An Insider's view of Virgin Hyperloop One

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.
