SpaceX's Newest High Tech Job: Farmer?
In what might be the strangest position available at Elon Musk's pioneering space rocket firm, SpaceX has posted a job for a farmer on its job page--a strange mix of the high tech world of space travel and farming. According to the position, SpaceX is seeking a farmer with a minimum of 10 years of row crop farming experience in central Texas, where it currently has operations in McGregor. Agriculture.com speculates the position has to do with tax exempt status for agriculture in that state, as much as it does for space exploration. SpaceX is based in Hawthorne, California.
