Do you want to transform industrial fish farming through responsible design engineering?

Naval Architect/Marine Engineer

Ovum is now looking for a versatile and professionally skilled engineer to strengthen its team of eager “Eggsperts” to enable sustainable growth in the aquaculture industry.

Ovum believes that the current production platform based on open-net pen systems is too weak to sustain significant growth, recognised environmental performance and societal expectation. Ovum’s ambition is to provide a trustworthy and competitive alternative, – floating closed pens. By our excellent team and collaborating partners, Ovum offers the industry a fully contained system in which they address many of current costly challenges that apply in today’s farming.

The company has recently reached a milestone, launching the first version of Egget®, which is 21 meters high, 15 meters wide and may hold 100,000 salmon. This autumn it will be filled with fish and the team is excited about the important learning they will gain for further technology development. Meanwhile, the technology team is working on designing the large version, which is 44 meters high, 31 meters wide and has room for one million salmon.

As a Naval Architect/Marine engineer, you will be responsible for planning and designing engineering projects on board Egget®, in a work environment characterized by high competence and innovation. We are looking for a person who has a good understanding of Naval Architecture within a design environment and with extensive experience in Inventor 3D modelling.

Supporting the technical team with knowledge of the software systems is also a crucial task. You should be structured, a strategic thinker, an effective communicator, and always work with present rules and regulations as a foundation.

Join our team that will transform industrial fish farming with new robust enclosed technology!

  • User, advisor and technical support for Inventor 3D modelling software program
