0 people like this description

UX Researchers on our team need to identify what people want and need, partner with design and research scientists to envision how we could address those needs, collaborate with product management to make sure we’re building viable businesses, and iterate with engineering to hold our products to high UX standards. We’re a team of specialists and “full stack UX Researchers” who flow between product development stages, methods, and role definitions. We understand our products and technical capabilities in-depth so our research directly translates into product improvements and uncovers new product opportunities. 

As a UX Research Assistant on our team, you’ll work closely with our other UX Research, Design, Product Management, and Engineering teammates. Your main focus will be working with senior UX Researchers to execute field visits, ethnography, usability studies, surveys, etc. You'll prepare research activities, collaborate with recruiters, plan / observe / moderate usability testing sessions, administer surveys & interviews, analyze both qualitative and quantitative data, create reports that resonate with stakeholder groups, and communicate findings with the team and beyond. 

There will be some travel required, mostly in the US and mostly staying on the West Coast. You’ll need to be comfortable flowing between research methods and study topics (with senior UX Researchers guiding you along the way). Basically doing anything and everything we need to do to get the right research done at the right time.
