Additionally, we are a leader in offshore oilfield maintenance services, umbilicals, subsea hardware, and tooling. We also use applied technology expertise to serve the defense, entertainment, material handling, aerospace, science, and renewable energy industries.

Position Summary

As a Project Electrical Engineer (industry equivalent: Electrical Engineer 4), serve as a vital member of the Oceaneering Aerospace and Defense Technologies (ADTECH) engineering team - an engineering center of excellence, and an exciting part of our dynamic, global enterprise. Within our Oceaneering Technologies (OTECH) group, you will be responsible for performing diverse activities associated with the development and implementation of complex power and control systems for unique underwater robotic and electromechanical systems, helping solve our customers' toughest challenges - typically for US Navy and other US Government Department of Defense customers.

Most of our projects are one-of-a-kind, which means you will never be stagnant and will always work on something new and compelling. And, by "work," we don't just mean "analyze and design" - most of our engineers do not simply sit behind a desk, but when the design is done choose to "get their hands dirty" assisting with building and testing their creations. At Oceaneering, we are committed to "making it work!"

• Experience with DC power systems design.
• Calculate and estimate system power and energy requirements.
• Experience designing, wiring, cabling, grounding for minimizing electrical noise and EMI, as appropriate.
• Good electrical drawing/drafting skills - accurately create and read detailed schematics, wiring diagrams, cable drawings, system cabling and block diagrams, etc.
• Proficiency in proper use and application of various standard electronic test equipment, e.g., VOM/multimeters, oscilloscopes, power analyzers, communications analyzers, "hipot" insulation testers, spectrum analyzers, CTDR, OTDR, optical power meters, etc.
