One team. Global challenges. Infinite opportunities. At Viasat, we’re on a mission to deliver connections with the capacity to change the world. For more than 35 years, Viasat has helped shape how consumers, businesses, governments and militaries around the globe communicate. We’re looking for people who think big, act fearlessly, and create an inclusive environment that drives positive impact to join our team.

Job Responsibilities

We are seeking a talented UX Research Intern to join our growing Government Systems team. This team builds products and services that primarily support military users, on and off the battlefield.

This includes:

  • Enabling secure networks to be set up quickly
  • Encrypting confidential communications (and making sure they stay that way)
  • Providing resilient internet access on the planes that carry our nation’s leaders

We work with all branches of the military, including the Space Force and Special Forces. Our products take on complex technical tasks. Making those tasks easy to use under pressure makes for challenging UX.

For our military and civilian users, great designs are the ones that make complex data streams simple to process, reduce cognitive load, and enable quick decisions. Done right, our design work can save precious minutes, and ultimately, save lives.

We’re looking for a researcher who can contribute to the design process end to end – from exploring new user segments and needs to making UX recommendations and validating early prototypes.

Requirements

  • Currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree or higher in UX/UI Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Cognitive Psychology, Information Science, Data Science, Statistics, Human Factors, or another related field
  • Experience in Background in Human-Centered Design, Interaction Design, Product Design, and/or Human-Computer Interaction
  • Ability to commit to a 10-12 week summer internship

Preferences

  • Currently pursuing an MS degree in UX/UI Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Cognitive Psychology, Information Science, Data Science, Statistics, Human Factors, or another related field
  • Experience with research and design tools eg. Figma, UserZoom or similar
  • Experience with military or government contexts
