The essence of the role

Following our success, we are now looking to recruit a Senior UX Researcher. This is a new role and as our Senior UX Researcher your main responsibilities will be to build a deep understanding of our users' needs, goals and workflows, turning qualitative user research into insights and artefacts which will shape the future of our products. You will establish and implement an overall research strategy with clear objectives in collaboration with cross functional teams keeping in consideration current and upcoming initiatives and business goals.

Working together in a cross functional team we believe you are curious to learn new things, as well as a driver to teach us more about UX research and help us develop processes, ways of working and habits that lead to excellent user experiences.

As our new Senior UX Researcher your main responsibilities will be to:

You will be part of a great team of designers and need to be a good team player who can also navigate your way with other stakeholders. As we are still, in a sense, in the beginning of our design journey, there are plenty of opportunities for you to bring your ideas and experience and make a real impact here.

  • Proven work experience within UX Research, ideally experience in working with technical products such as web applications or SaaS products
  • Proficiency in research methodology, showing a strong understanding of the strengths and limitations of different methods and how and when to apply them
