       •    Value-added preventive maintenance tasks
       •     Effective utilization of predictive and other non-destructive testing methodologies designed to identify and isolate inherent reliability problems
• Apply value analysis to repair/replace, repair/redesign, and make/buy decisions
• Provide technical support to production, maintenance, project, and process engineering groups
• Lead interdisciplinary reliability improvement teams to guide efforts to ensure reliability and maintainability of equipment, processes, utilities, controls and safety systems.
• Implement Safety Instrumented Systems that meet availability requirements by translating Process Hazard Analysis requirements into technical design specifications and preventive/predictive maintenance plans.

Min. Qualifications

BS degree in Electrical Engineering with a minimum of 4 years relevant experience in the refining, petrochemical, chemical process, or power generation industries is preferred.  Strong interpersonal leadership skills are critical due to the requirement for effective communication of complex issues across the organization as well as for mentoring and consensus building.  The successful candidate must exhibit an understanding of business drivers, management of change requirements, reliability processes, and maintenance workflow.  The individual must have or develop basic proficiency in the following areas with the ability to develop into a subject matter expert in particular areas:
• Basic understanding of industry codes and standards (i.e. IEEE, ISA, NFPA, NEC)
