Team and Role Overview:
Relativity seeks a highly talented Lead/Senior Avionics Software Engineer to join a rapidly growing space startup. This position will directly work on flight software intended to fly on the Terran 1 launch vehicle.

Additionally, the person filling this role will be responsible for recruiting and hiring additional flight software engineers.
 
 
The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives:
Our mission is to change the people’s conception of the way rockets are built and flown.
