Join the Team

Our History

After winning all editions of the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition, we have set a new challenge for ourselves. The goal is to build a full-scale prototype with a 24m long vacuum tube until end of 2022. This a huge step forward towards developing an ultra-high-speed ground transportation system. With the help of TUM’s scientific experts and the support of the Bavarian government we will take this program to the next level.

Our Team

However, the team largely constitutes of students even today. Several generations of students have brought us where we are right now. With their enthusiasm, hard-work and sacrifice they have been able to challenge the unimaginable and win 4 out of 4 SpaceX Pod Competitions. Those values are a key part of our spirit and students will therefore continue to play a central role in our new adventure towards the future. We want to give as many students as possible the opportunity, that we once got, to experience working in a great team, that is able to achieve incredible things, and to gain experience and knowledge that they wouldn’t be able to acquire in any university course. 

This doesn’t mean that we only accept students, everyone is welcome to apply to our team.
