Product Engineer at Hyperloop One

The Role

The Product Engineer will be part of the Product Development team. This team defines and develops the overall architecture of the Hyperloop Transport System. Ultimately, we will design reliable and scalable products that make the next generation of mass transit a reality. We are seeking candidates with various levels of experience to join our team of qualified, diverse individuals.

The Product Engineer will perform a variety of tasks and be responsible for managing the life cycle of products and services. The selected candidate will work with all engineering disciplines, product management, project management, and business strategy teams needed to develop and define product concepts that meet the mission needs of our customers.

We are looking for candidates who are eager to work in a team environment that is both analytical and hands on.
