We look forward overachieving together next year.”

Co-Founder for EVONA, Tom Kelly, who has been instrumental in building the relationship between the companies said of the collaboration:

“There is a great relationship already established between ICEYE and EVONA. We love their technology and people as well as working with a company that makes a difference to our planet and save lives. Finding niche roles within the space sector takes time away from companies innovating to the scale and speed ICEYE is; this is where EVONA can expedite the process and add real value. We have the know-how and capability to headhunt outside of our sector to reach out to individuals that have the necessary transferable skills, as well as the experienced individuals within who can deliver on ICEYE’s project missions to impressive standards.”

A dedicated EVONA recruitment team of experienced recruitment specialists is headed up by Space Business Partner, Rebecca Cox. Bex has over 12 years of recruitment experience and leads a team of 5 on the project. Bex added
