Information about the position

Job description, responsibilities and duties

Do you want to have a dream job in technology development? Do you want to be a part of a team that aims to design a new plasma drilling technology that will change the drilling industry? Are you an expert in the area of CFD, especially for multi-phase problematics? Are you also skilled in Stress analysis, especially for dynamic loading? Are you able to take responsibility for making strategic recommendations and thus direction of the device design and related technology? Would you like to exercise your expertize in the environment where creativity and innovativeness are every day part of work?

Your job will be:
• Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) of the Plasma Drilling Bits designs (newtonian & non-newtonian fluid dynamics, mixtures of liquids and gases, sub-critical and supercritical fluids)
• Stress analysis of the Plasma Drilling Bits (the effect of weight on the bit, different CTEs, mechanical shocks from drilling, environmental pressure & temperature effects, etc.)
• Optimization of the Plasma Drilling Bits based on the performed analysis (cooling system of the Drill Bit, drilling fluid and plasma nozzles geometry, materials selection, etc.)
• Writing analysis reports
• Risk assessment of the designed tools & operational procedures

Employee perks, benefits

What we do offer:
• Opportunity to be part of a team of top experts who develop a unique technology solution with a major impact on global energy
• Cooperate with the world’s top
• Participate in research and implement know-how into practice
• Professional education and continuous gaining new experience
• Comfortable parking close by the company building, work in a pleasant environment, flexible working time, extra day offs, fresh fruits and vegetables daily and many others

Personality requirements and skills

We will be glad to know you, if you have:
• Technical university degree, specialisation – fluid engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering
• Fluent English
• Ability to get through the depth of a technical problem
• Innovative approach to a device construction
• Demonstrable industrial experience of the application of CFD (ANSYS Workbench, CFX and Fluent or OpenFOAM) or experimental techniques in hydrodynamics to enable project success
• Experiences in both CFD and Stress analysis is a key differentiator
• Knowledge and experience in analysis of EM fields is a high advantage
• Work experience in R&D team at least within one of these areas: optimization of design of drill bits for Oil&Gas by performing CFD/Stress analysis, optimization of design of the High power (up to 500 kW) devices with embedded cooling system by performing CFD/Stress analysis, optimization of design of devices that work continuously at temperatures higher than 500 C by performing CFD/Stress analysis, optimization of design of cutting/welding or waste processing plasma torches by performing CFD/Stress analysis


Brief description of the company

We are hi-tech company developing a ground-breaking technology platform PLASMABIT® for milling and deep-drilling.

PLASMABIT® technology enables massive time and cost savings compared to related existing technologies. We open up vast new possibilities in geothermal energy, oil & gas and other industrial segments.

We are world pioneers in plasma milling. Our team of 110+ professionals has successfully accomplished the first ever plasma milling underwater and the first ever plasma milling in a High Pressure/High Temperature environment. First applications are under preparation for release shortly.
