On behalf of innovative technology leader Cobham SATCOM we are looking for a skilled and ambitious Senior UX/UI Designer, who will be responsible for developing great design for their new website & partner portal in order to drive outstanding digital user experiences.

About Cobham SATCOM
Cobham SATCOM is a leading global technology and services innovator, respected for providing solutions to the most challenging problems – from deep space to the depths of the ocean.

Their satellite communications products are used in maritime, land and ground communication, and they design and manufacture these high-performance products under the brands TRACKER, EXPLORER, SAILOR and Sea Tel providing customers with outstanding performance, value and support through their global sales and service network.

Cobham SATCOM works with customers and partners across the globe and is at this moment experiencing vast growth with many new opportunities in the pipeline.
