Simply put, we are looking for someone with extensive research experience, a towering intellect, uncompromising talent, and supreme organizational ability. And of course, you have to be fun to work with and get along well with mostly really cool people.


In a nutshell, we want to out-distance the competition and vastly improve any customer tool, application, or web/mobile property we touch.


Key responsibilities include:    

  • Take a question or a problem and be able to translate it into a testable hypothesis—complete with a specific method and tasks that illuminate the heart of the issue.
  • Be able to quickly understand the needs of our internal clients—especially as they relate to who their users are and what questions they really need to have answered.
  • Develop research strategies and proposals and execute on time and on budget.
  • Provide design recommendations with firm conviction and a gentle touch, while carefully reading people so you’ll always know the right balance of each.
  • Electrify project teams with concise reports and brilliantly prepared presentations under tight deadlines while juggling six balls (and a chain saw) with the other hand.
  • “Synergize” with our exceptional interaction and visual designers to further improve information architecture, site navigation, labels, and other design elements.
  • Perform other miracles and mythic feats as assigned, then figure out what else needs to be done.


Key Skills:

  • Extensive knowledge of user experience research tools and techniques (e.g. field research, heuristic reviews, usability testing, benchmarking, card sorts, lo-fidelity prototyping methods, etc.), and know the strengths and weaknesses of each.
  • Independently scope and plan a research program (can include multiple projects with multiple related studies), consulting with relevant stakeholders and team members.
  • Conduct competitive and comparative research and analysis to complement user research.
  • Leverage heuristics, VoC, statistical analyses, and other insightful methods to triangulate user pain points.
  • Ability to connect research findings from multiple projects/sources and provide insights on a higher order.
  • Confidently apply a range of frameworks to synthesize and solve research problems.
  • Experience planning and facilitating workshops (hypothesis, concepting, design-thinking, insights) with stakeholders to facilitate the design process.
  • Ability to mentor and lead other researchers.

Qualifications:

  • 3-5 years of user experience with multifaceted responsibilities. We prefer a mix of web and mobile experience.
  • Related experience in another field such as interactive design, information architecture, and/or market research is a plus.
  • Strong understanding of user interface design practices and principles a must—better still if you can demonstrate experience relating to research.
  • Strong project management and negotiating skills are central to the position. 
  • Strong communication, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving skills required. Your ability to demonstrate success in these areas should quickly become obvious. 
  • Ability to communicate research results, graphically depict data, and justify methods and approaches—orally and in writing—considered a good thing (wild gesturing optional).
  • Strong moderation skills and methods for group facilitation and consensus building.
  • Ability to work independently, in a team, and with or without direction is imperative.
  • Knowledge of OvoStudios, Morae, Photoshop, SharePoint, Visio, iRise or other prototyping tools are additionally advantageous
