Wednesday, June 1, 2022

Are you looking for a rewarding career that spans the shipbuilding, defense, and tech industries? Do you want to work for a well-managed company that puts people first? Just named one of Canada’s Top Growing Companies, Genoa Design has grown to be the largest dedicated production design firm in North America, and we are continuing to grow! So, if you are looking for a career that’s more about making a life than simply making a living, then come aboard the Genoa team as our next Associate Director, Communications & Marketing!



Genoa has been providing production design and 3D modeling services to shipbuilding and offshore industries from here in Newfoundland and Labrador since 1995. In that time, we’ve become one of the most sought-after production design firms in the North American shipbuilding market with a commitment to quality as a recent ISO 9001:2015 certified organization.

With a team of more than 250 designers, engineers, naval architects, administrators, and technical support staff, Genoa provides expertise and dedicated support throughout the shipbuilding process and is advancing our digital ship capabilities. A shift is underway – we are moving from a shipbuilding company that leverages technology, to a technology company that focuses on shipbuilding. Genoa is active in major government initiatives such as Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS) and in commercial contracts in shipyards throughout North America.
