Welcome to our General Applications Page!
We hope that you've had a chance to review our website and that you like what you see! We're always looking for amazing people to join our talented group.

As a growing company, we're always looking for brilliant, curious and creative people who see opportunity in every challenge and doggedly pursue better ways of doing things. We routinely hire people we have the good fortune of encountering when we didn't even know we were looking for them, so if you don't see an open position that fits your skills and experience, don't despair! You're welcome to submit your resume and a cover letter outlining what kind of work you're interested in, and what appeals to you about working at RBR.
Some of the areas that we commonly hire for include:
- Technical Support
Since 1973, RBR has been designing and manufacturing oceanographic instruments in Ottawa, Ontario to measure our blue planet. The effects of climate change are being seen from the ocean’s abyss to the polar ice caps and our sensors quantify this change to support better analysis, improved planning, and more effective mitigation strategies. Our instruments measure water parameters in some of the harshest environments on the planet! They are mounted on underwater drones, dropped out of planes, and sent to the bottom of the ocean – sometimes for years at a time – all in an effort to get precise and accurate data to support climate research! We have been fortunate to be able to partner with some of the world's leaders in the field of ocean science, like Fisheries and Oceans Canada, The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, The Norwegian Polar Institute, and The British Antarctic Survey, just to name a few!
At RBR, our people care about the environment, our community, their work, and - of course - each other! We value curiosity, experimentation, and doing the right thing, and while we do some serious work to support world-changing science, we don’t take ourselves too seriously – we like to let our hair down and cut loose too!
