SpaceX Opening Office In Orange County

Hawthorne-based SpaceX is opening up a new office in Orange County, in what looks to be an attempt to tap into the area's deep depth of technical talent. According to the OC Register, SpaceX has leased just under 8,000 feet of office space in Irvine, and now is listing jobs for engineering positions in the location, including engineers in the areas of RF integrated circuits and ASIC design. Orange County has a large pool of engineers with similar design experience, drawn from such giants as Broadcom and others in the semiconductor industry.
