Manager, Facilities Technician

Cape Canaveral, Florida
USD $123,000~$157,000

Company Overview:  

At Relativity Space, we have two audacious goals: to build the next great commercial launch company with Terran R and to become America's leading force in additive manufacturing innovation. Both contribute to our long-term vision of creating humanity’s industrial base on Mars, paving the way for interplanetary life to expand the possibilities of the human experience. This journey begins right here on Earth – where we design, build, and fly rockets to deliver customer payloads to orbit. Terran R, our medium-to-heavy lift reusable rocket, fulfills the growing demand for launch capacity thanks to our iterative approach that accelerates design, testing, and development while minimizing costs. Our groundbreaking research and development in 3D printing pushes the boundaries of large-scale additive manufacturing.

Your journey with us is more than just a job – it’s an opportunity to shape the future of aerospace technology, additive manufacturing, and the human experience alongside a community of passionate, creative individuals. Join us on this extraordinary journey as we work together to transform our vision into reality.

About the Team:  

The launch operations team is a part of the Cape Canaveral launch site and is primarily responsible for the operational aspects of vehicle integration, payload integration, pad operations, countdown operations, recovery, and reusability. In the last year, the launch operations team was primarily focused on the final integration, checkouts, and execution of flying Terran 1. This includes everything from completing the vehicle's final build to clearing the range of aircraft and vessels for launch to being the key operators in the countdown operation. In the last six months, the team has been supporting our team in Stennis with engine testing development and execution. In parallel, the team works hand in hand with engineering teams on the design and building of critical infrastructure to support Terran R.

  • Participate in site expansion planning, provide engineering oversight, and engage in project management activities to assist infrastructure engineering teams in creating next-generation facilities.
  • Ensure compliance with relevant codes, regulations, governmental agency requirements, and company directives related to facility operations and workplace safety.

About You:  

  • Bachelor's degree in facility management, engineering, construction, or equivalent relevant experience.
  • 5+ years of experience in facilities management or a similar position.
  • Industry experience managing, growing, and scaling teams.
