Manufacturing Engineer

| Greater LA Area
Team and Role Overview:
At Relativity, we reimagine the way rockets are built and flown. We are redefining design, manufacturing, and operational processes to create the first 21st-century aerospace company. We are seeking a highly talented Manufacturing Engineer who will be responsible for scaling manufacturing processes to achieve a reliable and cost effective launch vehicle. A high degree of autonomy is required. The Manufacturing Engineer will be a part of the growing Manufacturing Team at our headquarters in Inglewood, CA.
Outcomes and Objectives:
To help achieve our exciting and ambitious goals, as a Manufacturing Engineer you will:
· Develop in-house and external manufacturing processes capable of scaling to meet future Terran 1 launch vehicle demand.
· Work closely with external machine shops and process vendors to design and build parts designed for manufacturability, utilizing knowledge of additive manufacturing where beneficial.
· Develop and own component and system level acceptance testing of manufactured hardware. Analyze results from testing to provide useful feedback on hardware performance to design and development engineering.
