An Insider's view of Relativity Space

What are some social events your company does?

Every month, we celebrate our new hires (we even fly in new hires from other offices!) by going out to the Yardhouse for dinner. It's great to share a meal and get to know each other outside of the office!

What is your vision for the company?

We are creating an entirely re-imagined process to iterate and scale rockets quickly, eventually helping to build the future of humanity in space.

Tim

CEO and Co-Founder

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've never been at a company before that has so valued recruiting and the candidate experience in all stages of the interview process, from initial contact to even past onboarding. Everyone here respects each others' time and takes hiring very seriously. We have a high bar, but that means we've also cultivated a very talented team!
