The Boring Company was founded to solve the problem of soul-destroying traffic by creating an underground network of tunnels. Today, we are creating the technology to increase tunneling speed and decrease costs by a factor of 10 or more with the ultimate goal of making Hyperloop adoption viable and enabling rapid transit across densely populated regions.
As a GNC Engineer, you will be responsible for pushing the technical boundaries of tunneling control systems. You will work with a talented team of accomplished engineers to develop, analyze, and test machines and subsystems for highly reliable tunneling. You should thrive in fast-paced, dynamic environments where you adapt quickly and love to solve hard problems.
Develop innovative guidance, navigation, and control systems for Boring Company tunnel boring machines, including Godot and Prufrock
Engage in multi-disciplinary machine investigations and design work that define the systems architecture
Implement new software or algorithms to enable mission unique capabilities and leading edge launch vehicle performance
Develop 6-DOF dynamics simulation models used for GNC systems analysis and validation
Analyze TBM trajectories, performance dispersions, and stability
Conduct post tunneling data review and correlation with analyses for continued improvement of predictions
Support tunneling operations of machines that you enabled
Perform testing of GNC software utilizing hardware-in-the-loop testing, Monte Carlo analysis, and algorithm unit testing
Bachelor's degree in physics or an engineering discipline
Experience with control systems, orbital mechanics, classical dynamics, modeling and simulation
Experience with the software languages Python and C++
Preferred Skills and Experience
Postgraduate degree in physics or an engineering discipline
