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 humanityโ€™s industrial base on Earth and on Mars.


The Software team is responsible for developing a wide array of software across the entire company. This includes controlling the rocket from launch pad to orbit, providing real-time control systems for engine testing, structures testing, and launch facilities, and lastly (but certainly not least) creating our factory of the future with our proprietary 3D printing technology. This team is at the forefront of driving Relativity Space towards our mission of a multiplanetary future, from changing how we manufacture rockets to how we fly them.

What you'll do:

You have experience bringing up new, custom embedded computer designs, from bootloaders to operating systems and device drivers. At Relativity, the software you develop will be a core piece of a software system that controls the entire vehicle operation and is mission critical. You love software and have a strong foundation of what it means to develop highly reliable software, following best practices around code quality and testing.

Past intern projects (just a few examples!)

  • Tested flight quick disconnects
  • Implemented computer vision on the robots to implemented live depth data
  • Worked on adding automated sanding/grinding capabilities to our print cells
  • Worked on test stand infrastructure to help run tests more often and more efficiently
  • Oversaw designing the PCB for the High Voltage Battery Management System (HVBMS)
  • Helped set up an anomaly detection framework for stargate printers
  • Printed rocket engine parts!

Skills/Competencies we're looking for:

  • Current undergraduate or graduate student earning degree in computer science or related technical field
  • Experience developing software drivers to interface with peripherals across a complex system
  • Experience with verification and validation of safety and mission critical software
  • Experience developing high reliability software
  • Experience with software development processes including source control, bug tracking, and design documentation
  • Demonstrated experience working collaboratively
  • Experience in C/C++
  • Experience with continuous integration

Preferred skills, not required:

  • Experience with modern systems architecture
  • Experience working on multiple classes of drivers e.g., bus, block, wireless
  • Experience with low-latency, high bandwidth, streaming hardware devices, e.g. video cameras, graphics cards, etc.
  • Experience with ARM platforms
  • Experience in Python

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

This position must meet Export Control compliance requirements, therefore a United States Person as defined by 22 C.F.R. ยง 120.15 is required.

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.
