Job Description
The U.S. Navy is currently seeking qualified marine engineers to serve as Port Engineers for ships in their Surface Fleet. Navy Port Engineers act as the owner’s representative and serve as the subject matter expert on ship’s systems/equipment and are intimately familiar with the operational and maintenance requirements of their assigned ships to ensure their mission readiness. They are active participants on a Maintenance Team responsible for one or two ships and serve as the Commanding Officer’s primary representative for all off ship maintenance and modernization. As their assigned ship’s life cycle manager, the Port Engineer is expected to be the most knowledgeable person on the material condition of their ships and are responsible for ensuring their ships safely meet their expected service life. Port Engineers engage with senior Navy leadership, government program offices, sailors in the fleet, and shipyard contractors so effective communication and interpersonal skills are essential. Travel is minimal and all shipyard availabilities are conducted in the home port. All Port Engineers are encouraged to visit their ships during deployment in order to plan work packages and to get underway with them as their schedule permits.


Candidates must have the following qualifications: possess or be able to obtain and maintain SECRET government clearance. Bachelor’s degree in Engineering, minimum USCG Third Assistant Engineer License, and at least 5 years of sailing experience in the merchant marine or Navy. Prior Port Engineer experience, involvement with ship repair industry, and knowledge of the Navy’s current maintenance practices is desirable. Candidates must be physically able to enter confined space (i.e. tanks and voids), climb ladders, and masts aboard their assigned ships while in port or at sea in order to validate maintenance requirements.

Positions available in Norfolk, Bahrain, and San Diego.
