Also on the right is the Octograbber 3 robot, just below the white building. It secures stages after landing, grabbing to hem by their launch clamp receptacles.

ASTRONAUT OPERATIONS INTEGRATOR

 

Hawthorne, CA, United States

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.

ASTRONAUT OPERATIONS INTEGRATOR

The Astronaut Operations Team is responsible for integrating all humans that will fly on SpaceX missions. This will include guiding our future crew members through the development, planning, training, mission and post-mission phases. With the pace of human spaceflight increasing at SpaceX, both high level and extremely detailed coordination of astronaut time is critical to mission readiness and success. As an Astronaut Operations Integrator you will be responsible for developing tools and processes to help with managing astronaut schedules all while ensuring smooth operations throughout their time at SpaceX.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

* Manage and maintain the comprehensive schedule of all active SpaceX astronaut flight crews

 

* Develop the plan and schedule, integrate internal and external constraints, identify conflicts, and drive resolution

 

* Communicate plans and schedules to stakeholder

 

* Devise, uphold, and improve scheduling tools or processes that identify, analyze, and brief potential constraints on a monthly, weekly, and daily basis

 

* Work closely with external customer schedulers to integrate travel and availability constraints for each crew member

 

* Ensure that all crew members have a positive experience working with and flying on SpaceX missions from assignment to post flight

McGregor (McLennan County) — SpaceX has entered into a $150 million development agreement with the City of Waco for the expansion of its McGregor facility.

The project calls for real and personal property improvements, creation and retention of 400 new full-time jobs with benefits, along with the retention of 578 existing jobs at the company’s 1 Rocket Road location.

Elon Musk tweeted about a new engine project at the McGregor facility in July.

 

“We are breaking ground soon on a second Raptor (engine) factory at (the) SpaceX Texas test site,” he wrote. “This will focus on volume production of Raptor 2, while (the) California factory will make Raptor Vacuum and new, experimental designs.”

 

Musk added the new factory will “be the highest output and most advanced rocket engine factory in the world” with the ability to manufacture 800-1,000 engines per year.
