It’s a privilege to support Sonardyne, a company that has been writing the future of underwater technology for over 50 years.

Who does Sonardyne recruit?

For technical roles Sonardyne normally hires engineers with A-Levels (or an interest in) maths and physics and degrees in Electronic Engineering, or Engineering degrees that include a variety of disciplines including Electronics, Software Engineering, Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. Candidates with skills in embedded software, wireless communications, autonomous robotics, digital processing, underwater acoustics, general electronics, command and control software, mechanical design and full stack development are particularly relevant.

As an engineering and technology leader Sonardyne suits engineers who enjoy complex technological challenges. A sizeable proportion of its technology team are Research and Development specialists who design both innovative new products and new applications for existing ones. Sonardyne products must function perfectly in physically harsh environments; as such, reliability is a critical requirement of every Sonardyne solution or application and candidates need to demonstrate their ability to focus on quality.

Sonardyne provides ample opportunity for employees to develop and grow with the company, with the option to transition across departments or projects. Many roles also provide the opportunity for substantial travel as the business has customer sites on vessels, in marinas and offshore across the world, as well as its own trial facility in Plymouth.

Sonardyne is increasingly focusing its operations within the growing renewable energy marketplace, further opening up career opportunities for future generations of engineers and in some cases ocean science specialists.
