Requisition ID: 1428817
Req Number: 17206BR
Saudi Aramco is seeking a Mechanical and Robotics Design Engineer to work as an expert robotics designer in the Intelligent Systems Team, under the Oil & Gas Network Integrity Division (O&GNID) within the Research and Development (R&D) Department.
O&GNID focuses on rapid technology development aimed at providing solutions for integrity-related challenges. O&GNID aims to decrease the annual cost of corrosion and its related activities including inspection, monitoring, and maintenance. You will join the Intelligent Systems Team where you will contribute to their research and development portfolio that includes intelligent systems and robotics solutions for integrity monitoring, reliability enhancement, and inspection technologies. Intelligent Systems is a multidisciplinary team and will require you to contribute to the overall creation of various robotic solutions based on your specialty and assignment.
You will be contributing as a mechanical design engineer. This role requires you to design new mechanical systems to meet project objectives related to the prototyping, validation, and deployment of intelligent systems or robotic technologies. You must demonstrate your ability to develop and mentor young engineers in specialized areas of product design, robotics, magnetic-based movements, statics and dynamics, various locomotion systems, integrity, and condition monitoring, and mechanical control systems. You must be able to exhibit skills in developing innovative, robust, and reliable robotic solutions to novel applications, including: challenging manipulation, locomotion, perception, and inspection tasks. You will also have the ability to lead development tasks/projects to address challenges experienced by Saudi Aramco operations. This will include coordinating technical team members, performing techno-economic analyses, and delivering technical presentations.
As the successful candidate, you will hold a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering with a focus on mechatronics.
You must have at least 10 years of experience in the technological or industrial sector with substantial hands on experience in robotic platforms or automation in an academic, commercial, or industrial setting. This includes having a strong mechanical design background for the purpose of developing intelligent technologies.
You must have excellent command of oral and written English to demonstrate active participation in technology development, technical seminars, and/or original industrial technology deployment. You will have experience with magnetic mechanical systems, inspection and monitoring systems, mechatronics, and machinery. You must have experience in using Computer Aided Design (CAD) Platforms such as SolidWorks, AutoCAD, ProE, or CATIA (SolidWorks is ideal). You should have experience in using manufacturing tools such as Mills, Drills, Truing machining, CNC, and similar tools. A background in programing, control systems, dynamics, instrumentation, mechanics, and design is also preferred along with experience in product development, prototype development, and/or research and development of new mechatronics systems. The desire to work as part of a team in a results-oriented R&D environment.
Duties & Responsibilities:
You will be required to perform the following:
Design and prepare manufacturing packages and assemble new mechanical systems to meet project objectives related to the prototyping, testing, and deployment of intelligent systems or robotic technologies.
Research and develop innovative, robust, and reliable robotic solutions to novel applications including challenging manipulation, locomotion, perception, and inspection tasks.
Mentor and provide advice in a specialized area of technology such as product design, robotics, magnetic-based movements, statics and dynamics, various locomotion systems, integrity and condition monitoring, and mechanical control systems.
File patents and present technical findings in published journal articles and at intracompany meetings.
