Data & Control Systems Engineer
Greater LA Area
Team and Role Overview:
Relativity seeks a highly talented Data & Control Systems Engineer to join a rapidly growing space startup. This position will help build the core of our propulsion capability via the development and operation of a world-class test facility for components, engines, and complete rocket vehicle stages. A high degree of autonomy is required.
The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives:
Our mission is to change the people’s conception of the way rockets are built and flown. As the Data & Control Systems Engineer, you will have a big role in ensuring the proper testing of our engines, stages and launch vehicle. This will include the development of a test infrastructure that can be used across the organization as well as the development of test racks to support testing needs.
Your main objectives in this role are:
- Develop the test infrastructure to supporting engine and stage testing at Stennis.
- Develop test racks to support these testing activities.
- Develop test software to support these testing activities.
This position is based at our Mississippi test site but requires travel to our Los Angeles HQ as needed.
Relativity Space is changing the way rockets are built--this means that you will have a hand in the design of advanced propulsion-test data and control systems for the next generation of rockets. On a day to day, you will be selecting DAQ/PLC hardware and develop wiring schematics, implementing filtering strategies and sensor selection. This means that you should come from a fast paced company where you dealt with integrating large scale systems--this could be from automotive, aerospace, rocketry, etc.
Minimum Required Skills and Competencies
- An undergraduate or graduate degree (BS/MS/PhD) in STEM majors (science, technology, engineering, and math) comparable and 4+ years’ relevant experience.
- Experience designing, fabricating, and testing complex data & control systems
- Ability to develop and review complex electrical schematics.
- Knowledge of noise reduction, grounding, filtering, and other techniques necessary to ensure quality data.
- Able to work in a fast-paced and intense startup environment.
Preferred Skills and Competencies
- Knowledge of common fluid test instrumentation and components, such as pressure transducers, thermocouples, flow meters, accelerometers, strain gauges, load cells, and solenoid/pneumatic/other valves.
- Proficiency with hands-on electrical skills such as soldering, insulating, splicing, and assembling harnesses.
- Hands-on experience working with pressurized fluid systems.
This position must meet Export Control compliance requirements, therefore a United States Person as defined by 22 C.F.R. § 120.15 is required.
