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. Our propulsion team is currently seeking a Senior Additive Manufacturing Engineer who will be responsible for developing and scaling additive processes to produce our revolutionary Aeon engines.

 
 
The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives:

To help achieve our ambitious goals, as a Sr. Additive Manufacturing Engineer you will:

  • Develop in-house and supplier processes capable of scaling to meet future Terran 1 launch vehicle demand.
  • Generate and release additive process specifications to control product quality
  • Establish build qualification and product acceptance criteria
  • Implement in-process monitoring systems to screen process anomalies and build defects
  • Analyze results from downstream fabrication and testing operations to inform process improvements
  • Provide design for additive manufacturing (DFAM) feedback and guidance to component owners and designers.
  • Develop and maintain mechanical testing databases to inform design allowable material properties

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 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!
