  • Communicate your insights and recommendations clearly and widely with user personas, research reports, journey maps, and more
  • Coordinate usability studies with product designers to validate the effectiveness of your recommendations
  • Contribute to a library of shared research insights and personas across the platform
  • Partner with PMs, designers, and engineers to define long-term strategy and near-term objectives by grounding them in clear user insights

Who You Are:

  • You have 5+ years of experience in UX research on digital products
  • Comfortable working in a leaner research environment helping to establish and advocate for best research practice and methodology
  • You can quickly understand complex technical products and work with a highly technical customer base 
  • Your portfolio demonstrates execution of complex qualitative research plans, and shows the impact of your research on user experience
  • You can conduct research at scale and utilize a variety of research methods such as interviews, surveys, and usability studies
  • You can communicate effectively in a fast-paced product development process and know how to integrate research into design and product team roadmaps
  • You want to participate in all aspects of hands-on research such as planning, recruiting, analysis, and collaboration with design and product teams
  • You are adept at explaining your work, process, and decisions to cross-functional stakeholders and in selling the value of research
  • You can balance working with urgency and in depth, and adapt to what the situation requires
