Our UX Research team is passionate about getting actionable insights so that we can solve real problems for real people and incorporate empathy and user voice into product workflows.

  • Collaborate with cross-functional team consisting of product lead, designers, engineers to shape product design vision, identify research opportunities and manage a research roadmap.
  • Identify and prioritize short-term and long-term research that delivers impact.

Requirements

  • Minimum of 2+ years experience conducting  UX Research.
  • Knowledge of a set of qualitative and user-centered design methods.
  • Knowledge of quantitative, behavioral analysis, and statistical concepts.
  • Written and spoken English proficiency is a must.
