Electrical Engineer

Job description


As one of our Electrical Engineers you will play a key-role in the development of core hyperloop technologies. You will be part of the Tractive team and you will be responsible for conceptualizing, modeling, designing, procuring, and testing electrical systems. The systems might include the vehicle’s electronics and power systems, instrumentation networks, data acquisition units, power cables, electrical safety units, etc.


As our electrical engineer your responsibilities will include:

  • Owner and reference point of all electrical systems related topics
  • Work through the entire product cycle, from design until testing of the vehicle’s electronics and power systems
  • Define and implement the vehicle’s electrical safety systems
  • Design the system’s instrumentation networks and select the needed sensing and data acquisition components
  • Perform calculations and simulations of the electrical system’s performance and efficiency
  • 3D design and modeling of the vehicle’s electrical system and wiring harness
  • Work together with engineers within and outside the Tractive team
  • Work together with partners, suppliers, and Hardt’s supply chain manager to ensure the quality and compatibility of the delivered products

Job requirements


  • Minimum of 3 years of experience related to the position
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in the field of Electrical Engineering or other related fields
  • Hands-on experience with physical prototyping and testing of electrical systems
  • Knowledge of design and testing of low voltage electronics and instrumentation networks
  • Knowledge of design and testing of high-power storage and distribution systems
  • Knowledge of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (shielding/grounding)

Next to that it would be nice when you have:

  • Experience in 3D modeling (Siemens NX or similar)
  • Experience in communication systems
  • Knowledge of electric machines
  • Knowledge of electromagnetism


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 Rotterdam. Do you have what it takes to join?
