The Technical Leader in Electronic Hardware is a unique role, which sits within our wider Flexible Pipe systems – Integration Management (FPS-IM) business, involved in the development of electronics for products to inspect and monitor offshore flexible pipes.

Essential Responsibilities:

Delivering a key role in the newly created Services Group of BHGE’s Flexible Pipe business, you will be responsible for the development and maintenance of electronics that operates and controls the products.

Specific responsibilities include:
  • Development and maintenance of the electronic designs for offshore inspection and monitoring products and for experimental and test equipment.
  • Ensuring that the electronic designs deliver results reliably and meet customer requirements.
  • Managing the electronic development function within a quality controlled environment.
  • Contributing to the development of new inspection methods and products.
  • Providing support to other engineering disciplines, to experimental programmes and to product trials.
  • Identifying and overseeing the implementation of new electronic design methodologies, tools and training.
  • Min Bachelors Degree in Electronics Engineering.
  • Proven years experience in design, development, testing and maintenance of electronics in a low volume industrial/commercial environment.
  • Experience of managing tasks and projects, including the writing of specifications and test plans.
  • Design of mixed analogue / digital circuits, including low noise analogue electronics (frequencies from DC to a few MHz)
  • Experience of design for EMC compatibility.
  • Hands on assembly skills to a level suitable for development work.
  • Similar experience in O&G or medical industry
  • Excellent communication skills
