Build the future
of clean energy

We’re looking for brilliant people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to build the world’s first fusion power plant, enabling a future with unlimited clean electricity.

Do what others say is impossible. See risks as opportunities to accomplish what no one has before. Embrace diversity of thought. Innovate. Expect to make mistakes; own them, learn from them, teach from them.

To deliver fusion power to the world, Helion must be trusted, respected, and admired. As representatives of Helion, we each must uphold those same standards. Show humility. Be Honest. Be Kind. Be a good teammate.

Making the world a better place. For everyone, with everyone.

We believe fusion energy can truly change the world. It will solve climate change on a global scale and ensure energy independence while making electricity more affordable than ever before. Ultimately, we are striving to make the world a better place for everyone.

For us, that starts in the workplace.
