Posted 3 months ago

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.

Requirements

  • 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

Basic Qualifcations

  • 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

  • 2+ years of professional experience in control systems, classical dynamics, sensors and actuators, modeling and simulation, and the software languages C++ and Python

  • Demonstrated project or professional experience in underground (or other non-GPS) positioning systems.

  • Capable of solving complex problems with little to no supervision on schedule as an individual or as a member of an integrated team

  • Passion for advancing the technology of the mining industry and improving the way people get from point A to point B.

  • Excellent communication skills both written and verbal

Culture

We're a team of dedicated, smart, and scrappy people. Our employees are passionate about our mission and determined to innovate at every opportunity.

Benefits

We offer employer-paid medical, dental, and vision coverage, a 401(k) plan, paid holidays, paid vacation, certification reimbursement and a competitive amount of equity.
