As part of a small project team, the Electrical / Electronics Engineer designs, develops and sustains the electronics of Drilling and Measurement tools. During drilling, these tools continually measure rock formation characteristics and steer the well to achieve optimal productivity. The data gathered by an array of sensors is stored in memory, processed and sent to the surface by telemetry. The power generated downhole is also used in actuators and motors to navigate the well to the desired spot.


  • Work in close collaboration with physicist, software and mechanical engineers to develop or sustain a product, in agreement with project technical, timing and cost objectives
  • Analyze the requirements and produce mathematical models to validate by simulation the proposed concept
  • Build prototypes, test in the lab
  • Develop the chosen solution. A company-wide support structure helps at every step of the way, for simulation, CAD, design guidelines, component validation, test development
  • Design qualification tests to ensure the tools operate reliably under the harsh shock and vibrations of drilling, at high temperatures (for example 175C)
  • Prepare documentation for Manufacturing and Maintenance, and also training programs for Field engineers and technicians all over the world.
  • Participate in our award-winning knowledge sharing programs, and in the training programs that accompany the Electrical / Electronics Engineer to improve competency in all disciplines: modeling and simulation, power conversion, analog and digital electronics, metrology, control systems, communications, embedded software, electromechanical, etc.

Qualfications and competencies:

• MS or PhD in electrical engineering or related engineering
• Strong problem-solving skills and technical judgment.
• Strong communication skills are important for presentations, technical reports, papers, but also listening
