Senior Electromagnetic Design Engineer

| Greater LA Area

THE PURPOSE:

The Electromagnetic Systems division is responsible for the design and development of the Hyperloop Propulsion Motor, Levitation and Guidance Systems. These systems are all electromechanical in nature and are designed by a highly cross-functional team of exceptional engineers in the areas of Electromagnetics, Mechanical Design, Heat Transfer, Materials Science, Testing, Controls and Embedded Systems, and Electrical System Modeling. We are seeking candidates with broad skillsets and various levels of experience to join our team of qualified, diverse individuals and work on one of the most challenging transportation applications on Earth, from right here at our Los Angeles facility.

THE ROLE:

The Electromagnetic Design Engineer is responsible for:


• Utilize engineering principles and knowledge of motor design, magnetic levitation system design, electromechanical devices, and related engineering disciplines to design complex electromechanical systems
• Develop and deliver high-fidelity analytical performance models
• Develop and deliver accurate finite-element models utilizing JMAG, Ansys Maxwell, or similar electromagnetic analysis software
• Implement optimization procedures for nonlinear systems
• Collaborate with other design engineers to develop high-fidelity multi-physics simulations
• Produce professional technical literature to inform system design
• Work with development, test, and manufacturing engineers to create detailed component and system models to support fabrication and testing of components and systems
• Support test and production system integration efforts with electromagnetic analysis (define no-fly zones, compute static and dynamic EM loads, and current/loss distributions)
• Use existing analytical tools (Excel, Matlab/Simulink, SPEED) for initial sizing, i.e. dimensions, weight, cost, electrical and thermal performance estimates
• Contribute to custom toolsets for electromagnetic analyses (Matlab, Excel, Python)
• Working with internal teams and external vendors to ensure timely completion of functional hardware

THE CANDIDATE:

The candidate must have product engineering experience in Electromagnetic design. They must be able to develop elegant design solutions to complex problems and thrive in a fast-paced environment.
In addition, the candidate must possess the following characteristics:

• Team oriented: you are comfortable and energized by working in a team with a wide variety of backgrounds and skillsets. You welcome constructive feedback and different perspectives. You desire to truly understand the goals and needs of your teammates.
• Dynamic and creative: you thrive in a fast-paced environment where several interdependent technologies are being developed simultaneously. You welcome the challenge of generating ideas and performing analysis based on inputs and requirements that are subject to change.
• Ability to make decisions, and effectively lead tasks and meet challenging deadlines with general requirements and wide responsibility
• Experience developing a product from concept to production
• Excellent problem-solving skills
• Excellent written and verbal communication skills
• Ability to understand and interpret a variety of abstract and concrete variables and provide solutions to difficult problems

MINIMUM REQUIRED EXPERIENCE:

• B.S. in Engineering or related discipline
• Design and production experience in the following:
o Rotary electric motors (synchronous, asynchronous)
o Linear electric motors
o Magnetic bearings
o Maglev systems
• Familiarity/experience with:
o Power electronics
o Motor control algorithms
o Linear control theory
o Design for EMI
o Design for manufacturability (DFM), Design for assembly (DFA)
o Failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA)
• Experience developing a product from concept to production

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE:

• M.S. or PhD in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering
• Scripting experience with Python
• Modeling electromechanical systems in Matlab/Simulink
• Detail understanding of electromagnetic losses and measurement techniques
• Detail understanding of soft and hard magnetic material properties and their measurement techniques
• Extensive experience in 3D electromagnetic Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
• Familiarity with electric motor insulation systems
• Comprehensive understanding of Maxwell equations and their application to low frequency electromagnetic problems.

An Insider's view of Virgin Hyperloop One

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There's a buzz that can't be described. Imagine a group of very smart people, all from different backgrounds and industries, under one roof. All of these people are working on a massive project that could change so much in the world. The impact it will have is huge!

Greg Toroosian

Recruiting Manager

What is your vision for the company?

To transform transportation by breaking the time barrier! At speeds in excess of airlines and with the potential to operate off of renewable grid based power, hyperloop will be revolutionary.

Anita Sengupta

SVP of Systems Engineering

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.
