Careers

Safety and Certification Lead

Full-time

The hyperloop is developed with a zero-accidents ambition and safety is therefore of the highest priority. Hardt is looking for the person who can rise to the challenge to be the owner on the topic of safety for hyperloop development and implementation. It is your job to ensure that hyperloop is developed as a safe product and complies with all the safety requirements. This is an especially challenging task since there are no safety regulations or approval processes for hyperloop yet. You will work together with the Standards Lead, management, business development team, independent assessors, and government bodies to ensure the establishment of an appropriate regulatory framework and approval process for hyperloop. You will form the foundations for a legacy of safety for all future hyperloop systems.

Responsibilities

As our Safety and Certification Lead your responsibilities will include:

  • Performing structured approaches to discover risks and developing mitigation measures
  • Writing and compiling safety-related standards
  • Ensuring compliance of the developed products to safety-related requirements
  • Compiling the certification roadmap and ensuring agreement with regulators and notified bodies
  • Communicating with regulators and notified bodies
  • Ensuring the establishment of a regulatory framework for hyperloop systems

What we like to see

  • Minimum of 10 years of experience related to safety in transport systems.
  • Multidisciplinary experience (e.g. rail and aviation) is prefered.
  • Exceptional teamwork skills.
  • Exceptional presentation and reporting skills.
  • Master’s degree in the field of Engineering.
  • Passion for engineering.
  • Availability to work extended hours if needed.
  • Strong work ethic and drive to be the best.
  • Excellent communication skills in English and Dutch — both written and verbal.
  • Ability to work in a fast paced, autonomous, and demanding atmosphere.
  • Ability to deal with ambiguity, be assertive and manage multiple priorities.

The Team

We are a strong team of highly driven and enthusiastic entrepreneurs. 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.

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?
