Viasat’s Dublin office has the best of both worlds — a work goal to which its employees are passionately devoted, and a relaxed but active social environment that binds the crew tightly together in that mission. And it’s all set in a city steeped in history yet brimming with sophisticated, modern cultural amenities.
The Dublin team specializes in developing customer experience software for airline and other mobility applications across the company.
“Our DNA is bringing together customer-focused product development, product management and design to create compelling customer experiences” said Dave Elliott, Managing Director of Viasat Ireland. “Currently, a key area of focus for us is the passenger experience, where we are developing new products and innovative business models. When we couple these products with the best satellite connectivity, and the right online partners, we have an offering that our competitors can’t match.”
In addition to passenger entertainment, the Dublin team also builds and refines Viasat’s flight operations software — AeroDocs and CrewApp. These products work together to help create a seamless flight experience for crew and passengers, improve safety, and reduce costs for our airline customers.
The team also does customer experience product development for other divisions within Viasat.
“Our success is built around the products we develop as well as the way we develop those products — all in this innovation hub environment,” Elliott said.
