El Segundo, CA, USA
Posted on Tuesday, January 23, 2024

Radiant Industries is an El Segundo, CA-based startup developing Kaleidos, a portable, containerized nuclear microreactor. Portable nuclear power with rapid deploy capability can replace diesel generators used today to provide critical asset support for hospitals, datacenters, and military bases or to power microgrids at remote sites. Radiant’s unique, practical approach to nuclear development utilizes modern software engineering to rapidly achieve safe, factory-constructable microreactors leveraging existing, well-qualified materials. Radiant is on a fast track to demonstrate the first fueled operation of a new commercial nuclear reactor design, just three years from now.

Senior Integration Engineer

Radiant is seeking a Senior Integration Engineer to own and develop Radiant’s electrical architecture and hardware-in-the-loop system for Kaleidos. You will be responsible for the end-to-end development from requirements gathering, hardware sourcing and development, integrating HITL into our software systems, and completing through commission.
