Job Description

Opportunity for a Systems Engineer to join Silverstream Technologies, the market leader in clean marine technology.

Silverstream Technologies has successfully developed and deployed a market-leading clean marine technology solution over the last ten years – The Silverstream® System. Our Air Lubrication System (ALS) fundamentally changes the interaction between water and a vessel’s hull, creating a carpet of microbubbles that coats the flat bottom of a vessel. As a result, frictional resistance is reduced – dramatically improving a vessel’s fuel consumption and associated emissions.

Role Summary
As a Systems Engineer at Silverstream Technologies, you'll play a vital role in providing marine systems expertise to our cutting-edge business. Your responsibilities will span from developing and maintaining core control and automation solutions to applying them to projects and supporting our in-service fleet.
