The User Centred Design Team at the Catapult bridge the gap between technical specialists, business experts, and end-users, blazing the trail in the space industry with a needs-driven rather than technology-pushed approach to application and service development.
We are changing the world through applying space technologies in areas as diverse as commercial fishing, disaster relief and sustainable development, supporting small and large companies alike. Projects may be internal or external, but your work will very likely be used and seen by a global audience.
We want our team to develop, so tell us what you want to learn and we’ll support you where we can. We value enthusiasm, a willingness to grow, and someone who values joy in their process. Humour is an essential part of our day to day life.
As a User Experience (UX) Designer your skills will be applied across the range of project areas we work in, supporting research and field work, and helping translate captured user requirements into robust design specifications. You will create user stories, wireframes, mock-ups, and prototypes, testing these with users throughout development. You will act as a quality control review of UX work across the Catapult, ensuring that the cutting-edge space technology services we create are being designed and delivered in the right way.
You will link with developers, satellite technology experts, and end users, to create world changing applications that take the biggest data sets there are and make them accessible, usable, and useful.
You will champion design across not only the Space Industry, but all the industries we support, engaging with start-ups and industry giants, academic institutions and governments (both at home and abroad).
You will bring new ideas, methods, and strategies to not just the team, but the organisation as a whole, and will inspire those you work with, as well as be inspired by them.
Great to have
