Software Developer

| Greater LA Area

Team and Role Overview

Relativity Space is seeking a Full Stack Software Developer to build engineering applications and data systems. Our goal is to revolutionize aerospace manufacturing through advanced additive technologies. This revolution must be met by similar advances in the tools and systems that support systems engineering. In this role, you will work closely with Systems Engineering, Vehicle Simulation, Propulsion, Structures, Launch, and Avionics groups to develop full stack web applications that will enable rapid and reliable design iteration and execution. You will be reporting directly to the Director of Vehicle Engineering.


The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives

Your mission in this role is to develop applications and data systems supporting vehicle systems engineering. On a day to day, you will interface with vehicle systems engineering and various subject matter experts to develop strong domain models and requirements for application development efforts. It will be a central part of this role to help develop the roadmap of applications, balancing near and long term needs. In addition to longer application development efforts, you will be working on releasing rapid prototypes, tools, and proof of concepts for the team. You will design and maintain graph and/or relational databases to support application data. You will work with engineering teams to develop APIs and other interface methods, giving engineering scripts access to manipulate application data. You will also work continuously with our vehicle simulation team to integrate your data models to central vehicle model.


Candidate Profile

Ideally you are a candidate who has experience developing internally facing web applications working in an engineering focused company. You should be experienced in database design and management as well as in domain modeling and ontology development that inform the data models. You should have an eye for simple and impactful UX design. You should have basic understanding of physical/mechanical systems. You should be driven, scrappy, and always seeking ways to optimize a system. You should also have experience working in small, fast paced teams.

You should also be someone with great verbal and written communication skills, with strong attention to detail—we are building rockets, after all.


Minimum Required Skills and Competencies

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in computer science, engineering, math or similar.
  • 2+ years of professional experience developing full stack web applications.
  • Able to develop complex, data-driven web applications from the ground up.

  • Experience with modern front end frameworks like React, Angular, etc.
  • Strong demonstrated competency in UX design.
  • Experience designing and maintaining relational databases.
  • Experience designing and maintaining graph/NoSQL databases.
  • Experience in a startup or agile development environment.
  • Experience with systems engineering in physical, mechanically focused systems.
  • Ability to learn new skills, programming languages and applications quickly
