Are you up for the challenge? 

Kongsberg Maritime is looking for competent candidates for a challenging position within a team working with control systems deliveries in the maritime sector. As our new Maritime Trainee, you should have an interest in both technical and managerial aspects of Kongsberg Maritime’s operation. Your day-to-day responsibilities will include preparing Dynamic Positioning software for vessels within a variety of different marine operations, interacting with customers and stakeholders, onboard commissioning and certification activities worldwide.

Dynamic Positioning (DP) is one of the cornerstone technologies in KONGSBERG which is a system that automatically maintains a ship’s position and heading by means of propellers and thrusters. This renders possible difficult operations at sea when mooring or anchoring is not feasible. The control system can lock the vessel's position to a fixed point over the seabed or relative to a moving object, such as another ship or an underwater vehicle. Dynamic Positioning is frequently used in the offshore industry in locations such as the North Sea, Persian Gulf, Asia, Gulf of Mexico, West Africa and Brazil.

Our main objective for participating in the Maritime Trainee program is to recruit and develop top talents into future leaders within our division.

If you are looking for a dynamic, international and world class work environment, join us in Kongsberg Maritime.
