Elon Musks open call: Move to Texas and work for me – Fox Business
Dr. Michael Pillsbury addresses Elon Musk’s commentary on the strength of China’s economy and climate plans.
SpaceXCEO Elon Musk has extended an open invitation to his followers and anyone else interested in moving to Texas and coming to work for the aerospace company.
“Please consider moving to Starbase or greater Brownsville/South Padre area in Texas & encourage friends to do so!,” Musk tweeted on Tuesday. “SpaceX’s hiring needs for engineers, technicians, builders & essential support personnel of all kinds are growing rapidly.”
Earlier this month, Musk expressed interest in incorporating Boca Chica Village, home of SpaceX’s launch facility, into a city called Starbase.
Under Texas law, the incorporation process is handled by the Cameron County Commissioners Court. Cameron County Judge Eddie Trevino Jr. said the court was “informed of SpaceX’s endeavor” on March 2.
“If SpaceX and Elon Musk would like to pursue down this path, they must abide by all state incorporation statutes,” Trevino said in a statement. “Cameron County will process any appropriate petitions in conformity with applicable law.”
Musk said on Tuesday that Starbase is expected to grow by several thousand people over the next two years.
In addition, Musk is making hiring investments in the city of Austin, Texas.
SpaceX revealed in a job posting earlier this month that it is breaking ground on a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Austin. According to the posting, the candidate will help produce equipement for Starlink, SpaceX’s global high-speed internet service made up of a constellation of satellites, and must agree to up to 25% travel to SpaceX’s Los Angeles-area headquarters until the Austin facility is “fully established.”
SpaceX is currently developing Starship, a rocket that will transport humans to Mars and the Moon. Musk said in December that he remained “highly confident” that SpaceX will land humans on the red planet by 2026.
