We're looking for new members to join our Spring Team!
Welcome to Waterloop recruitment for the Spring 2018 term! We’re glad you’re interested in joining us to build Canada’s Hyperloop. Read about the team at https://wloop.ca/recruitment! If you have questions at any point, feel free to contact us at join@teamwaterloop.ca.

On average, this form takes about 15 minutes to complete. This form consists of some basic info about you, selection of the teams you're interested in, and three paragraph answer questions.

Applications are due on April 23rd! Ready?
I've read the information document at https://wloop.ca/recruitment. *

This contains descriptions of all the roles listed below, and a summary of your responsibilities as a member. It's important!

What's your first name? *

Hi {{answer_g0vfXXGGAR7P}}. What's your last name? *

If you have one, can we get the link to your LinkedIn profile?

Can we have a copy of your resume? *

What is your term and program? *

Are you on campus or in Waterloo for Spring 2018? *

Are you on a school or co-op term? *

Given your other commitments, can you meet the time commitment of 8-10 hours/week? *

We typically expect a time commitment of 8-10 hours per week from each member, including meetings and independent work; this may change week to week, and generally the more you do the more responsibility you will be given. Additionally, even during busy weeks members must at least keep up with relevant channels on Slack at all times.
Would you be interested in leadership positions? *

We are recruiting for some lead positions this term! Expectations will be significantly higher (perhaps 15-20hr/wk, with extra meetings), but the experience of course will be much more rewarding, as you have ownership over a significant aspect of the team. We are looking for fully dedicated members who have strong leadership skills, can hold others accountable but fill in the gaps where needed, make and follow organized timelines, and have the passion and time to become the team’s expert in their domain.

If you're interested, talk about your leadership experience in the short answer questions too!
What team are you interested in joining? *

Descriptions of all roles are in the recruitment document at https://wloop.ca/recruitment.


The Electrical group is in charge of moving power and control signals around the pod. It is an incredibly high-power system controlled by delicate electronic devices, and must be very safely designed and implemented.


The Mechanical group deals with all the hardware on the pod. This is arguably the hardest part of the challenge! Don't be afraid to challenge yourself to try and learn new things. Each Mechanical sub-team has its own unique set of challenges and skills required for the team. But, for all of the following, there are a few skills in common that would be good to have:

- Hands-on engineering experience of any kind (very important!)
- CAD & FEA experience


Overall, the Software group is tasked with everything to do with code on our Pod, whether it be control, sensors, communications, or human interfaces. Some past coding experience is usually required, as this is the most popular group for new applicants.


While the technical groups develop the technology, the business team connects our work with the larger world. We reach out with our website, media, and marketing teams, and obtain and manage huge amounts of resources with our sponsorship and finance teams. We attend conferences and hold events to promote the Hyperloop idea, and support the technical work we’re doing with logistical and creative talent.


For the past few years, we have worked on building hyperloop pods, but we only got to test them on a real full scale track when we went to SpaceX for hyperloop competition. In coming months and years we plan to change that. We plan on building a hyperloop track in Canada. It will allow us to test our prototypes when we feel like and provide us an opportunity to grow hyperloop technology by iterating on the work we have done. We will also be recruiting a team to design a competition that will use the track during its off-season. We are recruiting members who can help us plan, design and help construct this hyperloop track and competition. There will be massive learning opportunities for people who are into civil engineering and in general interested in building this track.

Why are you interested in Waterloop, and in the subteam(s) you chose? *

Given your current skill set, how do you think you can best contribute as a team member? *

As a member of Waterloop, what would you like to learn, and how might we help? *

Thanks for applying, {{answer_g0vfXXGGAR7P}}!! We'll be reading applications as they come in and we'll get back to you soon :)
