Team and Role Overview

The Additive Development team at Relativity Space is responsible for the core design, development, automation and operation of Relativity’s Additive Technologies. The Mechanical Engineering team is responsible for the design and physical layout of our Stargate Class Printers and other automated cells for additively manufacturing, inspecting, and post-processing our 3D printed components. The Mechanical Engineering team works closely with our Automation, Weld, and NDE Teams to derive requirements for our novel process and turn them into functional detailed designs. The Mechanical Engineering team brings a high level of innovation and ingenuity into the design process, as they are tasked with building out our highly-automated 3d printers. 

The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives

You will be a core contributor to the the Mechanical Engineering team that designs Relativity’s additive manufacturing hardware and solutions. In this role you will be responsible for conceptualizing and translating engineering requirements and concepts into detailed designs for our Stargate-Class 3D printers. You will own the development, fabrication, and commissioning of new Stargate-Class Printers and other automated inspection and post-print processing cells. You support efforts to automate every aspect of the printing process including additive, subtractive, inspection and maintenance. 

Candidate Profile

To be successful in this role, you need to be a self-starter that is able to thrive in ambiguity, identify problems and quickly resolve them, and provide definition to the previously undefined. You should have a commitment to quality and the discipline required to achieve it. You will be a trail blazer for the company, so you need to be self-motivated and able to influence both Engineering and Production in order to effectively implement your plans. You need to be comfortable with detail-oriented design/analysis desk work, while also being ready to get your hands dirty with building and commissioning new print cells.

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 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!
