    Getting to work on such an innovative project is potentially a once in a lifetime opportunity. The work at NuScale can be quite technical which is a great opportunity if you are a young engineer who wants an opportunity to learn some very important skills for your career. The team I worked with was very nice and always willing to help. I really enjoyed getting to work on the project and learning the skills I did while I interned there.


    As with any startup the company has certain growing pains it is working through. Also, the NuScale reactor is not a done deal by any means, but I think that adds to the satisfaction of the work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, stay strong and lets get this done!

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at NuScale Power (Corvallis, OR).


    Located me through recruiter searching LinkedIn.
    Phone screen interview with executive I would report to.
    On-site interviews with executive team, 5 people total, including COO and two VPs. Would have been more but some were out sick. Corvallis is somewhat remote, so one day of interviews took 3 days total. Interviews were professional, no curve balls thrown. I already knew a couple (COO & VP) through prior professional interactions, so that may have made things easy. Really nice discussions more than interviews. Most interviews were one-on-one, except two VPs took me to lunch. Good group of people. Support staff very helpful. Everyone courteous and made me feel welcome.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was fair for position. Company is a start-up, I felt they could do more to offset risk. The offer did not meet my needs given disruption to personal situation (children are Sr, Jr, Fr in HS) and no help with finding spouse new job. I would have lost money, and happy where I am at. Would have taken great offer to get to go (I was clear on that up-front).

NuScale Power has created a new kind of nuclear plant, a smaller, scalable version of pressurized water reactor technology, designed with natural safety features.

 The NuScale plant uses natural forces to operate and cool the plant. This eliminates the need for many of the large and complex systems required in today’s nuclear plants. This simplicity allows the NuScale Power Module to be factory-built and transported to site. This makes NuScale plants faster to construct, and less expensive to build and operate.

 Each NuScale Power Module generates 45 megawatts of... More
