Electro Magnetics Engineer

Job description


The Magnetics Engineer plays a key-role in the development of the hyperloop. In this role you will manage the development process of the magnetic systems of the hyperloop. You will support and manage in all aspects of magnetics engineering, magnet levitation & modeling, integrated design for hyperloop system engineering.


As Magnetics Engineer your responsibilities will include:

  • Responsible for the design, simulation, and testing of electromagnetic systems for the levitation and propulsion systems of the hyperloop
  • Simulate and analyze existing and new electromagnetic systems using FEA (COMSOL)
  • Design and generate mechanical drawings for manufacturing and production
  • Define and conduct system and subsystem test plans for integration into hyperloop systems
  • Stay current on latest and emerging principles in magnetism and technology based on (ferro)magnetic materials
  • Understand and improve upon performance, as well as improve specifications and direction for suppliers
  • Close collaboration with colleagues in the different teams, interacting with partners in the ecosystem
  • Documentation and presentation of progress

Job requirements


  • Bsc, Master’s or PhD degree in Applied physics, Electrical engineering, or other related fields
  • Minimum of 2 years of experience in magnetic system design
  • Deep knowledge on the fundamentals of electromagnetism and electric machines
  • Experience in the full design cycle of electromagnetic systems: Conceptualization, design, analysis, and testing
  • Experience in numerical analysis, FEM analysis, and validation of magnetic systems
  • Experience in the generation of mechanical drawings and design for manufacturing
  • Experience in managing and collaborating with external parties and suppliers
  • Proficiency in COMSOL
  • Previous experience in the design of linear electric motors
  • Knowledge of MATLAB and Simulink
  • Knowledge of magnetic sensing technologies
  • Ability to adhere to deadlines and work on multiple projects simultaneously


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. Those who are part of the team claim they got more than they bargained for. Do you have what it takes to join?
