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.
Fulfillment Planner Starship Avionics Supply Chain
Supply Chain Planning lies at the heart of SpaceX, where we build world-class rockets and spacecraft at an unprecedented rate. Fulfillment Planners help support tactical functions of material planning and procurement, to ensure we fulfill the part requirements to meet our customer manifest and development goals. This includes working closely with Production to coordinate the flow of work between departments, working with Buyers and our supplies to ensure on-time delivery, updating systems that signal the broader business, reporting on critical shortages, and driving continuous improvement. With all integration taking place in-house, buyers and planners are able to see their assemblies from start to integration on vehicle.
We need forward-thinkers who can recover material shortages on purchased and fabricated parts by working cross-functionally to develop creative solutions. Help us build rockets reliably, cost-efficiently, and on-time!
