Senior Technical Recruiter (Hardware) at Relativity Space
Long Beach, CA, US

Relativity is creating the first autonomous rocket factory. Our vision is to build the future of humanity in space -- starting with rockets. We have an ambitious mission, and we understand that it takes a team to achieve it. This role will be working under our Talent Acquisition team--managing our hiring pipelines and helping us find the very best to join our company.

The Mission/Outcomes and Objectives:

 As a Senior Technical Recruiter, you will help us achieve this mission by partnering closely with our hiring managers and managing the whole recruiting process. This means that you will get to know your team and their projects—helping you source, interview, negotiate offers, and onboard the right people.

In addition to recruiting, you will also assist in various interview training, process optimization, and the implementation of new tools—all while providing a candidate experience consistent with our company values. Participation in networking events, career fairs, and some travel to our test site may also be required.
