Meet Elon Musk's SpaceX's Newest Employee. He's 14.

The newest hire at SpaceX is a software engineer who made it through the company's "fun" and "technically challenging" interview process. Kairan Quazi stands out because he is only 14 years old.

"I will be joining the coolest company on the planet as a software engineer on the Starlink engineering team," he wrote in a LinkedIn post on Thursday. One of the few businesses that did not consider maturity and ability to be proxied by my age, which is arbitrary and out of date."


The Seattle Times reported that the position was filled just before his engineering school graduation from Santa Clara University, where he was the youngest graduate ever. According to the story, he intends to relocate from Pleasanton, California, with his mother in order to begin working at SpaceX in Redmond, Washington.


Quazi's incredible adventure began when he was two years old and able to speak in full sentences. According to the Los Angeles Times, by kindergarten he was sharing news stories he had heard on the radio with other students and teachers.


According to the story, his parents assisted him in enrolling at a community college in California after he decided that the third grade was not demanding enough for him academically.

To quote him, "I felt like I was learning at the level that I was meant to learn," he told the LA Times.


His family informed BrainGain magazine that he scored in the 99.9th percentile of the general population on an IQ test the same year.


A few months later, Quazi obtained a position at Intel Labs as an AI research co-op fellow, and by the time he was 11 years old, he had gone to Santa Clara University to pursue a degree in computer science and engineering.


According to his LinkedIn page, he worked as a machine learning intern at the cyber intelligence company Blackbird.AI for four months last year. According to his profile, he contributed to the creation of a "anomaly detection statistical learning pipeline" to indicate whether social media information has been altered.


According to Quazi, who spoke to ABC7 News, "I don't think that's accurate, but I think there's traditional thinking that I'm missing out on childhood. Again, I believe that attitude would have me finishing middle school right away.


He looks to have already accomplished one goal by getting the Starlink position. On his LinkedIn profile, he stated, "It is my dream to have a career tackling challenging issues and effecting radical innovation in service of the common good."


Starlink, a satellite internet service from SpaceX, debuted in Nigeria in January as its first market in Africa. An outside of regular business hours inquiry for comment from Insider was not immediately answered by Starlink.


Young people interested in STEM professions might find inspiration in Quazi's path, which emphasizes the value of developing potential and offering proper challenges. His tale shows that reaching one's goals and making a meaningful impact on society should not be limited by one's age. Companies like SpaceX build an innovative atmosphere and open the door for ground-breaking technological improvements by welcoming young talent like Quazi.


Quazi's journey into this new phase of his life, working for SpaceX and on Starlink, will definitely serve as an example for others to follow their passions and push the boundaries of what is thought to be feasible. Quazi's accomplishments serve as a beacon of inspiration for aspiring young engineers, demonstrating that anyone can succeed at any age with hard work, encouragement, and chances.
