Team and Role Overview:
Relativity is creating the first autonomous rocket factory. Our vision is to build the future of humanity in space – starting with rockets. We have an ambitious mission, and we understand that it takes a team to achieve it. This is why we are growing and looking for team members to join us that feel just as excited and driven to accomplish something that has not been done before, together.
 
The Production team at Relativity Space pulls together the efforts of all other vehicle and manufacturing teams to deliver flight-ready vehicles for test and launch. To meet our goals, we will build best in class manufacturing, test, and quality control processes to keep our team moving fast while still producing high quality, well understood products. The Manufacturing Engineers will be responsible for defining product flow through the facility, architecting the factory development plan, establishing work center capabilities, and manufacturing flight hardware. The Production team will drive efforts to establish the manufacturing and business practices and processes necessary to accomplish that goal. Working with both Engineering and the Factory Development team, the Manufacturing Engineers will be the focal points for establishing the processes and outfitting the Factory.

Outcomes and Objectives:

  • Define, architect, and establish the product flow of flight hardware through the Factory. Identify and implement the tools required to support an optimized, efficient flow.
  • Identify capital tooling and work center capability needs and lead the efforts of standing up key Factory capabilities.
  • Own the Factory layout, as it relates to manufacturing flight hardware. Design the Factory for modularity and adaptability, with an eye for scaling with time and product evolution.
  • Own the top-level Manufacturing Bill of Materials: interface with Engineering to ensure cohesion between eBOM-mBOM, support discipline-specific Manufacturing Engineers in architecting their BOM’s, and collaborate with Supply Chain on strategic sourcing.
  • Drive the development of business tools and processes that will be used to manufacture the first launch vehicle. In parallel, define and pilot the long-term ERP, MES, and QMS solutions that will enable high-quality, efficient vehicle manufacturing.
  • Drive first-time article builds through design integration, assembly sequencing, mBOM development, and build and test work order creation.
  • Develop strong working relationships with both Engineering and Factory Development teams to ensure all company objectives can be met.
Candidate Profile

To be successful in this role, you need to be a self-starter that is able to thrive in ambiguity, identify problems and quickly resolve them, and provide definition to the previously undefined. You should have a commitment to quality and the discipline required to achieve it. You will set the tone for how parts will be moved, handled, stored, and transacted. You will be the go-to Factory Development Project Engineer, capable of laying out the facility, standing up work centers, and establishing Production ‘norms.’ You will be a trail blazer for the company, so you need to be self-motivated and able to influence in order to effectively implement your plans. You will need to balance a scrappy, get-it-done attitude with a vision for the long-term processes required for scaling and efficiency.

 Minimum Required Skills and Competencies

  • Bachelor of Science degree in aerospace, mechanical, manufacturing, or industrial engineering.
  • Minimum of 5 years of experience in a manufacturing environment.
  • Minimum of 2 years of experience building or testing hardware in a manufacturing environment.
  • Extensive experience justifying and successfully implementing capital projects, such as onboarding ERP/MES, establishing new work center stations, or qualifying new manufacturing processes.
  • Extensive Experience interfacing with business functions, design engineering, manufacturing, and production personnel.
  • Expert in at least 2 of the following: manufacturing in development to production phase programs, standing up work centers, facility layout development, BOM architecture, business practice development, building integrated test hardware, capital equipment development, authoring standard process documents, product flow optimization.

Preferred Skills and Competencies

  • Self-starter that has demonstrated the ability to define and own a process from scratch and roll out that process through adept communication to a diverse team.
  • New product introduction of an aerospace hardware system into a manufacturing, test, and production system with proven success
  • Working knowledge of typical manufacturing execution systems and quality management 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.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
