2 interviews over the phone
1 with manager 1 with director. Very pleasant people. Dug into my responses and made sure I knew what I was talking about. A couple questions about how to test basic some basic circuits.
We are thrilled to be recognized as a Best Place to Work on Glassdoor’s 2017 list. Thank you to our exceptional team who make SpaceX an incredible place to work!
