Long Beach, CA
  • Expired: September 01, 2022. Applications are no longer accepted.
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 Integrated Performance team at Relativity Space is responsible for ensuring that our rockets will achieve our overall objectives. Our department comprises teams responsible for Flight Sciences, including Aerodynamics, Thermal Science, Loads & Dynamics, Vehicle Simulation & Performance; Guidance Navigation & Control (GNC), and Systems Engineering.

We architect and execute analysis, simulation, and test projects for all of Relativity's hardware and software teams in pursuit of mission success and ensure that our rockets meet stringent customer and government requirements. Overall, this team is critical to the launch success of Terran 1, among many other firsts!

Your application will be reviewed, and if you are chosen to move forward, you will interview with Engineers at Relativity Space. If you are selected for the internship program, you will be placed on one of the specialized engineering teams listed above.

Summer intern projects
  • Processed test data and flight data to ensure our analysis predictions properly represent vehicle behavior
  • Processed weather and wind data for launch operations
  • Modeled stage separation to inform trajectory design of an entry vehicle
  • Developed models and performed analysis for multiple payload deployment collision avoidance
  • Built out simulation capability and tools for day-of-launch winds evaluation
  • Modeled coupled dynamics of engine actuators in a full vehicle dynamics simulation
  • Upfront design work on creating a wall of truth for vehicle design
  • Developed a script to automatically update a dashboard that displays abort values for testing and launch
  • Worked on reentry CFD and aero database development

Skills/Competencies we're looking for:
  • Current undergraduate or graduate student earning your degree in Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Electrical Engineering or a related field
  • 1+ years relevant internship experience preferred, not required
  • Experience with an engineering coding language like Python
