About this role

We’re looking for someone like you. An engineer who can use their technical skills to solve complex marine calculations.

Most of the time you will be based in Paris, on a 12 months renewable contract.

You’ll use your broad experience to provide Dynamic Positioning (DP) assurance to deep offshore drilling rigs and its support vessels.

Day to day, you will be responsible for reviewing DP documentation, on-site audits/inspections and recommending corrective actions and improvements to the current DP set up.

This is obviously a lot of responsibility, but you won’t be alone.

You’ll be in charge of a team of talented DP engineers who will not only assist you, but test your knowledge and get the most out of your skills.

About you

This role requires experience- a minimum of 10 years’ to be exact. During this time, you’ll have developed an in-depth knowledge of the offshore marine industry and Dynamic Positioning and you’ll have got your Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO) certification.

FMEA studies and DP acceptance test knowledge is a bonus, but don’t worry if not- we still want to hear from you.
