We’re passionate about our technology and we’re gathering momentum…

MineSense Technologies Ltd is revolutionizing the Mining industry. We combine advanced sensing technologies, machine learning and data analytics to deliver critical information to mining companies that has never been available before. This provides them with the ability to better differentiate ore from waste at the mine face, improving decision accuracy at the front end of the mining process, with major economic and environmental flow on benefits across the mining value chain. Our novel solution is a critical element in creating the “Digital Mine”. Our technology dramatically boosts mine profitability and significantly benefits sustainability, thanks to more accurate processing decisions that directly reduce the environmental footprint of mine operations.

We are looking to add a geologist or geophysicist with a passion for sensors and data analysis to our Vancouver based GeoScience team. The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in rock characterization sensors, detailed data analysis and statistics. In-mine grade control experience is beneficial, but not essential. You will work with our Canadian and international clients to incorporate MineSense solutions into their production process and show the value our system can bring at their site. You will interact with our Data Science team to develop and monitor grade control algorithms, and you will collaborate with our Field Services and Product Development teams to improve the performance of our system. Using your in-depth understanding of challenges faced in mining and processing, you will propose and manage tests with new sensors on the extensive rock library at MineSense to demonstrate the benefits such sensors can bring when they are integrated in the MineSense sensor suite. If you enjoy working with sensors and data, collaborating with multidisciplinary groups, and have a (mining) geology or geophysics background, we want to hear from you!

THE ROLE will include (but not be limited) to the following:

  • Help new and existing clients leverage MineSense technology in their grade control engineering processes, which includes authoring client facing reports and presentations
  • Work with the Geo- and DataScience teams to develop ore grade prediction models by correlating mine grade measurements or estimates with our sensor results to identify patterns, trends or other data features that relate to grade, texture, mineralogy, or lithology
  • Develop and manage tests that validate the performance of new MineSense sensors on different rock types under variable conditions
  • Work with the Product Development team to further enhance our products and services through system data analysis and data QAQC
  • Work closely with the Data team to create queries, scripts, and reports while ensuring data is well organized and maintained
  • Uncover the Value and Use Cases MineSense systems offer to clients
  • Build and maintain good working relationships with our clients


  • Degree in Earth Sciences (Geology, Geophysics), Geostatistics, Data Analytics or related field. Masters or PhD will be highly regarded
  • Hands-on experience at in-mine grade control or working with ore control models preferred, but not required
  • Experience with rock characterization sensors preferred. The focus of MineSense is on XRF and visible to infrared (imaging) sensors
  • Work experience performing statistical analysis and/or Data Science in a professional work setting preferred, but not essential
  • Experience with SQL is beneficial, but not required
  • Experience and passion for solving analytical problems involving diverse data sets using quantitative approaches to generate insights
  • Strong written and oral communication skills
  • Attention to detail and an interest in problem solving
  • Spanish language skills a definite asset given our work in South America


MineSense is at the cutting edge of combining GeoScience and Data Science to solve key issues facing the mining industry today. We use the latest software, hardware, industrial controls, and communication technologies in each of our sensor-rich products. You will be deeply immersed in leveraging the latest technology and machine learning approaches within a mine setting, and will develop a highly valuable skillset as a result.
