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 Technical Sourcer will be a critical member of our Talent Acquisition team to build and execute sourcing strategies that identify and attract potential candidates for our technical teams that drive us toward our mission of launching the first 3D-printed rocket to orbit in 2021. You are equally strategic and detail oriented, are willing to present creative solutions to challenges in finding top talent, be an expert in the market for talent, and can engage with candidates to deeply understand their experience and motives. You’ll relentlessly focus on helping us build a best-in-class organization by increasing our pipeline of talent and building a network we can leverage for the future.

The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives

  • Source passive talent while maintaining a quality pipeline that results in hires
  • Utilize multiple recruiting resources and advanced sourcing techniques to identify top talent
  • Maintain accurate and thorough documentation within our ATS (Greenhouse) and LinkedIn Recruiter that helps track candidates long term and produce actionable analytics
  • Work closely with recruiters and hiring managers to deeply understand the requirements of the role, the function and how it fits into the organization
  • Strategize different ways to build talent pipelines and execute on tactical research, referral generation, talent mapping, events and sourcing campaigns
  • Build and share knowledge of skills, target companies, conferences, and open source communities with recruiters and hiring managers
  • Find, engage and activate passive candidates through the use of Boolean, LinkedIn and alternative search techniques
  • Screen resumes and interview candidates to determine basic qualifications
  • Regularly track pipeline activity to share with internal stakeholders
  • Recommend and drive improvements that positively impact talent pipelines
