Senior Launch Mechanical Engineer
Greater LA Area
Team and Role Overview:
At Relativity, we revolutionize the way rockets are built and flown. We are redefining design, manufacturing and operational processes, to create the first true 21st-century aerospace company. We are looking for a Senior Launch Mechanical Engineer to join our growing team and to help us achieve our ambitious goal of launching a 3D printed rocket. As Senior Launch Mechanical Engineer at Relativity, you will be responsible for some of Relativity’s critical launch infrastructure and GSE projects. You will report directly to the Head of Launch.
Outcomes and Objectives:
To help us revolutionize the way rockets are built and flown, you will be designing critical launch hardware that interfaces directly with the vehicle, ground support equipment, test fixtures and tooling. This encompasses a wide variety of designs (full cycle – from conceptualization, design, prototyping, manufacturing, testing, design and implementation).
Examples of some projects you will be working on include:
· Launch Pad Interface
· Integration Tooling
To be successful in this role, you should be someone who thrives in ambiguity and is able to lead their own projects into completion with the highest attention to detail--all while being able to abstract from day to day challenges. Ideally, you are someone who has come from a fast paced, aerospace environment, having completed difficult projects while collaborating effectively with other key groups. Pressure around timelines, cost, and quality unleash the best in you, and you find creative ways to optimize across trade-offs. On a day-to-day, you will be working within our CAD program, Creo, as well as performing FEA and hand calculations.
You are also comfortable with interactions with highly technical teams in order to identify fundamental site requirements and compile solutions that work for a variety of teams. With all of the combined responsibilities, the task at hand will be an engaging challenge that you are excited to take on.
