    I worked at the Jet Propulsion Lab from 1992 to 2009. The best job I ever had. I know some talent at SpaceX comes from JPL.

    I also worked in an aviation industry role and it was awesome. There is a huge push from R&D to secure new technologies in the aerospace realm. Great opportunities where I am at for Pen testing and IA roles on aircraft and related equiptment. Pretty cool stuff, but I am happy where I am at in “secret squirrel world.”

    I wouldn't even think about applying for this job. It screams long hours and no work life balance. Yeah, it would be a cool place to work, but I also like not working. Work to live... not live to work.

    I'd move there on my own... pretty sure I'd be able to afford it working there.

    I already work long hours. Really long hours, keeping up with customers and technology. Not only do I support a lot of scientists, but on some hardware I have little to no experience on, like Rocks Clusters, Cray supercomputers, and various storage technologies like Netapp and EMC, so to nothing of about 70 VMs.

    I think what SpaceX is doing is amazing and Elon Musk is one of those world-changing geniuses of our time. That being said, I know a couple people who work over at SpaceX in IT and you definitely do have to give up a LOT of your personal life there and it's EXTREMELY hard to stand out there. Doesn't mean it's a horrible place to work but if you want 50 hours or less a week or to stand out as a super star, it's probably not the place for you.

    As a single dude, I'd sacrifice my social life for the future. Seeing as the majority of my time is spent on certifications and school outside of work, this could easily be a replacement following my Masters. Overall, it'd probably be a less work.
