Team and Role Overview

At Relativity, we reimagine the way rockets are built and flown. We are looking for a Manufacturing Engineer to help us achieve our ambitious goal of launching a 3D printed rocket to space.


The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives

To support our mission of changing people’s conception of the way rockets are built and flown, your responsibilities will include the following:

  • Develop, validate and improve in-house and external manufacturing processes capable of scaling to meet future Terran 1 launch vehicle demand
  • Work with design engineers to develop, evaluate, and improve designs and manufacturing methods using knowledge of material properties, machinability, welding, assembly methods, and quality control standards
  • Resolve manufacturing challenges or issues by implementing root cause corrective actions
  • Create and maintain hardware build schedules
  • Identify, plan, prioritize, and/or design the tooling required to achieve the desired production demand
  • Work closely with external parts and process vendors to design and build parts designed for manufacturability, utilizing knowledge of additive manufacturing where beneficial

Candidate Profile

 

To be successful in this role, you hold a relevant engineering degree and have 3+ years of related experience, ideally in an aerospace manufacturing environment. You have demonstrated experience working cross-functionally to resolve manufacturing issues and meeting production demand. The ideal candidate has a strong mindset toward quality, root cause analysis, and implementation of reliable and productive processes. You’re a tinkerer but also a self-starter who can balance and prioritize daily tasks that contribute to short and long term company goals. 

 

Minimum Required Skills and Competencies

  • 3+ years of relevant manufacturing experience and an undergraduate or graduate degree in a related engineering discipline
  • CAD and CAM software experience with understanding in application of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T)
  • Demonstrated experience with metal manufacturing methods such as machining, additive, welding, precision cleaning and NDT for aerospace products
  • Demonstrated ability to determine root cause and implement corrective actions
  • Demonstrated ability to develop, document, and communicate build instructions

Preferred Skills and Competencies

  • 5+ years of experience with spacecraft, launch vehicle, and/or aircraft structural systems
  • Foundational knowledge in metallurgy
  • Expert experience in machining & welding
  • Expert experience in tooling
  • Extensive experience with NX

This position must meet Export Control compliance requirements, therefore a United States Person as defined by 22 C.F.R.  § 120.15 is required.

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.

Nat

What is your vision for the company?

We are creating an entirely re-imagined process to iterate and scale rockets quickly, eventually helping to build the future of humanity in space.

Tim

CEO and Co-Founder

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!
