Open position - open application

We are looking for proactive and collaborative employees who are passionate about working with underwater navigation technology.

What do we do?

At Nortek, we develop and manufacture world-leading instruments that collect information about the processes taking place in our oceans. We need to understand more about the role of the oceans in areas such as climate, food production, health, business activities and energy production. Our technology is used, among other things, for studies of coral reefs, navigation of underwater vehicles, measurement of currents and quality assurance of fish farming. The interest in the ocean is increasing, and our company is growing. With us, you will contribute to products that can benefit the climate and millions of people.

What qualifications are we looking for?

We are primarily looking for candidates with a relevant Bachelor's or Master's degree for example in engineering or subsea technology role. We are especially looking for candidates for positions as:

  • Software developer; web-stack (Vue, Node, Azure)
  • Sales Engineer
  • Subsea Robotics and Autonomy Advisor
  • Production Technicians

Relevant work experience is highly regarded and can compensate for a lack of formal or academic education.

To succeed in the role, it is important that you have the following personal qualities:

  • You are proactive and genuinely committed to finding good solutions
  • You have a sincere desire to share and develop your knowledge
  • You are structured, responsible and can follow up your tasks and connections in a trust-building manner
  • You are results-oriented, self-motivated and thrive in an environment where no two days are the same
  • You collaborate easily with others and contribute to a good working environment
  • You have good communication skills in English and preferably also Norwegian, written and spoken.

What can we offer?

We are committed to your success with us and ensure that you receive good onboarding from the start. In addition to a digital introductory program, you will be enrolled in the Nortek Academy - an in-person introductory program that provides insights about all of the teams and processes happening at Nortek. It is also a great opportunity to meet other new employees from Norway and our 8 global subsidiaries physically (i.e. UK, USA, Brasil, France, Netherlands, China, Japan, Australia).

At Nortek, you will be involved in many exciting tasks! You will experience great personal and professional development opportunities and gain valuable insights into our business.

Although we are established in many countries, as a Norwegian-owned company we have managed to maintain an informal tone and short decision-making paths. As an employee with us, it will give you great opportunities to influence our future and you will hopefully see the result of what you are working on relatively quickly. With us, you will feel that your contribution makes a big difference.

Our culture, employee well-being and a good working environment are important to us. We have a good diversity of nationalities, ages and professional backgrounds. We generally have low turnover and high job satisfaction.

Please specify in your application which role and location is preferred.


About Nortek Group

Nortek designs, develops and produces scientific instruments that apply the Doppler principle to underwater acoustics in order to measure water in motion, such as currents and waves.

We provide truly innovative, robust, and accurate instruments, backed up by advanced software and comprehensive support to ensure customers maximize value from their measurements.

Our solutions make a big difference.

These instruments are used by scientists, researchers and engineers at renowned institutions and government agencies worldwide. They are employed in demanding environments that require state-of-the-art instrumentation that is reliable and easy to use.

Our exploratory devices help cast light on the workings of the world’s oceans, which occupy vast swathes of the planet, but are still little understood.

Most of Nortek’s technology is based on a scientific physical principle called the Doppler effect. This relates to the change in frequency (or pitch) when a sound source moves with respect to an observer.

By measuring these changes in frequency/phase, our instruments accurately measure profiles of speed and direction of complex water motion.

Nortek’s product portfolio ranges from wave measurement systems to single-point turbulence sensors and oceanic current profilers. Our product range covers four themes: ocean waves, ocean currents, turbulent flow and subsea navigation.

Our objective is to excite users with useful, innovative technology underpinned by oceanographic science and research. We work systematically with quality and are certified by leading quality assurance organizations.
