in charge of recovering rockets from space! That includes everything from offshore post launch operations, maintaining the Droneship the rocket lands on, post processing the rocket, then sending it back up the coast of California to the launch site. This team is a key part of the company and we’re continuing to build a team of curious, motivated, badass people with unique perspectives. Give yourself a moment to set aside the imposter syndrome and see what your skillset could bring to the team!

As a Recovery Technician, you will perform operations on the droneship, rocket, and other vessels required for recovering flight hardware after a launch. We’re looking for candidates with experience being offshore, driving a RHIB, welding, diving, or other hands on experience with vessels. This job includes ~30-40% of the time offshore and the rest dockside.

The opportunity to work at the intersection of aerospace and marine technology is so unique and exciting. If you’re interested in learning more or you know someone that would be great for the role… please apply, forward this along, or reach out with any questions. Thanks for spreading the word!
