Company Overview:  

Relativity is the first and only company to automate aerospace manufacturing by integrating intelligent robotics, software, and proprietary metal 3D printing technology. Disrupting 60 years of aerospace, Relativity offers a radically simplified supply chain, building a rocket with 100x fewer parts in less than 60 days. Our long-term goal is to upgrade humanity’s industrial base on Earth and on Mars.  


The Finance & Strategy team works cross-functionally and supports growth, innovation, strategic initiatives, and capital investments. It's a highly impactful and dynamic team that focuses on business strategy, financial plans including budgets and our long-term strategic plan, KPI development and management, materials for our Board of Directors, fundraising and corporate development activities.

Relativity is looking for a Senior Manager of Business Operations to join the Finance & Strategy team. In this role, you will be a highly trusted and independent partner in making smart decisions about how we grow and operate our business. You will work cross-functionally to inform executive and other leadership decision making by deriving insights through your analysis. Your work will support and influence the entire company, including production, supply chain, and engineering. You will establish a first-principles approach to understanding problems such as product cost and factory performance, and then validate actual operations against that analysis.

What you’ll do:

To help us reimagine the way rockets are built and flown, you will:

  • Manage the day-to-day of the Business Operations function and help drive strategic and operational decisions
  • Collaborate with engineering and production teams to make critical investment decisions, such as in vehicle design, factory capacity and capabilities
  • Serve as a trusted business partner to the rest of the organization by driving key trade decisions, assessing the financial and operating impact of our decisions, and strategically driving the best outcome for our business
  • Analyze complex production and design issues and support engineering in deriving smart and scrappy solutions to keep to program schedule, cost, and quality goals
  • Play a key role in guiding the development of business analytics tools that will integrate with the wider company codebase
  • Understand and interpret financial results, communicate them to key stake holders, such as executives and Relativity’s Board of Directors
  • Partner closely with the rest of the Finance & Strategy team to support significant capital and strategic investment decisions as well as budgeting and variance analysis
  • Derive insights from across the company to influence the success of the company

What you need to know:

Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Accounting, Engineering, or another related discipline and minimum 8+ years of experience in Business Operations, Technical Project Management, FP&A, Strategic Finance, Accounting, or other related business experience is required

  • Experience working in technologically advanced manufacturing environments
  • Outstanding ability to build and interpret information from large and varied data sets
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills - including the ability to translate complex and ambiguous engineering and production requirements into clear and actionable financial decisions
  • An enthusiastic team player with a strong drive to create a positive and productive work environment
  • Comfortable with fast-paced and dynamic environments, self-driven prioritization
  • Expert in deriving insights from relational databases, such as SQL

Nice to have but not required:

  • Familiarity with manufacturing-based enterprise applications (e.g., ERP, MES, MRP, etc.)
  • 1-2 years of experience in Manufacturing or Industrial Engineering
  • An aptitude for conceptualizing data structures and models

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at
