Lead UX Designer

Do you get an adrenalin kick by designing and making new technological concepts? Do you fancy being a troop leader for geeky software designers? Then we can offer you your next career move!  

4Subsea is a leading provider of technology and services that help operators optimise energy production from subsea oil & gas fields and offshore wind farms.
