At 14, he became a developer at SpaceX

Kairan Quazi is only 14 years old, but has already graduated from university. And even before graduating, he has already landed a job at SpaceX, Elon Musk's company, where he will be a developer. Obviously, he is not a teenager like the others since thanks to his very high IQ, he went from primary school to university at the age of 10.

At 14, he became a developer at SpaceX

According to an article in the Los Angeles Times, Kairan Quazi was already able to formulate complete sentences at 2 years old. In kindergarten, he would tell his teachers and classmates about the news he heard on the radio. When young Quazi turned 10, it became clear that the regular school curriculum would not suit him. The child was bored at school.

From elementary school to SpaceX

Thus, his parents, as well as his pediatrician, agreed that he should do further studies. The problem is that it was not easy to find a university for a 10-year-old child in the United States. Finally, the young Kairan Quazi is accepted in a “community college” (a public university), before being transferred to the University of Santa Clara, in California.

He is today the youngest graduate of this university, having obtained his bachelor's degree. And he already knows where he's going to work. 7 weeks ago, the gifted youngster posted on Instagram that he was preparing for an important job interview. And in May, he announced to his followers that he had been accepted by SpaceX, one of the “coolest companies on the planet”.

"Next stop: SpaceX!" Quazi said, who passed the "most transparent, technically challenging, and fun interview process".

It's hard to find a job when you're 14

Kairan Quazi will hold a developer position within Elon Musk's company. And he will move to Washington State with his mother, since it is in this state that he will work with the Starlink team (SpaceX's satellite internet service). "I'm really excited for this new chapter in my life," the teenager said, as quoted by Mercury News.

In any case, finding a job would not have been easy for Kairan Quazi. The latter indeed sent dozens of applications, but received 95 refusals. Because of his young age, recruiters do not take his candidacy seriously.

Moreover, Kairan Quazi also had difficulty finding an internship a few years earlier. Only one company responded to his internship requests and it was Intel. According to the Los Angeles Times, the recruiter had agreed to receive him for an interview, but was thinking of telling him to try again in a few years. However, following this interview, Quazi is accepted for an internship with the company's Intelligent Systems Research Lab team. He was only 10 years old.
