Job Description

UX Researcher                                                                                            

Do you live and breathe research, love working with people, and thrive on applying insights to influence product design and strategy? Our software client is searching for a Researcher to join their growing team in Mountain View.                                                                                            

You will join a talented, nimble team that is helping our client achieve its mission, which is to unleash the potential of teams all over the world. You will have the opportunity to conduct research that not only informs their ultimate mission, but that also feeds the design, strategy and development for some of their most loved products (like Jira, Confluence, Trello, Bitbucket, and others.)

Organizations like NASA, Twitter, and LinkedIn use their products everyday; their Research team is at the heart of helping uncover what makes these teams work well together.

Have the opportunity to make impact at a huge scale: they’re searching for someone to help them to identify and understand the questions they need to answer to move product strategy and execution forward. Your insights and discoveries will help inform not only their company strategy, but also our product experiences and long-term roadmaps.

You'll be empowered to work with autonomy and creativity every step of the way.                                                                                            

Develop a deep understanding of how teams work together in all kinds of industries, all around the world.

  • You identify as a creative individual who thrives in a team environment.

  • It would be great if you had experience with a variety of qualitative and quantitative research techniques, along with the knowledge of when and why to apply them.

  • This position will need a strong communicator who is able to influence and inspire change. You know how analyze data, to synthesize into a coherent and truthful story, and how to create effective ways of sharing your insights so they resonate and are impactful.
