An Insider's view of Virgin Hyperloop

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 do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

My job is based around collaboration with other teams. When a team needs to optimize their workflow or day-to-day operations, I gather requirements from them to find solutions to best suit their needs. I love being able to make this easier and simpler for other teams.

Anne

IT Operations Analyst

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.

Bruce

Safety Regulatory Certification Director

What are some things you learned at the company?

I have learned how to model the dynamics of our pod and how the different EM systems generate forces that control its motion. I extended my knowledge into multi-body dynamics which is needed to simulate the motion of the vehicle through curvilinear trajectories. I have learned how to develop my own in-house simulation tools and use CAE tools.
