Team and Role Overview

Relativity is looking for an experienced software engineering manager to lead our Additive Software team. This position will be responsible for planning project priorities and team growth strategies to enable Relativity to accomplish our goal of building the world’s first factory that can 3D print rockets.

The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives

To support our mission to reimagine the way rockets are built and flown, you will be working with our Additive Manufacturing team to create proprietary software applications and machine learning that will run our deposition processes autonomously. This means that you will be leading a team that builds software running in real-time, stores high rate data, monitors the printing process, and works with live streams from multiple sensors along with a lot more exciting research and development!

Your overall objective will be to grow a software team that is capable of handling multiple facets of our Additive Manufacturing process. This includes software for intelligent systems using computer vision and machine learning, infrastructure software that develops efficient monitoring, alerting, deployment, testing pipelines, and user interfaces for 3D printer operators.
