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 Integrated Performance department is responsible for ensuring that Relativity’s rockets will achieve our objectives. Our department comprises teams responsible for Flight Sciences, including Aerodynamics, Thermal Science, Loads, and Dynamics; Vehicle Simulation & Performance; Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC); and Systems Engineering. Our teams architect and execute analysis, simulation, and test projects for all of Relativity’s hardware and software teams in pursuit of mission success.

You will work collaboratively with the structures, additive, propulsion, avionics, fluids, test and dynamics teams to deliver analysis and test projects on time and budget, while meeting our technical requirements. A high degree of autonomy along with an ability to prioritize work in our fast paced environment is required.

What You’ll Do:

You will play a key role in driving the Terran 1 launch vehicle to first flight, developing initial architecture for the upcoming Terran R vehicle, and growing a talented and experienced group of analysts. You will work closely with a multidisciplinary vehicle engineering team to deliver world-class insight in the areas of structures engineering and analysis. Additionally, you will help build an outstanding analysis organization at the cutting edge of commercial aerospace.

What You Need to Know:

  • An undergraduate degree in engineering or related field and 10+ years relevant experience
  • 3+ years experience in managing and leading highly technical teams, including hiring and performance management
  • Industry-leading expertise in high-performance aerospace structures
  • Experience in an analysis role from concept through V&V and certification on multiple vehicle programs
  • Experience solving complex problems on integrated vehicles
  • Hands-on experience with testing, instrumentation, and data analysis at the component and system levels
  • Experience structuring, negotiating, executing, and delivering complex analysis projects to hardware teams

Nice to Haves but Not Required:

  • A graduate degree (MS/PhD) in engineering or related field and 15+ years relevant experience
  • Experience managing and developing analysis toolsets and workflows using both custom and commercial software
  • Expertise in multiple technical domains (e.g. structural and thermal)
  • Experience leading anomaly resolution/failure investigations

Relativity Space offers competitive salary and equity, a generous vacation policy, an annual L&D stipend and more!
