INNOVASEA - Aquatic Solutions Built for Life

Innovasea is revolutionizing aquaculture by combining technological know-how with hands-on industry expertise to deliver innovative, end-to-end solutions that maximize grow-out from egg to harvest - whether on land or in the open ocean.

While our systems are precision engineered around each customer's unique siting, production and monitoring needs - and built to withstand the harshest environments - the outcomes of our work are uniform: Optimized species health. Scaled-up operations. Stable equipment costs. And a partner who's invested in seeing the customer succeed. Today. Tomorrow. For life.

Role and Responsibilities
We are seeking an RAS Facility Automation Architect who will be responsible for applying advanced factory automation concepts and techniques to land-based recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) for both hatchery/nursery facilities and land-based grow-out facilities.

The position is responsible for defining facility level control architectures supporting core systems as well as ancillary systems such as feeding, lighting, effluent treatment, etc. The objective of these systems is to both reduce the operator workload and the knowledge and experience level required of operators. The application of machine learning and AI techniques to the facility automation systems is expected. Knowledge of PLC based control systems and the ability to design complex systems for automation and monitoring is required. The RAS Facility Automation Architect will be responsible for maintaining up to date knowledge on automation technologies and Industry 4/Smart Factory concepts as they relate to current/future projects.

The position will work with control system engineers for the early stages of the control systems lifecycle and their integration into the facility automation system. The position will work with the software architects supporting other aquaculture products and systems to provide an integrated, cohesive, user experience. Ultimately, the position will define and help implement new Aquaculture Solutions for Land Based, Near Shore and Open Ocean aquaculture solutions.
