Senior SURF Engineer

4Subsea is a leading provider of technology and services that help operators optimise energy production from subsea oil & gas fields and offshore wind farms. We combine domain expertise with data analytics and digital services to maximise lifetime of assets, reduce operational cost and optimise future projects through data-driven design. We are strengthening our SURF project team and are now searching for a senior engineer.

As a SURF engineer, you will be a part of a team of highly skilled engineers and domain experts. You will be involved in solving technical challenges using analytical tools, presenting results by developing, using digital solutions and working in the field (onshore/offshore).

We can offer an interesting role where you’ll get much responsibility and a steep learning curve in a technology-leading company with global outreach. The company was established in 2007, and we have as a team been able to maintain an entrepreneurial and agile mindset over the years.

We are a vision and values-driven company, meaning that we believe that we will succeed, evolve and move forward if we work together as a team and with our customers and partners, using our vision as a guiding light and our values as a basis for everything we do.

If you want an engaging job where your contribution really matters and you enjoy working in a “geeky” environment with stellar engineers and data scientists, we hope to hear from you!
