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 Propulsion Manufacturing Engineer who will be responsible for scaling manufacturing processes to achieve a reliable and cost effective rocket engine. A high degree of autonomy is required. The Manufacturing Engineer will be a part of the growing Propulsion Team at our headquarters in Long Beach, CA.

Outcomes and Objectives:

To help achieve our exciting and ambitious goals, as a Manufacturing Engineer you will:
  • Develop internal and external manufacturing processes capable of scaling to meet production demand.
  • Work closely with internal and external machine shops and process vendors to design and build parts that are designed for manufacturability, utilizing knowledge of additive manufacturing where beneficial.
  • Manage projects for implementation of new manufacturing equipment, performing ROI analyses and running equipment validation testing.
  • Design and fabricate tooling, shop aids, fluid test carts, and any other equipment needed for efficient processing.
  • Resolve and analyze manufacturing and test discrepancies.
  • Create and maintain work instructions, bills of material, and build schedules.
  • Work with design engineers to develop, evaluate, and improve designs for manufacturability.
Candidate Profile

The ideal candidate has a strong mindset toward quality, root cause analysis, and implementation of reliable and productive processes. You come from a mid to high volume manufacturing environment, with exposure to cutting edge technologies such as additive or automation. 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.

  • Demonstrated experience performing structural and/or functional acceptance testing such as hydrostatic proof testing or pneumatic leak checks.
  • Demonstrated ability to determine root cause and implement corrective actions.
  • Strong mentality toward safety and occupational hazard prevention.
  • Ability to complete projects with ownership of end-to-end solutions and minimal oversight.

Preferred Skills and Competencies

  • Prior experience with spacecraft, launch vehicle, and/or aircraft propulsion systems
  • Foundational experience in 3D printing, welding, machining, precision cleaning, and assembly for aerospace applications.
  • Experience running and maintaining powder bed (DMLS) printers.

An Insider's view of Relativity Space

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office is very interesting--from the large and colorful art pieces on the walls to the large (and small) rocket parts all over. We also have screens all over that are casting live streams of our testing and manufacturing floor. You just feel like you are seeing the future of manufacturing unfold right before your eyes.

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've never been at a company before that has so valued recruiting and the candidate experience in all stages of the interview process, from initial contact to even past onboarding.
