The maritime industry is at the cusp of digital transformation, and we at Wilhelmsen are here to shape the future. We are committed to shaping the maritime industry through our market leading products and services. We seek to pursue new opportunities in renewables, zero-emission shipping, and marine digitalization. We take innovation, sustainability, and unparalleled customer experiences one step further.

Through edge computing on vessels, autonomous ships, vessel performance management and onboard software for day-to-day ship management, we’re going after the vast opportunities in this otherwise traditional sector. We have software deployed and actively used on a third of the world’s merchant fleet, and we’re not stopping there.

The opportunity

We are looking for a UX Designer to bring our digital products portfolio, and take customer experiences with Wilhelmsen Ships Service to the next level. As our first in-house UX Designer, you will have a key role in shaping our digital products and how we as a department work with design.  

Wilhelmsen Ships Service Digital is a department that is passionate about developing software for the maritime industry and radically improving customer and user experiences. Our crossfunctional teams consist of product managers, software engineers, data scientists and other digitalminded people. Since we are a small and newly established team, you will be able to influence your role and how we work in the future.
