Job Function
Technical Support


We are not looking for job seekers, we are looking for those passionate about what they do.  Those with enthusiasm, drive, focus and the skills to be resourceful.


If working on a variety of high-end underwater sensors and intelligent navigation instruments, along with their mechanical components sounds interesting and dare we say, fun – then you would fit into our amazing team! 


Here at Strategic Robotic Systems (SRS), we are proudly a small, dynamic engineering company that designs and manufactures sophisticated underwater robotic systems. Our collaborative ethos has helped built systems that are currently used by sectors including the military, scientific institutions, and commercial agencies.


About the role:

The Training Technician role seeks a self-motivated, innovative, and highly detail-oriented individual that excels at teamwork in a fast-paced and dynamic environment.  The role will require regular travel both nationally and internationally providing FUSION operator training courses to various Defense and Commercial clients.  Training will often be conducted either in a team of two or independently; so, self-reliance and problem-solving skills, along with the ability to work methodically through challenges that arise, are critical to success.  This is a hands-on role that requires the willingness to execute work as an individual contributor, teach, and train others.   

What’s in it for me?

In addition to a competitive base salary, you will be part of something meaningful and will have the opportunity to make tangible impact from day one.  You will be part of a highly engaged team and growing company who simply love what they do – and believe that diverse and inclusive teams yield the best results.  You will have the opportunity for growth and development in this role and the ability to take on additional responsibilities.
