Payload Integration Manager

We are a technology company that is transforming operations at sea to enable people and the planet to thrive.

We are open-minded and fearless in our approach to innovation and don’t believe in boundaries. We challenge everything and have massive ambitions to drag aging industries into the tech era.

We take safety, equality and education very seriously, and our responsibilities don’t stop at our front door. Our business is built on the belief that there’s definitely a more environmentally responsible way to operate at sea.

We only employ the best people. People with a desire for excellence, a curious nature, people who are thoughtful, humble, collaborative and accountable.

We reward our people well. Beyond what’s usually considered to be the ‘market average’. 

The opportunities for people in our business can be limitless, spanning a multitude of disciplines and open to all, regardless of background and experience level.
