Team and Role Overview
Relativity seeks a highly talented Senior Turbomachinery Design
Engineer to join a rapidly growing space startup. This role falls
under the Turbomachinery team. We are responsible for designing,
manufacturing, and testing the fuel and oxidizer turbopumps for the
Aeon engine. This position will provide outstanding technical
contribution to the development of the Terran 1 launch vehicle, as
well as helping to build a world-class turbomachinery team. A high
degree of autonomy and initiative is required.
The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives
Our mission is to change people's conception of the way rockets
are built and flown. As Senior Turbomachinery Design Engineer, you
will develop the assemblies for the fuel and oxidizer turbopumps of
the Aeon-1 and Aeon-Vac engines. You will collaborate closely with
the propulsion development and manufacturing teams to incorporate
improvements into future builds.
In order to be successful in this role, you should be someone
who thrives in ambiguity and is able to drive their own projects to
completion. You must have the passion, tenacity and resolve to work
through challenging issues unique to rocket turbopumps. We are
looking for someone multifaceted, and capable of working at the
interfaces of design, development, and analysis of turbomachinery.
Ideally, you are someone who has come from a fast paced, aerospace
environment, having completed difficult projects while
collaborating effectively with multidisciplinary groups.
