Frequently asked questions

You would work with mobile high-tech measuring devices such as the Leica AT 901-LR and the Surphaser 25HSX, 100HSX 3D laser scanners. With our Surphaser terrestrial laser scanners we have the most advanced laser scanning technology in the world with unsurpassed accuracy and long range. We can scan objects and geometries fully automatically – in sizes ranging from matchboxes to industrial halls.

We are pioneers in the use of 3D laser scanning technology, have many years of experience and are always at the cutting edge of technology. We scan up to 1.2 million data points per second in a measuring range of 0.2 to 120 meters, with very low noise in the sub-millimeter range. We can measure special target marks with laser tracker/measuring arm combinations. Always with a very high measuring accuracy, excellent data quality and high measuring speed.

The tasks change because of the different industries involved. Your workplace can be in a production hall, inside a power plant, outdoors or in an aircraft hangar. Adapting to new conditions and measuring tasks is not always easy. But in the automotive industry and particle accelerators, you see things that only a few people get an insight into.

Screwing at times, climbing with a climbing harness at other times is just as much a part of this as talking to fitters in a production hall or measuring a pipeline on your own in Africa.

The variety of objects to be measured allows you to develop your expertise step by step. You will have the opportunity to look behind the scenes of production processes, assembly and quality assurance measures.

Our surveyors have completed their studies in surveying engineering as a graduate engineer or have completed their master’s degree in raw material engineering with a major in mine surveying, or have studied at the Technical University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, or have completed their training as a surveying technician or a polytechnical college for mechanical engineering, building construction or civil engineering, or have completed an apprenticeship as a surveying technician

It is important to us that someone has surveying know-how, whether acquired through studies, practical experience or as an autodidact. Trained measurement technicians, geodesists, surveyors and machine surveyors have an advantage. The degree is not so important, nor is it necessary that someone has already worked in industrial surveying. It is important to us that you have a strong personal interest in working precisely and flexibly. You can find more information about the qualifications directly under the job vacancies.

English and German are required. You work with customer data and if there are questions, you must be able to discuss them by phone or e-mail. In addition, we have found that fitters on the construction site have a 0.0 tolerance for a lack of language skills.
In the field of industrial surveying, your place of work is the customer’s location. You are at the customer’s site for 95% of the time and spend only 5% at the company’s location in Telfs/Austria.

In the field of engineering surveying, your place of work is the company site in Telfs/Austria. You work in the office and in the field.

We offer you the opportunity to apply and expand your expertise in the field of industrial surveying in Europe, Asia and the USA. This year and next year our surveyors are on the road in Ravensburg, Bremen, Atlanta, Spartanburg, Tuscaloosa, McCalla, New York, St. Petersburg, Delft, Riyadh, England, Aarhus, Singapore, Linz, Tyrol, Bucharest and India.

In the field of industrial surveying, an order can take between 1 and 5 days or several months, depending on the problem. In damage analysis, for example in turbine construction, our survey is completed after 2 days, in the case of the installation of new production lines in the automotive sector, we are usually on site in pairs or threes for 4-6 months.

Industrial surveying is not a job for people who do not like to travel or who have difficulties adapting to different situations. Anyone who is not interested in mechanical engineering or does not know what a Torx screw is, for example, or has deficiencies in the use of tools, will find it difficult to gain the acceptance of fitters on site. Anyone who cannot handle a caliper gauge or is not in a position to independently consider the procedure for the measurement process will not be able to deliver precise measurement results. Our industrial surveying jobs are not for people who want to be at home with their families every evening or want to participate in club life every week.
For people who only want to travel very little, the activities of classical engineering and cadastral surveying are well suited.
The job of an industrial surveyor is ideal for someone who loves precision and technology and is interested in mechanical engineering. And of course variety and challenge. For example, climbing around on huge turbine wheels inside the power plant in the mountains of Austria, measuring a pipeline in Morocco a week later and then measuring parts of the cyclotron for proton therapy in the USA. Two weeks later to St. Petersburg to work again on a particle accelerator, this time on a resonator for accelerating electrons with a length of 1 m; but now we have to overcome difficulties at customs for the import of our measuring technology. Our jobs are ideal for people who like to discover new things and dare to fulfill even demanding tasks.
With a full-time position, the weekly working time is 40 hours. The start and end of daily working hours depend on the customer’s circumstances.
We employ employees through a work relationship (permanent position) and freelancers. Additionally there is the possibility of doing an internship or writing a diploma thesis. All employment relationships are based on Austrian labor law. As a surveyor’s office we are subject to the collective agreement. Among other things, working hours and salaries are regulated there. The classification depends on the job.

Yes, we do. This gives you the opportunity to get to know our work. You will work on surveying assignments and get a good insight into the work of the industrial surveyor. Theoretical knowledge in the field of surveying is a prerequisite. You should also be familiar with toolmaking and mechanical engineering. Logical and spatial thinking are important, MS Office is a must and if you have ever worked with CAD, this is an advantage. Internships vary in length. For your internship inquiry please send us an email.

We offer diploma / bachelor / master thesis topics with a direct practical relevance. You will also have the opportunity to get to know our company and our activities better. Of course, after successfully completing your thesis, you could also have the opportunity of working for us. Write us, if you are interested.

Of course, we are also interested in finding out which area of surveying (industrial surveying, 3D laser scanning, engineering surveying, cadastre) particularly fascinates you. Likewise, what particularly appeals to you about our job offer.

*) Training in surveying is important to us. So please write us whether you have been trained as a surveying technician or as part of your studies or specialist training in surveying. This gives us a clue as to which knowledge we can build on. As you know, there is no independent training of its own in the field of industrial surveying. We provide you with the necessary knowledge.

This refers to our measurements of particle accelerators, water and steam turbines, in aircraft and automobile construction, shipbuilding, paper machines, presses and rolling mills, segments, industrial plants and special machines. Wherever the customer’s plant is located, we measure it on site with a measuring accuracy of up to +/- 0.005 mm/m thanks to mobile and flexible high-tech measuring instruments.

Engineering surveying covers the entire construction industry (structural and civil engineering, concrete and steel construction) from planning to acceptance, as well as surveys in the wild and geomonitoring.
Yes, but our focus is on industrial and engineering surveying. If you are no longer interested in cadastral and land surveying, we can offer you tasks in the field of infrastructure and construction surveying. Of course, you also have the opportunity to expand your expertise in industrial surveying. Just get in touch with us to find out more.
