Job description

Company Overview:

Relativity is the first and only company to automate aerospace manufacturing by integrating intelligent robotics, software, and proprietary metal 3D printing technology. Disrupting 60 years of aerospace, Relativity offers a radically simplified supply chain, building a rocket with 100x fewer parts in less than 60 days. Our long-term goal is to upgrade humanity’s industrial base on Earth and on Mars.  

Team:

The Propulsion team at Relativity Space is responsible for the design, development, testing, and manufacturing of Relativity’s entirely 3D printed rocket engines. As a part of this team, you will help build, create, and iterate on the full product lifecycle of our Aeon-R engine systems. Unique to Relativity, you will get to work across many teams to iterate and support Relativity's first-of-its-kind 3D printing software and robotics technology. This team is critical to the development of Terran R. 

What you’ll do:

You will own propulsion combustion devices from conceptual design through manufacturing and implementation. This role involves leveraging a range of skillsets, spanning from design, analysis (structural, thermal, fluid), manufacturing, test, project management, and communication. You will work across teams and departments and take ownership of projects of your creation. In order to be successful in this role, you should be someone who thrives in ambiguity and be capable of leading collaborative projects to completion with minimal oversight. Along with these high expectations comes the opportunity to have a significant influence on a fast-growing startup company and to make rapid professional gains in an environment that encourages growth and risk.

What you need to know:

  • Bachelor's degree in a science or engineering field
  • 3+ years of experience in combustion devices
  • Strong engineering fundamentals in thermodynamics, thermal, structural, and fluids analysis
  • Clear evidence of ownership from school or work experience

Nice to haves but not required – if you do not meet all of these criteria, you should still apply:

  • 5+ years relevant experience, preferably in a rocket engine development and/or test environment
  • Working knowledge of engine subsystems such as combustion devices, heat exchangers, ducting
  • Exposure to powder bed additive manufacturing and automation techniques

We believe varied perspectives & backgrounds strengthen our team. Prior experience in aerospace is not required.

Relativity Space offers competitive salary and equity, a generous vacation policy, an annual Learning & Development 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.
