Team and Role Overview

Relativity seeks a highly talented Senior Mission Assurance Engineer to join a rapidly growing space startup.  This position will provide engineering excellence across the Missions Assurance functions as Relativity approaches its maiden launch of the Terran-1 Launch Vehicle and quickly scales its launch manifest using its novel 3D printing manufacturing process.  This role will initially report to the VP of Mission Assurance.

The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives

As a Senior Mission Assurance Engineer, you will be responsible for working across all engineering disciplines to tackle the most challenging anomalies and issues that Relativity faces from design, build, test and launch operations.  You will be responsible for implementing processes and software tools to support tracking of manufacturing issues, change and configuration management, and ensure appropriate risk posture is maintained while corrective actions are implemented.  You will participate and lead major technical anomaly resolution and present risks and root cause to the Relativity executive team as well as launch customers and government agencies.  During launch campaigns you will be an integral part of the launch operations and provide technical support for anomaly resolution and risk closure.  Since Relativity leverages a unique 3D printing approach, mission assurance solutions should complement this industry changing manufacturing process.

Candidate Profile

The ideal candidate is a proactive problem solver and with a deep technical understanding in one or more engineering hardware or software disciplines in aerospace.  You will need to rely on engineering first principals to help multidisciplinary teams quickly resolve complex problems.  Essential skills include the ability to rapidly process new technical problems and distill solutions into clearly communicable actions.  Attention to detail is critical to success.

Required Skills

  • An undergraduate or graduate degree (BS/MS/PhD) in engineering, project management or related field.
  • 2+ years of relevant experience to Mission Assurance, Engineering Reliability or Project Management.
  • Knowledge of complex aerospace hardware and processes related to manufacturing, integration, testing or launch operations.
  • Solid interpersonal skills to interact with both internal and external groups to overcome associated constraints.
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills with proven ability to rapidly resolve interdisciplinary technical anomalies and establish agile processes.

Nice to haves

  • Direct hands-on experience in the integration and launch operations of an orbital rocket.
  • Full product life cycle experience with a new launch vehicle or spacecraft.
  • Direct experience implementing and maintaining a software system to govern engineering or manufacturing processes focused on reliability.
