An Insider's view of Relativity Space

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

It's actually a balance (wild!). I get to make sweet hardware with smart people, and still have the ability to propel my art on the side. I love that there's flexibility in being able to work from home when I'm not in the factory building rockets.

Ashley

Lead Avionics Mechanical Engineer

What projects are you most excited about?

First and foremost, launching Terran 1 is incredibly exciting. Launching rockets is exciting enough, but launching rockets built with an entirely new manufacturing method is bananas! It’s pretty amazing to be a part of this historical human milestone.

Tarek

Lead, Structures Engineering

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 does your typical day look like?

Everyday is an adventure to unlock newer and newer capabilities. Developing the technology to 3D print rockets has entailed regularly solving novel problems. The resulting solutions from working with such a diversely experienced team always stretch my understanding of what's possible, and reward us with new avenues for the innovations of tomorrow.
