We are recruiting Piping Designers!

If you are looking for a career that’s more about making a life than simply making a living, then apply to come aboard the Genoa team!


Genoa Design International 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.

We think big while never losing sight of the details. The Genoa team approaches everyday by truly living our core values:


Put People First – make decisions and take actions that strengthen and support our team.

Create Lasting Relationships – offer our clients and business partners the same respect and friendship we offer each other.

Own It – go the extra mile and take responsibility.

Never Stand Still – welcome each day as a new opportunity to learn, grow, and serve.

Live Well – find balance at work and at home by taking care of your mind, body and soul.

Genoa provides expertise and dedicated support throughout the shipbuilding process. Currently, Genoa is active in major government initiatives such as Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS) and in commercial contracts in shipyards throughout North America.

Genoa’s focus on innovation is closely aligned with our approach to collaboration. Our 3D model serves as a collaborative tool across project teams and stages, supporting partners over the long term, from initial design to decommission. These full-scale service offerings allow users to verify changes, optimize systems, and shorten engineering cycles throughout the whole life cycle of a project. Second only to our people, are the tools we deploy to succeed. With innovation, collaboration, and efficiency being fundamental to what we do, our Innovation Lab is pushing our company forward with industry-leading technologies. A balanced team of new and seasoned professionals provides a range of expertise, while an on-the-ground presence in North America’s key shipbuilding hubs ensures smooth sailing on each and every project.
