Company Overview:  

Relativity Space is creating the first autonomous rocket factory.  Our vision is to build the future of humanity in space – starting with rockets.  We have an ambitious mission, and we understand that it takes a village to achieve that.

Team:  

The Accounting team plays a critical role at Relativity in equipping and empowering the company to make smart business decisions.  We work closely and partner with Finance and Procurement teams to predict and ensure the longevity and long-term financial health of the company.

By collecting and maintaining the business’s financial activities in accordance with US GAAP, we enable ourselves to provide accurate and timely financial reports for strategic planning and decision-making purposes as well as quarterly reports to external parties including our investors and lending institutions.  As a team, we are responsible for the integrity of our financial data through governing our controls and supporting our annual financial audits.  It is also our responsibility to maintain tax and regulatory compliance and reporting requirements across different jurisdictions at federal, state, and local levels. 

Now, our team is expanding!  We are looking for a driven and detail-oriented Staff Accountant, reporting to the Accounting Manager, to join our growing team.  As a Staff Accountant you will play a key role within the GL function including month-end close, fixed assets, prepaid expenses, financial reporting, and assisting with the preparation of financial information for external audits.  The ideal candidate will have a solid understanding of GAAP, strong work ethic, possess strong analytical and problem-solving skills, and an ability to thrive in a hyper-growth and ever-changing environment.

What you’ll do: 

  • Prepare general ledger journal entries for month-end close
  • Prepare and analyze balance sheet reconciliations, including identifying and resolving variances
  • Partner with Engineering and IT organizations to build out our fixed asset tagging system and procedure
  • Assist in preparation of monthly/quarterly/annual financial statements
  • Review monthly flux analyses and provide explanations for variances
  • Assist in year-end audit by providing external auditors with supporting documentation
  • Assist in developing internal process improvements, including documenting processes and identifying and developing internal controls
  • Assist with ad hoc duties and special projects, as needed

What you need to know:  

  • Bachelor’s degree in Accounting or Finance
  • 1-3 years of relevant accounting experience from public accounting or private industry sectors (both a plus!)
  • Strong understanding and knowledge of US GAAP
  • Advanced Excel skills (V-Lookups, Pivot Tables, etc.)
  • Strong attention to detail and high-level of accuracy
  • Ability to prioritize and multitask to meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment
  • Solid communication and interpersonal skills
  • Strong work ethic and team player

Nice to haves but not required:  

  • Bonus experience using Infor LN ERP (previously BAAN)
  • Fast-growing start-ups and/or manufacturing industry experience – space manufacturing even better!
  • Big 4 / regional firm audit / assurance experience (strongly preferred)
  • Experience working with cross-functional groups to troubleshoot and find solutions
  • Certified Public Accounting (CPA), active or inactive
  • Hands-on experience in the financial close process

Relativity Space offers competitive salary and equity, a generous vacation policy, an annual L&D stipend and more! 

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

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

Lead Recruiter

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!
