Careers

Build Something That Matters

Fuelling our cutting edge technology and energetic work environment is the fact that everyone at General Fusion wants to make a difference to the world. We’re focused on creating a practical approach to fusion power, and our workplace reflects that.

 

The pace is fast, teams are small and agile, and the work is stimulating. Though we’ve grown to become a cutting edge research facility, pragmatism is still at the core of what we do. Physicists, engineers, machinists and computer scientists work side by side to iterate designs, creatively overcome problems, and rapidly develop our technology.

What it’s Like to Work at General Fusion

If you can find a space in our bike room, you’ll discover an active and outgoing team of some of the brightest minds around. Morning coffee rides are as much part of the culture as the lunchtime conversations that inevitably require a whiteboard. We don’t have a foosball table, but strike a balance of lifestyle and benefits that make this a great place to work.
