Team and Role Overview

Relativity is looking for a talented software engineer to join a rapidly growing space startup. As a member of the Integrated Software team, you will help lead the bring-up of our flight operating system, driver development, and Linux kernel configuration.


The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives

Our mission is to reimagine the way rockets are built and flown. As a Software Engineer focused on Linux kernel/drivers, you will help push us towards this goal by contributing in many areas. While the core responsibility will be systems software to ensure the operating system and drivers we use are reliable and performant, you will also be able to contribute to firmware that runs on our numerous embedded controllers throughout the vehicle.


Candidate Profile

You have experience bringing up new, custom embedded computer designs, from bootloaders to operating systems and device drivers. At Relativity, the software you develop will be a core piece of a software system that controls the entire vehicle operation, and is mission critical. Therefore, you should have a strong foundation of what it means to develop highly reliable software, following best practices around code quality and testing.

Preferred Skills and Competencies

  • Experience with low-latency, high bandwidth, streaming hardware devices, e.g. video cameras, graphics cards, etc.

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.
