    Default Boeing hires former SpaceXer to fix their software

    Boeing just hired a former SpaceX & Tesla software guru to sort out their software mess.

    This comes a few months after a scathing NASA report about the Starliner Crewed Flight Test failure (100+ issues & counting) where the agency said they wished Boeing's software development were more like SpaceX's.

    That had to hurt

    Boeing hires former SpaceX engineer for new software executive job

    WASHINGTON — Boeing on Friday announced it hired Jinnah Hosein as vice president of software engineering, a new role at the aerospace giant.
    Hosein’s resume reads like a defense industry wish list of Silicon Valley stops. He worked as Google’s director of software engineering for cloud networking, helped design Tesla’s autopilot software and most recently worked as software lead for self-driving startup Aurora.

    But it’s his experiences at SpaceX — where he was key to software development for the Falcon, Falcon Heavy, Dragon and Crew Dragon vehicles — that Boeing may look to draw from the most.
    “Jinnah will be a transformational leader for Boeing,” Dave Calhoun, Boeing president and CEO, said in a statement. “Jinnah’s broad experience and fresh perspective will elevate our performance and accelerate the important work we’ve already begun in this area.”
