Hyperloop One is reinventing transportation to eliminate barriers of time and distance by using Hyperloop transport to move cargo and passengers immediately, safely, efficiently, and sustainably.

We design, develop, build and test the technology and hardware to make Hyperloop a reality.

Application Developer at Hyperloop One

The Autonomous Controls Division provides the electrical hardware and software platforms that make Hyperloop a reality. We develop embedded platforms, custom sensor suites and communication networks, that provide the real-time control for propulsion, guidance, and navigation. The systems leverage the latest advances in machine learning algorithms and embedded FPGAs and GPUs to achieve autonomous controls in a future proof design. We derive system level performance models, and implement state of the art controls algorithms. Our team leverages model based systems engineering and agile development practices to deliver mission and safety critical applications. We are seeking candidates with various levels of experience to join our team of qualified, diverse individuals at our Los Angeles facility.

The Application Software Group is responsible for designing, developing, documenting, testing, and supporting the software that connects and coordinates our distributed control nodes. These applications form a complex layered architecture, from interfacing with embedded controls to performing data analytics for system-wide control. We leverage modern middleware technologies to organize and interface between subsystems, allowing commands, alerts, and exceptions to propagate to our supervisory applications. Our software provides the operations interface to the Hyperloop system and allows our engineers to collect performance metrics and analyze results.
