Company Overview:  

Relativity is the first and only company to automate aerospace manufacturing by integrating intelligent robotics, software, and proprietary metal 3D printing technology. Disrupting 60 years of aerospace, Relativity offers a radically simplified supply chain, building a rocket with 100x fewer parts in less than 60 days. Our long-term goal is to upgrade humanity’s industrial base on Earth and on Mars.  

Team:  

We are looking for a CAD Designer to join our growing team at our headquarters located at Long Beach, California.  As a CAD Designer, you will be at the forefront of creating world class orbital launch and test facilities.  In order to be successful in this role, you thrive in ambiguity and are able to lead projects from concept through completion.  Ideally, you come from a fast paced, aerospace environment, having completed difficult projects while collaborating effectively with other key groups.  Pressure around timelines, cost, and quality bring out the best in you, while finding creative ways to optimize across trade-offs.  Excellent judgement is a must, as well as a high degree of professional ethics and integrity.  You bring curiosity for our unique technology and our production processes and are eager to develop next generation launch & test sites.

This position is part of our Launch, Infrastructure, and Facilities organization, which oversee new construction projects and facility operations and maintenance. Our facilities are a key part to Relativity’s success in creating the first autonomous rocket factory, and delivering industry-leading launch services to our customers.

What you’ll do: 

At Relativity, we are redefining the way rockets are designed, built and flown. Starting with our proprietary and cutting-edge 3D printing technology, we aim to simplify and automate the manufacturing of rockets. This revolutionary approach enables us to make launch vehicles faster and more cost efficiently, allowing us to offer cost-efficient and short lead-time launch services to customers.

As a CAD Designer, you will have a major role in the development and design of test and launch GSE fluid systems and supporting infrastructure at Relativity’s test and launch sites. Systems include liquid oxygen, liquid natural gas, gaseous helium, liquid and gaseous nitrogen, hydraulics, water, and environmental control systems.

What you need to know:  

As a CAD Designer at Relativity, you will be at the forefront of creating world class engine and launch vehicle test & launch sites. You enjoy working with teams and are able to work autonomously to ensure project completion.  You have a strong background in CAD design and drafting fundamentals, and you have a passion for taking ideas and designs and making them become a reality in the built environment. You are a learner and doer at heart, who continuously engages across technical and operations teams to achieve amazing outcomes. You are willing to travel up 25% to support ongoing design across Relativity’s test and launch sites.
