Are you ready for a challenge?
We invite you to be part of a team accomplishing Transcend’s mission to transform the way engineering firms, utilities, and technology suppliers assess and design critical infrastructure!
​If you’re excited about changing the substation engineering industry, and are passionate about seeing customers succeed, then you should check out Transcend. Our software is being built to be the only product on the market that can automate the preliminary engineering (first 30%) of a substation.
We put an extraordinary amount of effort and expertise into building the best design automation platform on the market today.

Transcend is disrupting the Engineering and Construction industry. Transcend Design Generator (”TDG”), a first-of-its-kind generative design software platform, enables the companies that design our global infrastructure to automate Design & Engineering work that is currently done manually. There is over 500 billion dollars spent on engineering services each year, and capital planning and project developement processes have not changed in decades.  These companies are critical to our future, as they design our power, water, roads, and other core infrastructure. Due to their archaic processes, they are not innovating fast enough to impact our environment and help solve Climate Change. Over the last 10 years Transcend has developed and implemented a cloud-based software that completely changes the traditional process and transforms the culture of these engineering and construction firms around the world. The company has a unique remote culture with offices in Europe and the USA.
