‘I saw the vacancy for software engineer at MARIN on LinkedIn, and I was amazed to learn about their independent research for the maritime industry. I was interested in joining the company because of their mission of smarter, safer, and cleaner ship operations. Luckily, I cracked the job interview! I’m responsible for developing software applications for project managers, engineers, and clients. I still remember the day I visited MARIN’s facility basins for the first time – I felt like I was in some kind Star Trek movie! It’s really great working at MARIN because they offer an encouraging environment for learning, growing, and excelling."
