I am an Avionics Hardware Engineer here at Relativity Space (long-time lurker on EEVBlog) and we recently opened a spot for an Electrical Engineer at our Long Beach, CA Headquarters (close to Los Angeles) specializing in Power Electronics. This position will help us get our Terran 1 launch vehicle power distribution system and battery systems to flight design quality and on the launch pad. The ideal candidate is experienced taking electronics from concept through schematic design, design reviews, working with PCB designers (or helping design the PCB too), bring-up testing, and push towards integration into a larger system (Terran 1 in our case). This is a full ownership responsible engineer role!
The person hired will have access to information and items protected under the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR), and, therefore, must be a “U.S. person” as defined by 22 C.F.R. § 120.15.

I've been with the company since it was less than 20 employees as the first EE and avionics team member and we're now over 200 employees and gearing up for our first launch of our orbital rocket. This is a pretty incredible opportunity to work on the first rocket from a launch company and help set architecture/precedent. Additionally, many of us are former SpaceX, Virgin Orbit, Blue Origin, etc employees where this is either our second or third rocket we've designed. It's a really great opportunity to work with some extremely experienced people from the commercial space industry.

Here's a brief overview from our VP of Avionics & Integrated Software. It's in our old avionics lab before we moved to Long Beach where we now have a MUCH larger lab (and is a video from before the pandemic :( )

Recently we fired our Aeon-1 LOX/CH4 engine for a full mission duty cycle over at our NASA Stennis test site. Things are ramping up and we're looking forward to our first launch!

Lastly, attached is a recent photo from our NASA Stennis test site where we tested Aeon-1 integrated into our 3D printed stage 2.
