Department Structures in service area Offshore Infrastructure & Technology in business area Energy Systems in DNV is a leading competence center within assessments of load bearing structures, serving the offshore industry across ocean-based sectors. A total work force of 100 highly skilled engineers are working in teams of world leading experts within aspects of structural integrity of load bearing structures such as fixed and floating wind turbines, solar plants, oil and gas structures, fish farms and floating infrastructures.

What we offer

We are looking for candidates who have ambitions to grow as specialists within structural engineering. The candidate will be given excellent opportunities to grow their expertise through project work, technology and service development, and solving complex matters for the ocean-based industry. Our projects cover all sides of structural integrity related matters including assessments of environmental loads, foundations and mooring systems, structural behavior, functionality and capacity of structures, asset integrity management, life extension, decommissioning and marine operations during temporary phases.

The Structural Engineer reports to Head of Section and is a member of a highly skilled team of 40 highly skilled engineers located at Høvik (Oslo), Trondheim and Stavanger. These experts are working in two equally sized sections responsible for structural analyses and capacity checks, i.e. the sections Fixed Structures and Floating Structures. The two sections work very integrated, e.g., the two sections mutually share their resources depending on project requirements and individual development needs. The sections are seated in common office landscapes. The collaboration between the sections ensures that employees can work on a wide range of projects and develop a broad understanding.

The two sections serve clients with advisory and verification services both in single discipline projects owned by own unit as well as multidisciplinary projects owned by other parts of DNV across ocean-based sectors. Primary tasks of this role are structural FE analyses and structural capacity assessments for a wide range of offshore load bearing structures within segments of renewables, oil & gas, aquaculture and floating infrastructure. Our engineers work both as project team members and project managers and contribute with technology and service development, customer interaction and tendering work dependent on seniority and demand.

Both sections are currently recruiting. If you have preferences to one section over the other or to any of the three office locations, please include this information in your application. We will do our best in accommodating when coordinating all applicants.
