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. Check out our latest YouTube video here! 

Team: 

Relativity seeks an entry-level Mechanical Engineer to join Relativity full-time.  

Your application will be reviewed, and if you are chosen to move forward, you will interview with Engineers at Relativity Space. If you are selected to move forward; your application will be considered for the below specialized teams:  

Launch: The Launch team at Relativity Space builds up our Launch Operations programs at both of our Launch Sites, Vandenberg AFB, and Cape Canaveral Florida. This team leads the strategy and logistics to make launch a reality, as well as manages the Health and Safety teams. As we near our goal of launching in fall 2021, our launch team ensures that our launch pads are well equipped.  

Propulsion: The Propulsion team at Relativity Space is responsible for the design, development, testing, and manufacturing of Relativity’s entirely 3D printed rocket engines, Aeon- 1 and Aeon-R. As a part of this team, you will help build, create, and iterate on the full product lifecycle of our engines. 

Powder-Based Additive: The Additive Development team at Relativity Space will develop, create, and operate the most advanced additive manufacturing technologies in the world. This best-in-class team makes sure that the infrastructure, materials, tools, and equipment are in place for us to rapidly iterate and print.  

Robotics Hardware/Additive Development: The Robotics Hardware/Additive Development team is responsible for the design, development, installation, and commissioning of the large format robotic 3D printers that build Relativity’s rockets. The team is a true R&D machine that is constantly designing, testing, inventing, questioning, and building in service of creating the next generation of disruptive aerospace manufacturing techniques. 

Structures: The Structures team at Relativity is responsible for the design, analysis, testing, and manufacturing our launch vehicle integrated structures, as well as flight mechanisms. As a part of this team, you will be given hardware ownership for the full product lifecycle, and get the opportunity to conveniently validate your hardware through testing at our factory of the future, headquartered in Long Beach, CA. 

Vehicle: The Vehicle team at Relativity Space designs, develops, and qualifies all hardware on our launch vehicles. Unique to Relativity, you will get to work across many teams to iterate and support Relativity's first-of-its-kind 3D printing software and robotics technology. 

What you'll do: 

You will play a key role in driving Terran 1 launch, developing initial architecture for the upcoming Terran R vehicle, and re-thinking launch vehicle systems around large-scale 3D printing. You will work closely with multidisciplinary vehicle engineering and additive teams to deliver a world-class launch vehicle. 

Here are some examples of what you could be working on: 

  • Design, analyze, and test components and assemblies for flight use 
  • Develop and execute tests to support dynamic systems development and qualification, including hands-on work like test article integration, instrumentation setup, data processing, and model validation

Skills/Competencies we're looking for:  

  • Current undergraduate or graduate student graduating in December 2021 or Spring/Summer 2022 
  • Earning your degree in Mechanical Engineering or related field  
  • Relevant internship experience preferred

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.

Nat

Lead Recruiter

What is your vision for the company?

We are creating an entirely re-imagined process to iterate and scale rockets quickly, eventually helping to build the future of humanity in space.

Tim

CEO and Co-Founder

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. Everyone here respects each others' time and takes hiring very seriously. We have a high bar, but that means we've also cultivated a very talented team!
