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 Turbomachinery Engineer
Radiant is seeking a highly motivated senior turbomachinery engineer to develop turbomachinery in support of a simply recuperated, supercritical CO2 (sCO2) Brayton engine. This candidate will have the opportunity to work in a fast-paced startup environment to develop power generation hardware to enable portable nuclear micro-reactors. This role consists of developing turbomachinery hardware at the heart of the sCO2 heat engine while considering long term production requirements related to hardware performance, reliability, mass, and cost. The ideal candidate is experienced in building early concept hardware components through production and are excited about our vision to power remote communities with clean, portable and reliable nuclear energy.
