Project Developer


Hardt is looking for an experienced project developer for hyperloop route development study projects. The role entails the set-up, management, and successful delivery of feasibility studies to work towards commercial hyperloop initiatives. Developing the hyperloop from concept towards implementation not only requires proving its feasibility, but also on creating broad support by relevant stakeholders. The early involvement in the process increases the support base during the final realization. Therefore, we are seeking a project developer with proven capability in project development in a complex stakeholder environment, experienced with projects in the transportation or logistics industries.


As our Project Developer your responsibilities will include:

  • Operate as main point of contact for clients and partners across projects.
  • Setup, manage, and deliver feasibility studies and business cases for hyperloop initiatives.
  • Advise Hardt’s clients on their potential opportunity and best practices.
  • Explore opportunities to progress from feasibility study towards hyperloop pilot routes.
  • Lead the project delivery team to exceed clients' requirements and ensure projects are completed with high quality, on time and within budget.
  • Venture into a complex public/private stakeholder environment and ensure all that all noses point in the same direction.
  • Convey the higher goal to commit all involved in the project. Your approach to project delivery steers the project towards this goal: realizing the hyperloop.
  • Strive for continual knowledge transfer and understanding of hyperloop towards Hardt’s clients and partners. It is your task to show the opportunities for all involved in this upcoming market.

What we like to see

  • Extensive work experience in transport or logisitics.
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Business, or Management with a strong focus towards technology and transportation.
  • Passion for engineering is a pre.
  • Exceptional communication skills: you will be engaging with high-level decision makers in public and private sector.
  • Deep understanding of the societal and economic transformation new transportation can unlock.
  • Ability to see business as a whole; you must be able to see the implications of your findings with regards to the bigger picture.
  • Demonstrated expertise in project management, research infrastructure and public-private partnerships.
  • Excellent communication skills in English — both written and verbal.
  • Excellent communication skills in Dutch, German, or French — both written and verbal is a pre.
  • Ability to deal with ambiguity, be assertive and manage multiple priorities.
  • Flexibility in working hours and willingness to travel within and outside Europe.

The company

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?
