The Analyzer Engineer, as part of the Engineering Services department at the ExxonMobil Baytown facility, will interface with a diverse team of personnel such as Business Teams (people who run the plant), analyzer technicians (people who maintain for our on-line analytical systems), other technical areas (Safety, Instrumentation, Manufacturing Process Experts, etc.), and project planners (people who help facilitate projects for new on-line analytical equipment) to develop and maintain on-line analytical solutions to business problems. The individual will design and test new on-line analytical equipment prior to installation to ensure the designs are safe and will meet the measurement and business needs. Other aspects of the job include advanced troubleshooting of on-line analytical systems when problems do arise and learn about other aspects of the job such as safe system design, basic fluid mechanics, process chemistry, new measurement technology, and budgeting/estimating a new analyzer system’s installation cost.
Primary Job Functions
Design analyzer systems to take sample from a pipe, condition that material, and analyze the material without human intervention (a little fluid mechanics and some chemistry knowledge goes a long way)
Participate in project development and execution where you will be providing design specifications, reviewing process analyzer systems and their required infrastructure, and follow construction, field installation, and commissioning of these systems
Estimate costs and propose analyzer projects to improve operability, reliability, and safety

ExxonMobil, one of the world’s largest publicly traded energy providers and chemical manufacturers, develops and applies next-generation technologies to help safely and responsibly meet the world’s growing needs for energy and high-quality chemical products.
Access to energy underpins human comfort, mobility, economic prosperity and social progress. It touches nearly every aspect of modern life. Over the course of its long history of more than a century, ExxonMobil has evolved from a regional marketer of kerosene to an advanced energy and chemical innovator, and one of the largest publicly traded companies in the world. An industry leader in almost every aspect of the energy and chemical manufacturing businesses, we operate facilities or market products in most of the world’s countries, explore for oil and natural gas on six continents, and research and develop next-generation technologies to help meet the dual challenge of fueling global economies while addressing the risks of climate change.
Today, the ExxonMobil Baytown Complex is one of the largest integrated and most technologically advanced refining and petrochemical complexes in the world. Founded in 1919, the Baytown ...Refinery began operation in 1920 and the Chemical Plant started up in 1940. The complex is located on approximately 3,400 acres along the Houston Ship Channel, about 25 miles east of Houston. It is comprised of four manufacturing sites, including one in nearby Mont Belvieu, and a global technology center. Employing a workforce of approximately 7,000, the Baytown area sites are highly integrated which makes the plants and products more efficient. We are developing technologies to make cleaner fuels and are working together to operate more safely and reliably.
