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.
You have ideally built software teams in fast-paced environments with rapid growth. You will be growing this team from day one, and so having strong experience in recruiting and identifying technical leaders whom you can empower to move quickly and mentor others is key. This role will require you to make regular decisions about prioritization to make sure your team’s goals align well with the company. You are also capable of providing technical feedback for design decisions and perform the role of “tie-breaker” when needed. Lastly, it will be important that the person in this role is comfortable touching on a broad technology stack that spans sensor acquisition, computer vision, machine learning, deployment infrastructure, and web apps. Deep expertise in each area is not required, but a functioning knowledge to provide high-level guidance is important.
