Asset Diagnostics Expert

We are a department of more than 12 experts who follow the condition of Wärtsilä four-stroke engines and report deviations from expected behavior to customers. We use the digital tool “Expert Insight”, which tells us if some of the sensor data on the engine is outside of what can be considered normal for the engine type, and also if something has drastically changed within the engines. Data from engine sensors come from the field via an internet connection and the digital tool uses artificial intelligence and rules set up by engine experts. The engines we monitor are primarily on ships under maintenance agreements where there is a dedicated team of Wärtsilä experts delivering services for the customer.


What are your main task and responsibilities?

We look for engineers with a hands-on background who are comfortable giving advice to customers about four-stroke engines when something is noticed to be deviating. Many of us have experience in marine operation (chief engineer etc), engine field service, R&D, engine manufacturing or similar. We are comfortable working with numbers in the form of tables and graphs and understand the mathematics behind them, although we are not mathematicians or IT engineers ourselves. We do routine work in the form of sending notifications and reports to customers, thereby proactively keeping engines in good condition.

We are looking for reinforcements to our department. We offer you tutoring to get into the role, and after that continuous training and skills updating so that you will be a full-fledged expert on four-stroke engine diagnostics. You will work in a team where everyone is supporting each other and sharing their success stories and lessons learned. You will get to work with state-of-the-art digital tools (including artificial intelligence) and be part of a modern, global business. Your customers will be located all over the world and you will be working in English only.


Requirements for the position

  • B.Sc. or M.Sc degree in mechanical engineering or similar.
  • Background knowledge on four-stroke engines, marine engineering, experience as an onboard engineer or engine mechanic is all seen as merits. While we do not work in the field, the ability to grasp the practical aspects of engines is still needed.
  • Willingness to work in a structured way with routine work
  • Willingness to work as an expert and team player
  • Willingness to work with digital tools, numbers, notifications, and reports. You do not need to be an IT expert, and you will receive training, but you will need to be active and fully proficient in using computers and digital tools in your daily work.
  • Good written and verbal communication skills as well as proficiency in English is required
