Control and Dynamics Engineer

Job description


As Control and Dynamics Engineer your primary focus is on the development of advanced control systems as well as hyperloop vehicle dynamical models that will drive crucial high-speed and cargo system operation. Topics like control theory, vehicle dynamics, system stability, performance, safety, comfort, and reliability, are at the heart of this role’s responsibilities, as well as testing and validation.


As Control and Dynamics Engineer your responsibilities will include:

  • Conceptualize, simulate, implement, optimize, and test control algorithms for the hyperloop vehicle’s tractive systems
  • Design state-of-the-art control systems for system stability, performance, fault detection safety, and reliability
  • Model and study the kinematics and dynamics of hyperloop vehicles
  • Design, implement, and test novel state estimation and filtering algorithms 
  • Work closely with both the vehicle and tractive team to establish a link between vehicle design and system stability
  • Interface with magnetics, power electronics, suspension, and software engineers
  • Define and perform system testing and validation procedures

Job requirements


  • Minimum of 4 years of experience in control system design and dynamical system modeling
  • University degree in control engineering or similar field
  • Experience in the full design cycle of control systems: conceptualization, analysis, optimization, testing, and commissioning
  • Solid experience is linear and non-linear control system design for highly constrained non-linear dynamical systems
  • Solid experience in multibody dynamics modeling and simulation
  • Experience in frequency and time domain system analysis, system identification, signal conditioning, and state estimation
  • Hands on experience in testing and commissioning of control systems
  • Proficiency in Matlab and Simulink
  • Experience in safety critical control system
  • Knowledge of electric machines fundamentals and motor control is a plus


We are a strong team of highly driven and enthusiastic people from all over the world. People who get stuff done, people who can create, who have a passion for challenges and love to explore. Hardt seeks achievers; leaders and visionaries who want to join our team and make Hardt Hyperloop a global success story.


Hardt is a European technology company that specializes in hyperloop. We believe it is our duty to improve the lives of current and future generations by creating technologies that challenge time and distance and remove physical boundaries. We envision a world where you can go and be with everyone and everything you care about. A world where distance does not matter.

Hyperloop is the new mode of transportation for large volumes of passengers and cargo. The hyperloop network connects cities, countries, and even continents in short periods of time. Tubes with a low-pressure environment offer ideal conditions for low-energy travel and protect the vehicles from external influences. Just like a highway, vehicles join and exit the high-speed network at any point along the route and are seamlessly connected with other modalities. Direct trips are made possible without transfers or intermediate stops.

How do you see the future of travel? We offer you to be among the first to have a say. Here, if one of us has an idea and a way to prove it, you will have the grounds to do it. We continually challenge each other to think unrestrained. You will have the chance to make a real impact on society. Above all, you will also have the best fun with us at our beautiful office and test facility locations in Delft. Those who are part of the team claim they got more than they bargained for. Do you have what it takes to join?
