THE PURPOSE:
The Senior Design & Tooling Engineer is responsible for the development of testing systems, equipment and fixture tooling where needed.

They should be able to develop simple design solutions to complex problems with background in creating mechanical test stands with proper automated systems and instrumentation. Most of what we design are one of a kind, meaning that this candidate should understand and interpret a variety of abstract and concrete variables to provide the best possible solution.

Virgin Hyperloop One is also a very collaborative R&D environment--the candidate should be a team player and possess great communication skills. 


MINIMUM REQUIRED EXPERIENCE:

  • Track record of completing multiple machine design projects from conception to implementation
  • Knowledge of manufacturing techniques and methodologies
  • Proficient in CAD software package(s) such as NX (preferred), CATIA, Solidworks, etc. 
  • Solid understanding of GD&T 
  • Knowledge of fundamental engineering analysis tools such as hand calculations or simulations


PREFERRED EXPERIENCE:

  • B.S. in Engineering or Engineering related field
  • Designing mechanical test equipment (instrumentation, automation)
  • Experience using Siemens Unigraphics NX 8 or higher, and a PLM/PDM software such as Teamcenter
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Word, Excel, and Project

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.
