supply chain

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.  


Relativity Space is rapidly expanding to support our long-term vision of fully 3D printing re-usable rockets. We have recently acquired nearly a million square feet of new factory space in Long Beach, CA, which we are converting into a re-usable rocket factory for our Terran R launch vehicle. With this massive expansion comes a variety of brand-new manufacturing and production processes that must be designed and built.

As our Senior EHS Engineer, you will be responsible for driving risk reduction for both existing and future manufacturing processes by performing the following:

  • Assessing risk for new processes and implementing design changes to reduce risk to human safety.
  • Ensuring new work center design meets applicable Cal/OSHA standards, California Fire Code, and any other applicable regulations or consensus standards.
  • Collaborating with the construction team to support fire / life safety design and permitting.
  • Identifying workplace hazards and designing / implementing engineering controls to reduce workplace incident risk.
  • Collaborate with additive and manufacturing engineering teams to implement hierarchy of controls across manufacturing work centers.

In addition to injury prevention through design, you will be supporting the EHS team by building programs, supporting safety culture initiatives, delivering EHS training, and performing industrial hygiene surveys.
