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 all aspects of the electrical design on the rocket, from electronics, interconnects, associated mechanical design, testing and initial production. This team's scope includes the flight computers, power systems, RF systems, PCBA design, autonomous flight safety systems, and telemetry. This team works on complex electrical systems that require modularity and flexibility and are critical to the successful launch of Terran R and beyond!

About the Role:

As an Avionics Harnessing Technician, you will be pivotal in supporting the assembly, meticulous inspection, and rework of numerous critical test and production articles for the Terran R flight vehicle. Your expertise in wire harnessing and advanced assembly techniques will be crucial as you build and maintain complex wiring systems and other flight electronics. You will also be responsible for tasks involving electromechanical hardware as required, adhering to strict standards to ensure reliability and performance. To ensure efficient handling of materials and assemblies, you should be comfortable lifting 25 lbs. Necessary accommodations will be provided to ensure equal employment opportunities.

About you:

  • Minimum of 2 years of hands-on experience as a harnessing technician specializing in application-critical, high-complexity wiring systems.
  • Ability to conduct thorough inspections, continuity checks, and hipot tests to ensure the integrity and functionality of wire harness assemblies.
  • Ability to perform rework and repairs on wire harnesses, including cutting, stripping, crimping, soldering, and connectorization.
  • Prior certification in industry-standard wiring practices, demonstrating proficiency and adherence to stringent quality standards.

Nice to haves but not required:

  • A technical degree in electronics, avionics, or a related field is highly preferred.
  • Current or previous certification in IPC-A-620 or similar industry standards, reflecting advanced wiring or interconnect skills and commitment to quality.
  • Demonstrated expertise in fine-pitch wiring, rework, and repair of complex wire harness assemblies, with a keen understanding of advanced termination, grounding, and connectorization techniques and best practices.
