  • You comfortably lead research initiatives to address both user behavior and attitudes towards new and current initiatives
  • You comprehensively plan and execute a research agenda using a wide variety of qualitative and quantitative research methods
  • You analyze and synthesize research findings into actionable insights that both fuel ideation and deeper empathy with our users
  • You communicate research findings and illustrate insights in compelling and creative ways to project stakeholders
  • You adapt and innovate research practices to meet team needs
  • You evangelize UX research practices and methodologies throughout the company
  • You want to participate in project planning, design review, and architectural meetings
  • You always look for ways to increase your knowledge and find things to be passionate about

  • 3+ years experience in applied product research and design
  • Knowledge of quantitative, statistical concepts and behavioral analysis
  • Ability to formulate, ask - as well as answer - meaningful and impactful questions
  • Ability to design and conduct quantitative research, such as surveying (questionnaire design, sampling, analysis)
  • Ability to design and conduct qualitative research, such as user interviews, user testing observations, and focus groups
  • Ability to break down complex analysis into concise results and actionable insights for a lay audience

What's really required:

  • Experience conducting international/cross-cultural research
  • Familiarity with qualitative methods and secondary research methods
  • Genuine interest in a job done well
  • Being a completionist; a job isn't done till it's done right.

Our Culture
  • We are seeking passionate, smart people who love technology and want to be a part of something bigger. Our projects range from crafting small to large-scale applications (i.e. eLearning applications used by hundreds of thousands of concurrent daily users) to designing and developing an entirely new way of composing and distributing digital music. We are not seeking someone who only considers themselves a "designer". Are you someone who is able to see the potential of a project and is excited at the chance to turn that idea into a reality?
  • The ideal fit will be self-motivated and capable of both independence and collaboration (via Scrum or similar Agile methodologies). You are able to accurately estimate the amount of work required to achieve a goal. You are constantly looking for opportunities to improve your skillset and enjoy finding ways to make processes (both software and human) more efficient.
