Despite everything we know, the earth still has its mysteries. Beneath the surface, it is ever-changing and there is still much to understand. At Nanometrics, we develop industry leading instrumentation and services used to measure and record the very precise movements of the earth. Our innovative products and services are deployed in the most remote locations on the earth - from the bottom of the ocean to the peak of the Matterhorn Mountain - to study man-made and natural seismicity. As a member of the Nanometrics team, you will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with all areas of the business to expand the boundaries of seismic research and explore the unknown/discover the inner workings of our planet.
You have exceptional communications skills and are goal oriented with a focus on results for the customer. You pride yourself on being a team player with a high level of ethics and integrity. You always have a keen attention to detail. You have also been a professional Geoscientist in the Oil & Gas or related industry and have prior experience with real-time local or regional seismic network data acquisition, management and analysis.
