Job Description

We are seeking a highly skilled Staff UX Researcher to join our team; you will play a critical role in shaping the user experience vision for our organization. You’ll lead and manage research projects, develop research strategies and methodologies, and provide insights and recommendations to improve the user experience of our products and services. We believe that research findings are most powerful when they break the boundaries of written reports, and are actively applied and used by product teams.

With your expertise in qualitative and quantitative research methods, you will mentor and coach earlier career researchers, collaborate with stakeholders across the organization, and drive the integration of user-centered principles into our product development process. We are looking for a passionate, collaborative, and tenacious person who is committed to putting the needs of our users at the forefront of everything we do.

Our research team is close-knit, collaborative, and supportive. We each bring unique strengths and interests to the group, and encourage each other to grow in our craft every day. This is a hybrid role with an expectation of in-office presence at our San Francisco office or New York hub 2-3 days a week.
