In the summer of 2020, two of the three people with a geotag working for ExxonMobil’s (XOM) technology division — who were working on a geosynchronous satellite-based sensor system — were hired at ExxonMobile’s (xom) technology group.
The satellite system that would eventually become the Geotag-1 satellite, developed by ExxonMobile and designed by the University of Colorado, was designed to provide global positioning and geospatial services to the U.S. and other countries.
But as part of the satellite rollout, the geotags were changed.
The new names for the two engineers and the system software changed too.
One of the names on the job description was “GeoEngineer,” which means “computer engineer.”
The other, the former engineer, was now known as “ComputerEngineer.”
The new job description also changed to “Geotechnician,” which is not the name the new company used for the team.
The change was first noticed by The Hill in March of 2021.
At that time, the company told The Hill that it had no idea that it was changing the names of its employees.
By the end of the year, ExxonMobile had announced that it would start using the new names.
In the past, ExxonMobil has told the press that it has changed the names and logos of its staff members based on their performance, but the company said that it didn’t change the names or logos of any employees based on performance or performance-related performance.
The Hill asked ExxonMobile to explain why it was doing this, but didn’t receive a response.
The Geotagging Changes ExxonMobil told The Wall Street Journal in an email that “we changed our name to reflect the changing nature of our products and the change in technology” when it came to geotagging and the satellite system it was developing.
“We believe this was an intentional effort to reflect how the company views the importance of geospacial data, as well as the need to provide information to the global market,” the email said.
ExxonMobile declined to comment on the hiring of the engineers.
“This was a small change that occurred in an effort to better align our product offerings with our current needs and customer needs,” the company wrote in an emailed statement.
“As always, we look forward to a constructive dialogue with The Hill on this issue.”
ExxonMobile is currently one of the top five global oil companies by market capitalization.
The company is also one of America’s largest oil companies, and has a sizable presence in the U
