An Insider's view of Virgin Hyperloop One

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office gives the feeling of excitement and energy every day. You can see it through the passionate discussions about engineering, marketing or any field. The people really bring a level of passion and energy that makes it one of the best places to work. The dog-friendly culture also helps soothe our nerves after any intense discussions!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I am probably a unique example having only worked for the company for six months and already having the opportunity to start in the Dubai office and then be seconded to the Los Angeles Headquarters. Relentless focus on making a difference, impacting positive change, and putting safety first have already given me great opportunities with VHO.

Safety Regulatory Certification Director

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.
