We’re all about solving climate change through fusion energy, one stellarator at a time. Our impressive team of globally recognized fusion scientists along with veteran business leaders with experienced in scaling energy technologies, came together with the ambition to fulfill the bold decadal vision of commercial fusion.

If changing the world wasn’t incentive enough, here’s why you should join us:


We designed, built, and operated the world’s leading stellarators.


We aim to commercialize fusion energy in 10 years.


We know what we’re doing - our leadership team has over 150 years of experience combined.


We’ve already been recognised for our work by the Department of Energy through awards and funding.


Our philosophy accepts no intellectual boundaries and celebrates creativity.


If you are searching for the best new ideas and share our vision, join us as a “Lead Mechanical and/or Electrical Engineer”.

The ideal candidate will be responsible for leading interdisciplinary teams in designing, prototyping, and testing complex electromechanical systems for our stellarator fusion device, including high temperature superconducting magnets.

This role requires a deep understanding of both electrical and mechanical engineering principles, along with hands-on experience in building functional prototypes. The successful candidate will play a critical role in driving innovation and bringing cutting-edge fusion technologies from concept to reality.
