Specialist, Wireline Logging

This job posting is no longer active.


We are looking for a Field Deployment Specialist (Specialist, Wireline Logging) who will be based out of our Houston, Texas, office. You will be responsible for deploying DarkVision’s technology in various jobs and well types across the continental US. You’ll be working with various oil and gas operators, service companies, deployments systems, and personnel, and will be personally responsible for the successful execution of each job. The essential characteristics of the successful candidate are that they are very hard-working and a self-starter. Also, the ability to travel and spend lots of time in the field is an absolute must in this role. You’ll be supported by our Operations and Engineering teams, but you’ll be the person on-site responsible for the job, along with communications to the customer. 

What You Will Do In Your Role

Everything & Anything: There will be a wide assortment of standard and not-so-standard tasks that you’ll be expected to complete, both inside and outside the typical field deployment umbrella. The role has an entrepreneurial side so that no task will be either above or beneath you. 

Deployments: Successfully deploy the technology in wells, including mobilization, rig-up, rig-down, communications with site personnel and service companies, and ultimately oversee the deployment of the products in each customer’s well. 

Travel: The successful candidate will travel throughout the US. They may also travel internationally to deploy the technology with various oil and gas operators. Travel is a critical component of the job, and a flexible personal life that can support a career where time away from home is the norm is an absolute must. You shouldn't apply for this job if you don’t want to be out of town. 

Preparation for Jobs: Ensuring that tools, parts, trucks, and critical equipment are checked, cleaned, calibrated, and verified for each job is a natural part of deploying the technology. Taking care of the tools, fixing, cleaning, testing, and refurbishing. 

Communications: Quick, clear, and effective communication with customers, site personnel, and DarkVision staff is your responsibility. This ensures deployments are successful and everyone has the information they need. 

Troubleshooting: Deploying new technology naturally necessitates troubleshooting problems that arise on-site in real-time. You’ll be supported by the engineering and operations teams, but the ability to figure things out quickly, improvise and succeed under pressure will be critical to overall job success. The capacity to both anticipate and solve field problems is paramount. 

Product Input & Feedback: Provide feedback and ideas on improving the product, technology, and operational processes to increase efficiency, quality, and scalability of the overall business. Feedback from the field is critical and will be incorporated directly into the engineering team to improve existing and future products. 

The Experience You Will Bring


  • Wireline/Logging Experience - Experience deploying other types of logging technologies using wireline, tractor, coil, or other deployment methods. 
  • Oil Field service experience working with US operators or service companies. 
  • Must be located near Houston, Texas or willing to relocate at your own cost; no rotation or housing provided.
  • Ability to Travel (75%) - there is a significant amount of time away from home travelling and performing work in the field. The successful candidate must be able and willing to sustainably perform large amounts of fieldwork. 

What Will Put You Ahead

  • Technical Background: A technical or engineering background would be helpful in better understanding the technology and how it works; however, it is not a hard requirement
  • Experience with downhole equipment, well construction, or completions.
