Team and Role Overview

At Relativity, we reimagine the way rockets are built and flown. We are redefining design, manufacturing, and operational processes to create the first 21st-century aerospace company. We are seeking a highly talented Integration Engineer who will be responsible for developing and scaling our Aeon engine assembly processes to achieve a reliable and cost effective launch vehicle. A high degree of autonomy is required. The Integration Engineer will be a part of the growing Propulsion Team at our headquarters in Long Beach, CA.

The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives

To help achieve our exciting and ambitious goals, as an Integration Engineer you will:

  • Develop and implement assembly and test processes for the Aeon 1 engine system.
  • Coordinate with design and manufacturing and responsible engineers to ensure on-time delivery of piece parts.
  • Maintain build schedules and ensure resources are properly aligned with priorities.
  • Organize, streamline, and diligently maintain assembly work stations to minimize waste.
  • Design assembly aids, build fixtures, shipping containers, and any other tooling needed for safe and reliable handling of engine hardware.
  • Design and build hydrostatic proof and pneumatic leak check test carts.
  • Resolve and analyze manufacturing and test discrepancies.
  • Work with design engineers to develop, evaluate, and improve design to streamline assembly and manufacturing.

Candidate Profile

To be successful in this role, you should hold a relevant engineering degree and have 4+ years of related experience, ideally in an engine assembly environment. Demonstrated experience working cross-functionally to resolve manufacturing issues and meeting production demand is a must. The ideal candidate has a strong mindset toward quality, root cause analysis, and implementation of reliable and productive processes. You’re a tinkerer but also a self-starter who can balance and prioritize daily tasks that contribute to short and long term company goals.

  • Experience performing electrical system inspections, preferably with high sensitivity avionics systems
  • Demonstrated experience performing structural and/or functional acceptance testing - hydrostatic proof testing, pneumatic leak check, etc.
  • Hands-on experience assembling precision components in high pressure fluid applications
  • Demonstrated ability to determine root cause and implement corrective actions
  • Strong mentality toward safety and occupational hazards
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced and intense startup environment

Preferred Skills and Competencies

  • Prior experience with spacecraft, launch vehicle, and/or aircraft propulsion systems
  • Well versed in general fabrication including manual machining, welding, cleaning, etc.
  • Experience working with powder bed (DMLS) printed components
