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 Factory Development team at Relativity Space builds and operates the cells that will print the world’s first 3D printed rocket boosters. The Mechanical Engineer role on the Factory Development team is responsible for selecting, designing, creating, and maintaining hardware for automation facilities, including full production systems. The ideal candidate should have an excellent understanding of mechanical design, integration with robotics, proficient in CAD suites, and the ability to learn new technologies quickly and efficiently.
Your main objective will be to successfully implement mechanical systems that support launch vehicle production, up to and including full robotic printing cells. Relativity Space is focused on 3D printing rockets and associated hardware with the ultimate goal of 3D printing a rocket on Mars. Mechanical Engineers are key members to the Relativity Space team by designing, analyzing, and building out robotic printing cells. Managing large projects from conception to completion is a key objective to attaining our goals.
The ideal candidate will be an outgoing individual with a self-starter attitude. A successful mechanical engineer at Relativity Space will have excellent communication skills and the ability to work with internal and external customers/suppliers to support company needs. Having worked with large capital equipment and implementing robotic and automated systems is desired.
