An Insider's view of Virgin Hyperloop One

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There's a buzz that can't be described. Imagine a group of very smart people, all from different backgrounds and industries, under one roof. All of these people are working on a massive project that could change so much in the world. The impact it will have is huge!

Greg Toroosian

Recruiting Manager

What is your vision for the company?

To transform transportation by breaking the time barrier! At speeds in excess of airlines and with the potential to operate off of renewable grid based power, hyperloop will be revolutionary.

Anita Sengupta

SVP of Systems Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

Building hardware for two different and distinct worlds. On one hand there's manufacturing complexities of building the pod, which is an entirely new class of passenger and cargo vehicle packed full of high-tech hardware. On the other, there's the manufacturing challenge of building the linear infrastructure. Each is unique and makes work exciting.
