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.
Our team designs, analyzes, and tests the Aeon engine series at the integrated system level. We collaborate closely with component designers, our manufacturing team, and our Stennis test team to deliver engines that will successfully propel the Terran rocket to orbit. We strive for continuous improvement and support the development of our technical hardware and human teammates alike.
What you’ll do:
You will own software tools that simulate, compare, and visualize data from component and engine tests. Our team will work together to identify tasks that could be automated or optimized, and you will develop software solutions that increase our engine delivery cadence & reliability. You’ll also have visibility into the larger company software stack to ensure your tools can support teams across our organization. This role has broad technical authority and responsibility in a small, high-performance team working to solve engine development challenges and deliver flight-worthy engines to the vehicle. In order to be successful in this role, you should be capable of leading creative, complex, and collaborative projects to completion with minimal oversight. Along with these high expectations comes the opportunity to have a significant influence on a fast-growing startup company and to make rapid professional gains in an environment that encourages growth and risk.
What you need to know:
- Bachelor’s degree in a science, engineering, technology, or mathematics field
- Working knowledge of numerical methods and linear algebra
- Experience writing user-friendly software and scripts for non-software engineers
- Experience with git / continuous integration
- Clear evidence of ownership from school or work experience
Nice to haves but not required – if you do not meet all of these criteria, you should still apply:
- Docker / application hosting
- Web applications
- Working knowledge of propulsion systems
We believe varied perspectives & backgrounds strengthen our team. Prior experience in aerospace is not 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.
