Planet Ocean ecoSUB Robotics Division is Recruiting!
Planet Ocean ecoSUB Robotics Division are seeking two talented individuals to join their small team to develop their capabilities at this next crucial growth phase of the technology.
Planet Ocean’s ecoSUB Division is based within the Marine Robotics Innovation Centre within the National Oceanography Centre Southampton.
ecoSUB Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are robotic platforms at the leading edge of subsea technology development. They are affordable, intelligently designed and extremely disruptive to the market, markedly increasing accessibility to a wide range of users in research, offshore energy, and defence markets. Following the release of production systems, the ecoSUB division is in the process of growing a strong team of talented engineers to advance the system and achieve the growth plan.
Senior Robotics & Embedded Software Engineer
This position will primarily be responsible for software development for the ecoSUB AUV. The embedded software is very much at the heart of the AUV system and as such is the lead engineering role. This role involves working closely with mechanical and electronics development to ensure complete system functionality and cohesive operation. The role is primarily R&D focused with aspects of existing system support. The Senior Robotics & Embedded Software Engineer role will involve supporting colleagues and will benefit from career development opportunities and excellent compensation. The role will involve fieldwork and travel, with time spent at sea guaranteed. Required offshore training will be provided.
Production, Procurement & Test Manager
ecoSUB AUVs are self-contained electro-mechanical systems produced in small batches. The Production, Procurement & Test Manager role is responsible for production and testing of the ecoSUB AUV and associated products. This role involves working closely with R&D engineers across software, mechanical and electronics to ensure complete system functionality and cohesive operation. The role is primarily associated with the procurement of materials, system build and testing, liaison with sub-contractors and suppliers, documentation, and quality control. This is a new role within the ecoSUB team and requires the successful candidate to grow the ecoSUB teams’ capability to efficiently build and deliver production systems as well as supporting R&D’s test requirements. The role will involve future recruitment and development of a wider team to deliver the capacity and services required by the division. The role will involve fieldwork and travel, with time spent at sea guaranteed. Required offshore training will be provided.
