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.

Systems Engineer

About Us:

General Fusion is transforming how the world is energized by developing the first commercially viable fusion power plant. Fusion will deliver clean, safe and on-demand power at an industrial scale, providing a powerful complement to renewables and a pathway to a zero-emission grid.

Combining new technologies, proven industrial processes, and advances in fundamental fusion science, General Fusion aims to be the first in the world to develop commercial fusion power. Key performance requirements have been demonstrated at the system level, setting the stage for building a pre-commercial fusion power prototype.

  • You can quickly recognize, identify, troubleshoot, and resolve challenges across multiple systems
  • You have the knack for recognizing how challenges within one system may be resolved through changes to one or more different systems
  • You care more about understanding WHAT a system needs to do and less about how it does it
  • You take a full world view as part of your daily routine
  • You appreciate the value in transforming system requirements into clear, concise verification plans
  • You understand and enjoy the framework of a “System of Systems” approach.
  • You enjoy collaborating with driven, passionate individuals across various teams
  • You might not know much about fusion but can’t wait to learn!
  • You want to use your talents to change the world for the better!

If this sounds like you, General Fusion’s Systems Engineer role may be the perfect fit!   

Position Overview:

General Fusion is seeking an experienced Systems Engineer to join our Fusion Demonstration Plant (FDP) team.  The Systems Engineer will take ownership of the Systems Engineering tasks associated with the design and development of several of the Demonstration Plant’s systems.  In this collaborative role, the successful candidate will work closely with Design Engineering to ensure several large electro-mechanical systems are defined, designed, and built to meet the program goals. You don’t need to be an expert in fusion; we will teach you everything you need to know about fusion. You need to be enthusiastic about learning what we’re doing.  Please note, this position is not a software system engineering role.

Key Responsibilities:

(What You’ll Be Doing!)

  • Writing, maintaining, and updating system requirements.
  • Defining systems boundaries, interfaces and interface control documents.
  • Identifying, tracking, deriving, maintaining and updating requirements that stem from interactions that cross system boundaries.
  • Working with the Design Engineering team to ensure that there are appropriate plans in place to verify all requirements and validate the designs throughout the project lifecycle.
  • Tracking the progress of requirements verification and systems validation.
  • Identifying conflicting and challenges in meeting design requirements and or maintaining performance margins; working with the Design Engineering teams and the Director of Program Management to resolve these challenges in a manner that continues to meet the program goals.
  • Identifying conflicting requirements and working with affected stakeholders.
  • Engaging all stakeholders before changing / updating requirements and margin allocations; communicating all changes to all stakeholders.
  • Working with the team developing and maintaining performance models for the FDP to reflect and inform design and requirements changes accurately.
  • Working with the Senior Vice President of Prototype Deployment and their team to capture requirements stemming from assembly, commissioning, testing, operating, servicing, lifetime extension and decommissioning of the demonstration plant.
  • Acting as a systems administrator for managing and maintaining the Systems Engineering information management tools.

Relevant Skills and Experience:

(What You Bring!)

Required:

  • 5+ years of experience as a systems engineer on a multi-disciplinary system-of-systems project or experience as a subject matter expert (e.g., control systems engineer, electro-mechanical engineer, diagnostics engineer, etc.) working with a systems engineer on a system-of-systems project
  • Practical experience transitioning novel, emerging technologies into one-of-a-kind engineering projects
  • Ability to adapt to rapidly changing systems’ designs and requirements
  • Experience writing requirements or designing systems to meet explicitly defined requirements
  • Experience managing and documenting system interfaces
  • Understand the value and limitations of configuration management
  • Effective oral and written communication skills and an ability to work both independently and collaboratively

Preferred:

  • Hands-on experience designing/building/assembling machinery
  • Experience with a systems engineering and or requirements management database
  • Experience writing or executing a Systems Engineering Plan or components of a Systems Engineering Plan (Verification and Validation Plan, Integration Plan, etc.)
  • Experience writing interface definition documents

Education:

Bachelor’s degree in Systems Engineering or other engineering disciplines with relevant industrial experience 

What We Offer:

  • Flexible hours
  • Four weeks’ vacation
  • Comprehensive benefits package
  • RRSP Contribution
  • Support for professional development
  • Great company culture – social events, food trucks, bike rides, Sun Run, etc.
