Focus on fibre

Interested a career in breakthrough data science or devops?

Digitising the upstream

  • BP has set an ambition to become the leading digital upstream company, transforming how we maximise value from data
  • One way we’re doing this is by making fibre optics a global design standard for all our wells – to capture data deep in the subsurface and turn them into actional information
  • Over the past 2-3 years, a small R&D team has deployed fibre in >50 wells in Azerbaijan, designing sophisticated algorithms to take data from the well to inform production optimisation.  During this time, we’ve added millions of barrels of oil a year
  • Now we need to scale-up: harnessing the power of this capability is so important that we have established a new digital team to focus exclusively on developing and delivering fibre optic sensing and analytics services for BP
  • This team will collaborate with existing and new partners to scale technology deployment building win-win relationships that grow the market.

An opportunity to join a new digital team in BP

  • This is an exciting opportunity to join a team with a mandate to drive sophisticated, breakthrough tech into a global giant
  • It will feel like a start-up, but with the impact and financial backing that only one of the world’s biggest companies can offer
  • The technical challenges we face are an order of magnitude tougher than the average data science and tech roles offered by finance and online advertising; they require deep understanding of physical sciences as well as computer sciences.
