The role

We are looking for a proactive UX researcher with strong communication and collaboration skills to join an innovative product team in London focused on the future of work.

You must demonstrate a rigorous approach to qualitative UX research methods as well as having experience shipping consumer and/or enterprise software.

In particular, we value researchers with experience in standard generative and evaluative UX research methods, but who also have a history of taking a creative approach to answering new questions about humans’ interaction and experience with technology.

You will also have experience in qualitative research insights about users' needs and goals and developing research programs to ensure these insights are appropriately realised in a product.

Ultimately, your expertise and ingenuity in research must do more than just contribute to knowledge – you must also be skilled at driving measurable positive value to the product and to the user experience.

Responsibilities

  • Help employ a rolling research program (iterative user testing) to provide early quantitative and qualitative research insights and ensure accountability to these UX goals across the development lifecycle
  • Drive impact through a range of research approaches and tools particularly in iterative UX testing of early prototypes, such as usability, RITE testing, user interviews, and surveys
  • Work closely with partner teams (product design, software engineering) to understand their goals and stay aligned
  • Create close partnerships with a variety of research and product stakeholders to ensure a full understanding of the product team needs and priorities
  • Engage with product researchers across other teams to ensure strong sharing and collaboration practices 
  • Effectively communicate research findings and recommendations to stakeholders and partners

Education
Minimum qualification

  • 1+ years of product UX research experience with focus on usability testing and rolling research program
  • Experience in designing research to answer questions about the user experience

Preferred qualifications

  • MA/MS in Cognitive/Experimental Psychology, Human-Computer Interaction, Anthropology, Cognitive Human Factors, or a related field
  • PhD in Cognitive/Experimental Psychology, Human-Computer Interaction, Anthropology, Cognitive Human Factors, or a related field
  • Experience in the AR/VR space
