RF & Telemetry Systems Engineer II

Long Beach, California
USD $117,000~$150,000
Software Development

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. While 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 Avionics team is responsible for the full lifecycle of all electronics and supporting hardware central to operating Relativity's rockets. The team designs, builds, tests, integrates, and operates the hardware which controls the rocket in flight, downlinks critical telemetry, keeps the public safe, and deploys our customers' payloads to orbit! Our hardware enables Relativity to reliably control our rockets while maintaining the flexibility to rapidly iterate our designs. As a member of this team, you will design innovative hardware solutions capable of surviving harsh launch and space environments. Your designs will support multiple vehicle systems such as sensors, propulsion, computing, actuation, energy management, and communications.

About the Role: 

- Lead certification and regulatory compliance of the range tracking and telemetry subsystems

- Lead the development and system readiness of the RF ground segment from conceptual design to launch-ready

- Support RF system test and operations with RF & Telemetry engineers and partner teams

- Interface with regulatory agencies and third parties in various certification and operations readiness activities

- Drive the development of the flight and ground RF & Telemetry system for our launch vehicles through all phases of the development process including design, integration, test, and launch

About You:  

- Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or a related field

- 3+ years of experience in communication systems engineering or related field

- Experience with the testing of RF systems consisting of radio transmitters and receivers, LNAs, PAs, couplers, filters, etc.

- Familiar with signal processing, link budget analysis, and related RF theory

- Experience with RF test equipment such as spectrum analyzers, SDRs, and data recorders

- Experience troubleshooting complex RF hardware and software systems

Nice to haves but not required:  

- Experience establishing a ground station network for launch vehicles or satellite systems

- Software engineering fluency and experience with C++, Python, and/or MATLAB

- Real-world experience with satellite ground systems operations

- Familiarity with telemetry standards such as IRIG-106, and regulatory standards such as 14 CFR Part 450 and RCC 324-11
