Corwin A Perren
Hardware Test Engineer - SpaceX
I am a computer science graduate from Oregon State University. While at OSU, I developed an extreme interest in designing and programming custom embedded systems as well as their front-end GUIs. From 2012-2019, I was heavily involved with the OSU Robotics Club, including leading the electrical sub-team for the club’s Mars Rover team during the 2013-2014 school year, the emergency software lead for 2016-2017, and was the normal software lead for the 2017-2018 school year where our team took first place in the Canadian International Rover Challenge! Read more about that right here!
My previous job was at Sinnhuber Aquatic Research Laboratory, where I designed the electrical and software sides of automated research equipment while managing a team of two to four student engineers. I previously also worked for the OSU CEOAS Ocean Mixing Group where I’ve helped build, debug, program, and deploy robotic autonomous gas powered kayaks used to gather oceanographic data.
In early 2019, I also had the amazing experience of getting to work at SpaceX as an intern before ultimately getting hired into a full-time hardware test engineering position at their Redmond location!
