Build the clean energy future

Breaking the fusion barrier requires a diverse team of engineers, scientists, and builders. If you are passionate about solving one of the world’s most pressing challenges, join our team.

Helion founders Dr. David Kirtley (CEO) and Chris Pihl (CTO)

Mission-driven

The world needs clean, abundant, and affordable electricity now. Our team is driven to build the world's first commercially-viable fusion power plant. We believe fusion can truly solve climate change on a global scale, keeping our electricity costs low while we ensure that clean water, the internet, air conditioning, and quantum computing are available to everyone, now and in the future.

Hands-on

We are actively building fusion systems. This sets us apart from other fusion companies who mainly theorize and use 3D models. We question assumptions and we like to pull things apart and put them back together again.

Team-oriented

We are creators, thinkers, and doers. Every team member brings a unique set of skills and a valuable perspective to Helion. When we work together, innovation happens.

Equal-opportunity

We are committed to having a diverse and inclusive workforce. Our diversity makes us more innovative. We take pride in the wide range of backgrounds our leadership and team members bring to Helion and support equal opportunities to thrive.

This is unquestionably the coolest job I have ever had.

Jim, Fusion Electronics Technician

Over the course of my PhD, I saw that a lot of the PIs and research advisors don't get to build anymore really. Helion was a great opportunity to keep doing what I enjoy—building things.

Rachel, Fusion Scientist

I’m a self-starter. Here, I can start doing a task and ask questions as I go. I’m not put into a box. I’m able to do lots of stuff that I’m good at versus one thing I’m good at.

Dee, Fusion Engineering Technician

We’re given borderline impossible tasks that no one’s ever done before. And the reason I wanted to work here is because I wanted to make really cool stuff. We make the coolest stuff.

Wes, Senior Fusion Prototype and R&D Technician

I’ve been working here for five years and I’ve seen the progression of each little detail. It’s amazing to see how far we’ve come as a team.

Ryan, Production Manager

I'm constantly learning something new. I'm able to stretch beyond what I've done before.

Ashley, Materials Program Manager

I don’t think there’s another place on Earth that you could have such a fulfilling job. What we’re trying to do here is fundamentally changing humans' relationship to how we exist on the planet.

Andrew, Fusion Engineer

Trenta is making breakthroughs every day. It's a great feeling when it's operating. We know that every time it fires is one step closer to fusion energy for the world.

Anthony, Business Operations

We’re elastic and dynamic enough to make changes when necessary. We’re willing to change directions rapidly when we realize something’s not working.

Ron, Machine Shop Manager

Everybody is on the same team, working towards a common goal. Everybody’s ready to help each other out.

Billy, Senior Electrical Engineer
