Jobs: Two at Ashored Innovations





Dartmouth-based oceantech company Ashored Innovations continues to grow and is hiring a Director of Engineering and a Software Engineer – two postings that headline our Jobs of the Week column.

Ashored has developed fishing equipment that reduces the dangers of animals such as whales becoming entangled in ropes as well as the hazards posed by lost equipment littering the ocean floor. Its first product, the Modular Ocean Based Instrument, or MOBI, is a lobster trap buoy that is positioned near the ocean floor and released only when the fishing boat approaches.

The Jobs of the Week column features openings posted on the Entrevestor Job Board, which focuses on jobs in technology, innovation and startups in Atlantic Canada. The Entrevestor Job Board helps match job openings and candidates in the tech and startup communities and is operated by Entrevestor and Alongside.

Here is an excerpt from the headline postings this week:
