I work in the Space industry in Western Canada...all the cool SpaceX, Blue Origin, Amazon Kuipers, etc. jobs seem to require me to move to the US... Is anyone allowed to work remotely from Canada?

Howdy from the other side of the pond hoser! (#sorryhadto) I've tried to look at this in the other direction and it can get complicated even from a taxation point of view. For example in some situations you could get stuck paying income taxes to the US while still owing your local taxes in Canada. I'd start here: https://www.dol.gov/general/topic/hiring/foreign Best of luck!

Yep, definitely something to keep in mind. Might work differently if you were hired as a freelancer/on a contract basis though. Might be able to avoid U.S. taxes that way. Worth looking into.

Oh I thought SpaceX only hired US citizens? (As they work with nasa and require a certain security clearance)

I have all the clearances for secret/classified and currently work on projects for NASA and other US military organizations... But every @SpaceX, @BlueOrigin, @Kuipers job application always states a requirement to be geographically located in the US... wondering if this is actually a truth or something they can make exceptions to...

I’m in space/satellite industry as well. We just hired a contractor from Australia. Fully remote. In fact, we have offices all around the world. I am sure you can join while being in Canada. I am sure some positions might require moving to the US since a good amount of space stuff is for the government.

I can't be of much help myself, other than to say how cool this is and how jealous I am. Always dreamed of working in that industry.

What's stopping you from moving to the US and having dual citizineship

Interviewing for a role at Apple but found the same role at Meta this week. I applied to the position and reached out to a few recruiters via LinkedIn (haven’t received a response, sure they are swamped). Meta is remote whereas Apple is not, really hoping I can interview at Meta as the role is a perfect fit. Am I to late to do a referral? Would anyone be willing to help? Thank you in advance!!

How do you divide your time between your kids? My second is an extra needy and demanding, high spirited kid. My first is laidback and easy going. I always feel like the eldest gets the short end of the stick and never gets enough of my attention even tho she’s always been more attached to me than my husband. She never gets one-on-one time with me as it is since her sister (now 2) is still super glued to my side. Any suggestions for juggling this? Or to ease the mom guilt?

Help me out, everyone seems to be having much milder symptoms with Omicron. Is the hospital capacity issue due to people panicking and going to the hospital despite having mild symptoms or because staff are out with illness? I don’t understand how the medical system is on the brink of collapse right now. Maybe I have a skewed view of Omicron based on anecdotal experience?
