Team and Role Overview

Relativity 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 team to achieve it.

The Director of Talent Acquisition will lead the charge for setting the strategic vision and plan for finding current and future generations of rock(et)star talent to join Relativity Space. In this role, you flex across being both a leader and a doer – motivating, managing, and mentoring a team of recruiting professionals, while also leading by example through setting budgets, removing roadblocks, owning high priority requisition, and building upon current processes to enable our business to scale in sending the world’s first 3D-printed rocket to orbit in 2021. You’ll relentlessly focus on not only addressing our current talent needs, but also maintaining our longer-term efforts of building a powerhouse talent team to support technical and experienced talent acquisition, on-campus recruiting (internship and full-time hiring), employer branding, diversity hiring, and operations & analytics.



The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives

Talent & Strategy Leadership

  • In partnership with the VP of People, you will set and own the talent acquisition strategy and plan, annual and quarterly objectives, and monitor and track KPIs
  • Partner with the VP of People and senior leaders to conduct workforce planning, drive organizational design and scenario planning, succession planning, and identify talent trends, using a data-driven approach
  • Identify and execute initiatives to drive a culture of recruiting across Relativity
  • Lead and mentor the talent acquisition team to uplift their recruiting capabilities and maintain a high quality candidate and hiring manager experience
  • Continuously evaluate opportunities to improve quality, process, tools, and experience across all talent acquisition touchpoints
  • Manage the talent acquisition team to set priorities, assign accountability, and assess performance

Experienced, Technical, D&I, and University Recruiting

  • Set sourcing and recruiting strategies and team structure for focused areas of hiring, including experienced talent, technical team members, diversity hiring, and university relations
  • Own the internship program from recruiting through to offboarding
  • Partner extensively with Relativity’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion leader to support the diversity and inclusion strategy, including but not limited to, external initiatives to brand Relativity as an employer that values having a diverse workforce, driving talent acquisition strategy to hire diverse candidates, build programs and initiatives internally that support a culture of inclusion
  • Partner with the PeopleOps and IT teams, as well as relevant departments, to drive a seamless integration into the onboarding experience

Employer Branding

  • Work in partnership with Relativity’s Brand & Communications team to define the employer branding strategy, voice, style, and channels
  • Engage your team to lead and the entire company in participation of employer branding initiatives to provide an insight view into what makes Relativity the best place to work for


Candidate Profile

You are an experienced Talent Acquisition leader, having come from other startups where you scaled teams from 150-1000+ employees. You are the type of person with a strong growth mindset for yourself and your team, possessing qualities that inspire confidence and trust across multiple levels.

In your previous roles, you should have also managed a talent acquisition team, motivating and influencing them to product quality materials within tight timeframes while simultaneously managing several projects. You are a strategic thinker and doer; you are not afraid to roll up your sleeves to pitch in and get the job done with a lean team. Your culture sensitivity skills enable you to get along with people at all levels of the organization. You celebrate your teams’ success and you empathize with them during hard times. You foster a sense of belonging and empowerment by incorporating professional learning opportunities and by hosting social team events where bonding, fun and creativity are a priority

  • Experience managing, developing, and mentoring a team of talent acquisition professionals
  • Experience developing and managing employer branding programs
  • Proven track record in sourcing passive talent and executive recruiting
  • Experience building a team to execute the Talent Acquisition strategy

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!
