We develop everything from combat, communications and security systems, to mixed reality and cyber security solutions. Over 30 years, we’ve built a proud reputation of driving solutions that keep us ahead of today’s complex challenges and are now seeking our employees of tomorrow to join our thinking edge, as we head toward our next innovative chapter.


Apply today to join our crew and deliver solutions with purpose.

The role

As a member of the Maritime group, the Field Service Engineer will liaise directly with other industry contractors, shipbuilders, ship production staff, schedulers and other stakeholders to ensure the efficient coordination, scheduling and execution of Saab’s work on-board ships, at land-based test sites and other customer locations.

Further, the successful candidate will:

  • Perform engineering documentation reviews, draft and review closing reports
  • Perform repairs on combat systems equipment
  • Perform technical work on the 9LV CMS and other related subsystems, including fault diagnosis and configuration support
  • Undertake some local, interstate and, possibly, international travel.


About you

Your skills and experience will include:

  • Five plus years in a technical capacity on-board a warship and/or a shipyard
  • Interfacing with shipyard staff on production readiness and technical issues
  • Solving complex technical issues
  • Negotiating complex technical issues and ship schedules with all levels of staff
  • Significant knowledge of naval combat systems equipment including sensors and weapons
  • Certificate 3 in a technical discipline (essential)
  • Experience working with 9LV CMS and related processes (desirable)
  • Certificate 4 in a technical discipline (desirable)
  • Tertiary qualifications in a technical discipline (Science, Technology or Engineering) (desirable).
