We are a global technology company, driving energy innovation for a balanced planet.

At SLB we create amazing technology that unlocks access to energy for the benefit of all. That is our purpose. As innovators, that’s been our mission for 100 years. We are facing the world’s greatest balancing act- how to simultaneously reduce emissions and meet the world’s growing energy demands. We’re working on that answer. Every day, a step closer.

Our collective future depends on decarbonizing the fossil fuel industry, while innovating a new energy landscape. It’s what drives us. Ensuring progress for people and the planet, on the journey to net zero and beyond. For a balanced planet.

Description and Scope

​​​Creation of 2D map visualizations aggregated from 3D subsurface grid properties in a cloud-based application.

We have a need to do backend processing in Golang to take property data on a 3D cellular grid and aggregate values to create a 2D map. Data will be retrieved from REST APIs and new APIs will be created in Golang to present the resulting maps. Performance and scalability will be a factor as the data can be quite large.

Filtering will be done to restrict aggregated data to particular "zones" or "formations" in the subsurface.


  • Addition of backend computation to do the creation of 2D maps
  • Creation of microservice APIs

Students would be expected to learn about microservice development, performance optimization, 3D visualization in the cloud, 3D computations, RESTful APIs, Golang​

​Required Skills & Qualifications

  • Penultimate or Final year Bachelors / Masters ​student in ​ Computer Science or a related discipline
  • Oral and written communication skills in English
  • Good motivation, autonomy, teamwork, and ingenuity
