As a device engineering apprentice, you will help develop a device that collects and transmits various sensor data on oil/gas wells. There are high demands for data accuracy as this data is what feeds into our AI system. You will also update existing systems on the field to manipulate actuators remotely as well as continually miniaturize our systems both physically and in terms of power requirement. Various communication protocols such as Cat-M1, GPS and BLE are used, as well as implementation of processing on-the-edge.
