The SpaceX Starship prototype makes the first jump.


A job advertisement popped up over the weekend for “a talented resort development manager overseeing the development of SpaceX’s first resort.”

“Boca Chica Village is our latest launch site for Starship, our next-generation launch vehicle. SpaceX has set itself the goal of developing this city into a spaceport of the 21st century,” said the search ad.

The ad also appears to suggest that the project is in the early stages of development as the position’s responsibilities include managing the design, setting the cost and schedule, and obtaining the necessary permits.

SpaceX did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

While SpaceX may be building the only spaceport nearby, adding a resort to the mix wouldn’t be that out of character for the region. Popular resorts are just a few miles away in the spring break mecca of South Padre Island.
